The bath brushes arrived today. Along with several other goodies Bethie apparently doesn’t want to have to explain to the TSA (“Taking Scissors Away”) droolers at the airport.
Most impressive is a painted wooded paddle that’s been (very lightly) carved from a standard piece of kiln-dried pine 1×4 lumber. Impressive heft, nice balance, and it makes an astounding noise against the palm of my hand.
The bath brushes are longer and lighter than the infamous Vermont Country Store model, but they are nonetheless sufficient unto their appointed task. One is round, one is oval. Preliminary effectiveness testing will be required in order to decide which one to use for the promised bath brush spanking.
