Special offer for Brisbane Finders Keepers attendees
New Release - The Inaugural Washpool Advent Calendar!

It's so good to know it can actually still RAIN!

We were very happy to receive around 20mm of rain in the past week. You could practically hear the earth sigh with relief! While far from drought-breaking, there's a little water in our tanks and we're all feeling more optimistic.

Who doesn't love the rustle of opening brown paper packages tied up with string?

Have you ever thought about the sounds of gift giving and receiving?  So often, when I hear the pixies (our staff) packing orders I hear the sound of wrapping paper being cut and folded, cello tape being pulled off the roll, the scrunch of tissue and the generally awesome rustling of beautiful packages being put together.  The sounds trigger a sense of excitement and anticipation - powerful associations from childhood. 

We're very excited to add a very special Christmas offer for you and your loved ones - an Advent Calendar!  Like so many religious and cultural traditions, this one began long ago, marking the 24 days leading up to Christmas. Traditional advent calendars feature windows that open to reveal a poem, chocolate, gift or story.

Whether you're religious or not, Christmas can be a time when regular routines are disrupted, where we meet with friends and loved ones and also a time when we reflect on the year we've just lived and consider what our focus will be for the year ahead.  

During this time we want to offer you the opportunity to open 25 individually wrapped gifts, thoughtfully curated by the Washpool team for you to enjoy yourself, to give away or to share during special moments with friends and family. 

Advent calendars are intended to be opened one item each day from 1 December to Christmas Day. Each item is wrapped and numbered for that day of the month. Open that number each morning, or evening - create a tradition that works for you! 

This is a fantastic way to experience a wide range of Washpool products (and a few from other brands we stock and know you'll love!).


The value of this pack is over $300, but you can purchase it today for $165 (that's a 45% saving!).


This item can be pre-ordered, and we will start shipping on November 1, 2019. A limited number of Advent Calendars are available.


If you'd like us to ship it to a friend, just add the recipient details in the notes section. You can even personalise a note.

Exclusive Christmas Day gift

Item #25 will only be available in these Advent Calendars! It will be a wonderful addition to your Christmas Day.

What's inside?

We can't tell you! But you'll love it.

  • The outside of the box will be branded with Washpool tape.
  • When you open it you'll see a note with instructions on how the advent calendar works (and if you've chosen to add a note this is where it will be).
  • Under the note will be 25 packages gorgeously wrapped and numbered. Open the number matching the day of the month (eg open #10 on the 10th December).

The Finders Big Bonus! 

The stock we take to Finders Keepers will be carefully curated to fit into a tight space. We don't want you to miss out on your favourite Washpool products so we're giving you the opportunity to pre-order anything in our online store for pickup at Finders. 

Pre-orders help us with organisation and planning and we want to reward you for planning ahead, by including amazing gift with purchase offers each week until Finders Keepers.  

But here's the thing. The biggest bonus will be this week, valued at a massive $59.00 and each week leading up to Finders Keepers we'll announce a new bonus (with each being awesome, but less than the week before). 

The small print:
  1. The gift with purchase will apply for orders over $100.
  2. When you make your pre-order select 'Pick Up At Finders Keepers Brisbane' and you'll save a further $9.95 on freight.
  3. Order this week (by midnight 21 October) and enter the code and we'll add a free full-sized 50ml Face Oil (valued at $59!).

Today is World Handwashing Day! This year's theme is "Clean Hands for All"

Did you know that globally, 900 million students lack a place to wash their hands at their school? 

At Washpool we are proud to be affiliated with the Global Handwashing Organisation. October 15 is a day of advocacy to increase awareness and understanding about the importance of handwashing with soap as an effective and affordable way to prevent diseases and save lives. 

To mark this day, we're donating to World Vision to help build handwashing stations in schools. As supporters of Washpool, you also share in our contribution and for that, we thank you. 



Back in stock! Seriously folks, these new bars do not belong in seconds!!!

We have a rather tricky situation where our 1kg Bargain Bag (seconds) are in such demand we regularly sell out. If it was any other product we'd increase production and simply make more, but Bargain Bags are made up of seconds, batches made in soap making workshops, ends of lines and experiments (a new scent blend or colour technique).

As we don't make soap on school holidays we sold out yet again recently. Even though we were back in the soap kitchen last Tuesday and made around 100kg of soap, the ends only make up about 9kg. You can see the problem. I need to sell the 91kg of first-grade bars before I will generate more ends.

UNLESS!!!!!!! We happened to finish one supply of Indigo and start another from a different supplier and suddenly we were confronted with colour many times as deep as we were used to. And we all know that Indigo is a dye so subtlety is important.

Never fear. Emily chopped up that deep indigo batch (Lemon Myrtle & Patchouli, by the way) and we set it into a lovely creamy base scented with Australian grown peppermint. Ahhh-maaaz-ing.

And because they don't belong in our existing range they're heading into the seconds. Tragic. While your Bargain Bag might not currently have a huge amount of variety the quality is perfect. Don't hesitate, they won't last.

The Washpool Difference

Washpool is a small rural soaperie in Ballandean, Queensland. We believe in being small enough to listen and being big enough to deliver. We believe in hand made and we take pleasure in providing meaningful employment to people living in our rural community. 

We take a minimalist approach to handcrafting our soap bars. Wholesome ingredients, purposefully selected. We believe that health comes first and beauty follows. Our 
clients value authenticity, simplicity and purity.

Wherever possible, we choose to source our ingredients locally, often direct from the growers.  When we purchase ingredients from further afield we place great emphasis on using ethical, organic, fair trade and sustainably produced raw ingredients. Our packaging is biodegradable, recycled and recyclable where possible.

Our products include cold pressed edible oils,
butters and milks, extracts, infusions, activated and whole botanicals along with clays, honey, fruit and vegetables. Basically, ingredients
you can recognise, most of which are edible.

Review & win!

Every month one reviewer will be chosen randomly & awarded a $20 credit on their Washpool account

Each review you make during the month will give you an extra chance in the draw. Reviews made during the previous month are eligible.
