Meet a "soap slinger" at NW SolarFest

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

A wide variety of businesses and organizations will be on display at the Northwest Solar Fest, Saturday, July 28, at Shoreline Community College, 10am to 6pm. (see previous article)

One of them is Shoreline based soap maker, Michael Miller of Mr. Kitty’s Soap Shop.

Mr. Kitty’s Soap Shop began producing soap in the summer of 2010.  The name comes from Michael’s pet, an abandoned house cat he rescued in New Orleans fourteen years ago.  “Naming the shop after the Mr. Kitty was the least I could do for a pet that put up with me all these years.” chuckles the animal loving soapmaker.  

After less than a year of launching Mr. Kitty’s, Michael was able to quit his day job and focus on making soap full time.  “I went from just a few types of bar soap, to a line that now includes soap, lip balms, lotions, bath salts, laundry supplies, and my hugely popular handcrafted shaving kits.” says Michael.

From the beginning Mr. Kitty has been well received. "I've had a great response from the community," says Michael. "They appreciate my ‘shop local’ message, the earth friendly touches I put into my line (soap wrappings are unbleached parchment and recycled or upcycled paper, the line includes Soap Nuts, a chemical free laundry detergent, and as much as possible ingredients are biodegradable and sourced from fair trade and environmentally friendly suppliers ). 

For more information on Mr. Kitty’s Soap Shop, contact Michael Miller, soap slinger, 206-245.8042 and be sure to see him at the Solar Fest.
