A LAKE OF SOAP. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 28 February 1914

A LAKE OF SOAP, One of Naturo's marvels is to be seen in the north-east corner of the State of Washington. It is a lake which hears the name of Soap Lake, and in throe miles in length by one mile in breadth. The water in the lake tastes like a mixture of soap and salt, and its peouliar proporties are such that when the water is heated, no soap is required for a bath, for as soon as the water comes into contiot with the natural oil of the skin, it is gently rubbed, it forms a beautiful lather. The only drawback is that when ap plied to tile head, one's hair is apt to turnl from its natural color to a dusty red, if not washed with fresh water, In other words, it bleaches, the soda in the water no doubt being tho cause of this, The Soap lake is well-known through out America on account of its wonder ful healing properties. Indeed, it is asserted that its waters provide a oure for all the ills tihe lesh is heir to, Rheumatism, skinf diseases, stomnach and blood disorders-all seem to giv...
