Stinkybomb Soaps :: Hand Grenade Soap $14

Maker: Megan Green

Based in: Columbus, Ohio

Price range: $7-14


A few years ago, Megan Green’s life was blown up by a fake grenade. Green’s husband makes replica weapons for reenacters and prop houses and “while I was tending to our newborn daughter a few years back, one of his grenade molds caught my attention,” she said. Having dabbled in soap making, Green had the basics down. “A quick trip the to the craft store and the first Stinkybomb Soap was made,” she said.

Green is now a mother of two and not only manufactures and sells fragrant soaps in made in the shape of grenades, states, doll heads and cassette tapes, she is one of the organizers of Craftin’ Outlaws as well as a manager for a Columbus-based candle shop chain.

Stinkybomb Fun Facts: I enjoy a glass of gin and tonic after the kids fall asleep. If I could I’d wear jeans and a t-shirt to every upscale event I was invited to. Before I had kids I would read books and watch movies and go to concerts; one day I hope to do these things again.
