Kitchen Salt & Spice Bar
This bar is an excellent choice for cleaning odors from hands with its rich, spicy, fabulous scent. It's my favorite bar for the kitchen, especially after chopping onions or working with garlic or peppers. It has two odor-killing ingredients: coffee and anise essential oil. Whether you are a gardener, a fisherman, or a mechanic, this is what you've been looking for. Need exfoliation? Ground coffee beans and salt will do the trick to get off stubborn dirt. But you'll also want to keep your hard working hands moisturized, softened, and protected, so we've packed this bar with loads of unrefined shea nut butter. European spa salt makes this bar antibacterial, rock hard, and long lasting. No more mushy soap by the kitchen sink. Really, there's nothing not to love about this bar.
Ginormous 8-9 ounce bars.
Ingredients: saponified oils of coconut, unrefined shea butter, and castor bean, European spa salt, coffee, coffee grounds, and essential oils of anise, cinnamon leaf, cassia, may chang, lemon, eucalyptus, rosemary, ginger, and clove.

Great for camping too!

The sink salt bars are great for so many reasons but I recently discovered they are brilliant for camping too. Not only do they do a great job of removing cooking odours from your hands but are really great for doing dishes when camping. Just rub on a sponge and go! Much more convenient to pack for travelling than a bottle of detergent :)
Great bar of soap!

After trying a sample of the Kitchen Salt and Spice Bar, I ordered several more bars for myself and extra bars to give to my sisters. This bar really does remove onions/garlic smells from your hands. I use cold water to 'help' the process. I also use this soap bar in the kitchen for general hand cleaning. I also put one in the bathroom as it removes stubborn dirt from gardening, etc with its 'rough' texture. Makes a good lather too. And it is lasting and lasting. I put a loofah-type mat underneath the bars to prevent 'melting' away soap between uses. Has reduced liquid soap purchases for sure too. One bar does it all for us!
It really works!

I bought this because it was touted as taking garlic and onion smells off hands and I wanted to try it out. Well, it really works. It has a really nice smell to it too. Definitely recommend it.
Great kitchen bar

Surprise! New Shop Soap

I brought this bar out to help clean up after my brother and I worked on my motorcycle all day. We had fuel, grease and grime on our hands and this Salt Bar 'handled' it nicely! No stains in the cracks of my fingers and it made the smell of machines disappear. A winner for sure.. Thanks Apple Valley Soap!
It works wonderfully

I really love the way this works to remove cooking smells and such by the sink. I am not a huge fan of the way the bar smells on its own, but it is very mild on your hands post washing. It works really well for smell removal but doesn't lather/cream the way the lime bar does. Lime is still my preferred but I will take this over GoJo to remove stink ANY day.
Over a month and still going strong...

I put this bar next to my kitchen sink, atop a cedar soap deck, well over a month ago. It's still quite large, and not gooey in the slightest. The smell is fantastic as well. With my sensitive skin I have to use mostly unscented products, which smell like petroleum, so this is a huge improvement. These will definitely be my go to kitchen sink bar from now on.
Good for so many purposes

I originally purchased this to replace my liquid soap dispenser at my kitchen sink, but it has now become my kitchen-everything. I rub it on my sponges to clean my counter tops and use it as my first line of defense against stuck-on-food for my pans. Awesome stuff!
Way above my expectations

I have had this bar in my kitchen for five months and it looks like it's a little over half gone. Smells spicy divine. Reminds me of the sassafras that grows everywhere around my house. The coffee grains really scrub a dub all the smelly things off my hands and they are soft without the need of lotion. Love it, and I will get more for sure. A great gift soap.
Great bar for removing odors

This bar is great for getting smells off of your hands! I have been using this daily in my kitchen for about 2 months and it is still almost a full size bar. I've already ordered another one, but I think it will be a while before I use it at the rate that this one is lasting me!:) To me this bar smells like black licorice which personally isn't one of my favorite scents, but I still love this bar!
Best kitchen bar!

I will keep this bar stocked in my kitchen as long as AVNS keeps making it. It works great on getting all those icky scents off your fingers after you've been chopping onions or mincing garlic. The scent is amazing and it is even more moisturizing to my hands than I expected it to be. I use so much alcohol-based hand sanitizer at work that my hands get really dry and cracked. That's why I chose to switch over to bar soaps for all the hand-washing needs in my own house. This bar (and the pink himalayan salt bar in my bathroom) is really helping my hands to heal, instead of perpetuating the dryness. Thank you, AVNS!
I would give this one a 10!

One of my favorites! I keep coming back for more! Wonderful yummy smell and keeps hands soft! I find myself looking for reasons to wash my hands ;) I've been thinking of taking this bar to the shower to use as a shaving cream for my legs. The foamy lather is awesome!!

The soap dried out my hands and the smell was too strong.

This soap is great, removes the food and more smells from my hands.
I love it!

I spend a lot of time in the kitchen, and I wash my hands frequently. My hands were getting very chapped. Within one day of using this, my hands were noticeably softer. The smell is also divine!
Kitchen Spice Bar works great!

This bar really gets the yucky smells off!

I love using this soap after I've been cutting onions and garlic. It really gets the smell off my hands!

We found Apple Valley Soaps about a year ago. Let me tell you, I am hooked on their wonderful products. One of my favorite bars is the Kitchen Spice Bar. We use it not only in the kitchen, but in our bathroom as well. Being a keeper of our home and having four children, I wash my hands often. This soap makes my hands feel clean, smell great, & has never dried them out. An excellent find!
