Mid-race update: Sanders in the lead

It's the midpoint of The Duck Stops Here election soap campaign. Customers have been "voting" all summer for their favorite candidate with their soap purchases.

Gary Johnson joins The Duck Stops Here election soaps

Since we introduced The Duck Stops Here election soaps, we’ve gotten the sense that customers love the soap, but hate the candidates they represent. Said one customer, “This dragon’s blood scent is awesome, but I just can’t stand Donald Trump.” We told her that as soon as she cut off the label, she wouldn’t know that Donald Trump was all over her in the shower.

After staying in two shelters and having a cargo seat on a plane, Star wasn’t smelling her best, so we gave her a bath with commercial dog shampoo. Now she didn’t smell like dog, she smelled like a dog who had rolled in rose petals, which was just wrong.

Because a pet’s sense of smell is 1,000 times more sensitive ours, we felt it important to make it unscented for your pet’s comfort--and dignity at the dog park. Our all-natural pet shampoo...
