HMS Belfast carbolic soap and brush

Scrub up with this 200g bar of carbolic soap and scrubbing brush. Featuring an exfoliating apricot kernel shell, it will leave you spick and span and ready for the day.

Sailors were traditionally issued with a 20 CM long bar of soap called Pussers’ Soap. The soap would have been used to wash themselves and to keep their kit clean. Similarly, this soap can be used in the same vein.

Each rating (Sailor) was issued with a new bar along with his pay every four weeks. Pay would not be issued if you did not pass routine hair inspection; if it was too long you had to go and get it cut which meant no pay, and no soap!

The packaging features and image from the IWM archives of a sailor using his soap.

This product is eco friendly, with raw materials from recycled sources.
