What They are Saying

  • Woodsman Shaving Soap
    The shave soap is a real beard buster. The lather was thick and covered the brush and beard well, without disappearing fast. My skin didn’t get irritated either.
    Mike S.
  • The lather of the Mulberry soap is hearty, but washes clean. The warming scent lingers, but doesn't overpower you. I especially love the way my skin, and my bathroom, smells after I use it.
    Kara R.
  • Dandelion Shampoo Bar
    I'm hooked on the shampoo bar from your soap collection! No need to have another shampoo product in the house. My only struggle will be finding enough soap dishes for all your amazing products!

  • Meet the maker: Marifel is a fibers artist who is currently out of work due to coronavirus. She is sewing masks for Mayapple Soaps. Together, we’ve sewn 60 masks for people in need that were donated through Route 1 Mask Match. We also sewed masks for a popup happening this week at Shop Made in DC. Choose from 25 different masks makers in their online shop. 😷✊🏽 #shopmadeindc #madeindc #facemasks #r1mm #maskmatch #masks4all #masksforsale #reusablefacemask #washablefacemask #mydccool #brookland #hyattsvillemd #washingtondc #202creates #quarantinelife #strongertogether #facemask #seamstresslife #sewistsofinstagram #pandemicpreparedness #reopening #womenownedbusiness #dcbusiness #stayathomedc #stayathome #maskmaking #maskmaker #outofwork #sewingsaveslives #sewingismytherapy
  • The Big Leaf Magnolia in my rain garden bloomed today. This is the biggest native flower to North America (same prize for leaf size). It isn’t pollinated by bees, but beetles and other crawly things. There’s actually some pollinators inside the flower in the first photo.

  • DC is lifting the stay at home order June 8. Are you ready? We’re all going to be required to wear a mask. If you’ve been holding out, or wearing a scarf around your face, its time to get a reusable, washable, comfortable mask that you can wear during the months ahead.

Check out all the trendy prints we’re using from @threelittlebirds.sewingco Swipe right to see options, including 🦕 🦖 and red pandas (not just for kids masks if you ask me!) Solids also available if you need a more professional look. Masks are sewn by seamstresses who are out of work due to coronavirus. Your purchase supports them! 💜 Order at MayappleSoaps.com.

  • Mayapple Soaps will sew it, volunteers will deliver it. Donate at MayappleSoaps.com. Every $10 equals one mask for someone in need. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
In partnership with @route1maskmatch we are giving masks to local families who are receiving a delivery of food from Capital Area Food Bank and Better Bites. The challenge is to get 400 masks by Friday. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Over the past 6 weeks, Mayapple Soaps has donated 160+ masks and 20+ pounds of soap to the community. We’ve also sewn over 550 affordable pay-what-you-can masks. Please help us keep going, by supporting the Mask Match!

  • Masks come in fun kid styles too. Pinwheels, polkadots, birds, flowers, smiling moons, with many more patterns on the way. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
My at-home fabric stash is all gone. (So much for that quilt I was going to sew and never did!) To replenish the supply, I'm buying from a local business, Three Little Birds Sewing Co. in Hyattsville. I'll have lots of trendy, gender-neutral prints, and solids too, next week. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Masks are selling as fast as they are made, but every time I leave the house I still see the vast majority of people not wearing anything over their face, not even a scarf. Don't be that guy. And please please, don't wear your mask as a necklace. So passé.
