A bath bartered for ice cream is usually a wash.
You bathe them; they eat; you need to bathe them again.
Start your next round of negotiations from a position of strength with Tart & Bubble soapsicles.
The new, nonedible treats (from the folks behind the Feverish Ice Cream Truck) look and smell just like the real deal but are actually soap on sticks. Made with scented organic and natural essential oils, “flavors” range from lemonade to chocolate milk shake. And with sudsing power equal to boring old bars, they get the job done.
Just when you were about to abandon all soap.
