Making Scentz (aka Homemade Bath Products)

The Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act of 1938 was authorized by FDR amidst a burgeoning public outcry for consumer security from quack remedies and cosmetic products that triggered harm rather than remedy or improve the user. The take action was made to protect the public from products that made fraudulent or unsubstantiated promises, or that caused harm credited to inclusion of harmful elements.

The act protected the broad range of both what is consumed or ingested as food and those ingredients that are accustomed to treat, enhance or cure cosmetically. Manufacturers who create soaps are held accountable for creating a safe product still. Soap that makes no claims to do anything than its intended purpose, that is, as a cleansing agent is not just a cosmetic under FDA guidelines and it is not subject to the rigorous labeling guidelines of cosmetics. Instead it is governed by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, an independent federal regulatory company which is billed with protecting the general public against unreasonable risks of injuries and deaths associated with consumer products. However, there are exceptions to the.

When you were done the pieces simply taken off again to be utilized at a future time. The ‘Fuzzy Felt’ boards arrived in a good range such as bouquets etc, and were good fun. Weebles. You must keep in mind these, “Weebles wobble however they don’t collapse”. They floated also. Consisting of various characters with a round base and a weight in the bottom so they might always go back to vertical no matter how much you rolled them around. Play Doh. This is great stuff and came in a variety of colours such as pink, yellow and blue. Sly Muck. Interesting stuff for the ghoulish this.

Essentially a sloppy green goo in a tub that made terrible squelching noises when you used it. Looked a little like a huge amount of snot, and well suited for supporters of the “Fungus the Bogeyman” books. Overall revolting stuff, but had a great fascination for kids as they love all of that kind of yukky stuff. Mud. This was a strange chemical that you could throw against wall space and it could go ‘SPLAT’ and flatten out.

You then simply removed it, rolled it back up into a ball and repeated the exercise, good fun though! Plasticine. Hours of entertainment could be had from this stuff, which is well known to be used to make the individuals, “Morph” and “Wallace and Grommit”. I put loads of the stuff, rather than tired of it.

Lego. Of course, the one everyone acquired (well practically)! We had a big metal tub of Lego, and I used to endlessly build with it. I never made anything fancy, mainly houses and towers, but this is good entertainment and not at all boring. Spirograph. This toy consisted of various different size, serrated edged, plastic circles with a gap in. Space Hoppers. Those great big bouncy balls with a pair of horns on that you can retain as you bounced around together with them. Humming Tubes, (can’t remember the proper name for these). Essentially consisted of a long serrated plastic pipe that looked a little like a slim elephant’s trunk.

You twirled it around your mind, and it howled. Depending about how slow or fast you twirled it effected the tone of the sound it made. Slinkies, those metal spring shaped things that “walked” down the stairs if you tipped them over from the very best stair. Spy Master, (at least that is what I believe it was called), consisted of a real face with a bald mind, a magnetic wand, and lots of iron filings in the display screen that protected the face. You could press it against your lips and blow bubbles that popped through it. Stylophones. First marketed by Rolf Harris from what I remember.
