I mean, just look at him! He is one cool dude!
Dave is an interior woodworker, or cabinet maker, or carpenter, or…well, you get the idea. He builds things. Really beautiful things. From built-in cabinetry, to heirloom chests, kitchens to finished basements, he does it all. Though, sometimes, he needs a little help from his apprentice…
He works for a local shop Monday through Friday, and also owns his own company and works week nights and weekends. He’s busy. All that work leads to calloused hands, missed dinners, dirty clothes, ripped jeans, blood, sweat, and even more sweat.
Oh, and, really stinky feet.
I can get past the late nights, the piles of laundry, the callouses, but, his feet? I. Just. Can’t!!
Dave wears steel toed boots, every day. All day. Even in the Summer. He’s on his feet all day. He’s a dude. This is not a good combination.
I’m usually the one who tells him when it’s time for new boots. (He calls it “nagging”) I’ve even gone out, in desperation, and bought him a new pairs when the old ones got to be too odoriferous. This week I realized that I bought him his last pair for his birthday. I thought it was last year, but a quick scan of instagram showed me that I was wrong. Really, really, WRONG! It hadn’t been one year since I bought these boots, it was over TWO!!
And here is what they looked like 112 weeks later….
So, I did what any fantastic wife would do! I
told him he was smelly and gross went out and bought him new boots! I also picked up a pack of fresh socks, and the New Irish Spring Signature Hydrating Bar Soap and 3-in-1 Body Wash! I wasn’t about to let him put stinky feet and grungy socks into his brand new boots!
Our family has been using Irish Spring soap forever. I honestly don’t remember a time when we used a different brand. So, I was really excited to find the New Signature products in the store. Irish Spring Signature products are made with authentic ingredients. I got Dave the Hydrating formula bar soap, made with Shea Butter. And the 3-in-1 with mint extract! Both the soap and the body wash lather up well, smell amazing and leave my guy’s skin clean and healthy! They are made for the cool dude in your life who wants a “man-sized” cut of soap, or the guy who is low maintenance and doesn’t want to deal with multiple products. For that guy, the 3-in-1 is PERFECT. Shampoo? CHECK! Body wash? CHECK! Face wash? CHECK! It’s simple!
Avery was totally on-board with this gift! She comments (almost as often as I do) on the odor emanating from her daddy’s shoes.
She helped to make sure that those old boots didn’t see the light of day (or the inside of a shop, or a customer’s house) ever again! She tossed them in the trash (outside!) and did a celebratory dance!
We’re all happy that we can live our lives, boot-odor free (and free from my incessant “nagging” to “Put those disgusting things outside!”) thanks to Irish Spring Signature, and a fresh pair of work boots!
For the sake of full disclosure (and the only way my husband would let me write about his foot-stink) I must confess that I too have, sometimes-smelly -feet, and, as genetics would have it, so does Avery. We’re nowhere near as stinky as Dave, of course, but…ya know…sometimes… Let me put it this way, it’s not all lilacs and sugar cookies in the girl’s shoe closet! Thank goodness for Irish Spring (Manly, yes, but I like it too! – Anyone else remember that commercial from the 80s?)
