A Great Dog Soap Recipe – Frank’s K-9 Soap

dog soap recipe

Here is a Dog Soap Recipe Submitted By Frank

Just the other day, Frank who is one of the Soap Making Fun Newsletter readers, submitted this recipe for his K-9 soap.

He said that in the past 2 years, this soap has been one of his best sellers at craft shows.

With the combination of oils in the recipe, you know it’s going to have your dog smelling great!  On top of that, those same oils will act as a repellent to mosquitoes and fleas!

Try it out and see what you think!

Thanks, Frank!

Please be aware that this recipe is ONLY FOR DOGS.  This soap should NEVER be used on cats or rabbits!
