Goodie 2 Shoes from Home Scents and Violets


It’s in the bag with our Goodie 2 Shoes pouches containing Zeolite.



Never heard of it? Well, here comes the info.

Zeolite is an ancient volcanic rock formed from the ash thrown up by  eruptions. It has the capacity to absorb smells and moisture without any chemical or physical change in the Zeolite itself. The material can encompass and control many times its weight in odours or moisture.  It’s a brilliant all-rounder with so many uses, but for now, let’s concentrate on those smelly shoes. Because it dries out the shoes, Zeolite removes the source of the smell and sucks the odour out while continuing to inhibit the growth of fungus and bacteria. Please note… this does not happen in a flash, but after a short period (usually overnight) it is very effective.

After the product has become saturated with the odours it has been absorbing and is no longer efficient, place the pouches outside in direct sunlight for 6 hours and the Zeolite recharges and can be used again…might take a bit longer in this country! It is totally non-toxic to people, animals and planet —it can be used on the garden as a plant food after its’ deodorant properties decline.

So, don’t put up with those smelly shoes walking all over your domestic bliss.One of Home Scents Goodie 2 Shoes bags in each shoe will soon allow the family to breathe easy. These individual handmade bags come in a variety of colours and materials to suit all tastes. Each bag is unique; no two are the same. Which means there is no worry about matching up.

They are made in France by a lady who uses all the style for which the French are famous. Her skilful use of gorgeous fabrics and tasteful beading has resulted in a range of delightful pouches. To help you choose the fabric type Judith has come up with “Bright and Cheery” for  Little Ones, “Pretty and Delicate” for Ladies and “Clean and Simple” for Men.  A boon for those who don’t like wearing socks with shoes and very useful to put in suitcases storing clothes to keep them odour free.

As I say, only one of the many uses for Zeolite, a true Eco Friend.

Another visit to that big house at the end of the Mall in London.

Buckingham_Palace_from_gardens,_London,_UK_-_Diliff“Elizabeth, old thing, what’s happened to all the nice biscuits? The Royal bickie tin is empty apart from a few duff old Garibaldis. Has Charles been yaffling the Jammy Dodgers and my favourite Custard Creams again? ”

“No, Philip, not Charlie this time. I thought it was Cameron because it always seemed to be after he’d been here. Then I noticed that it was only when Georgie Porgy came with him that our goodies went missing. I tackled Cameron about it and he confirmed that the Chancellor was indeed the culprit. Apparently, number ten is lacking pink wafers and chocolate digestives.”

“Good lord, terrible state to get into. The bounder should be horse whipped. I’ll get one from the stables.”

“Not just now, Philip, we’ve got a meeting with the leader of the opposition soon. Miliband is on his way.”

“Millie Band, I didn’t know the Labour party had a woman leader.”

“No, dear heart, Ed Miliband. Not a woman —Oh, I don’t know though.”

“Well, make sure he gets those damned Garribaldis.”

A Report from Down and Out Street…Oh no, Downing Street.

A wail of anguish was heard in the PMs kitchen.

“Samantha, someone’s been at my biccy tin again. The greedy swine has left me those manky garibaldis that we usually give to the Lib Dems at Cabinet meetings. All my pink wafers and chocky digestives have been nicked. There’s a thought; it wasn’t Cleggie was it?”

“A bit nearer home, Dave. The maid told me that Georgie Porgie from next door nips in and out while we’re not here and snaffles a bagful for their biscuit barrel.”

“Old Tight Wad himself. Not content with squeezing the nation, he gets me to supplement his rations. Right, next reshuffle he’s for the chop. That should win us the election”

More Mischief from Radio Garramungup…….

BOBS new factoryWe’ve just had a report in from Brucie Whytethighs down at Bob’s Natural Laundry Centre — yes, Marlene decided a new name was needed.  “ To corner the market here in Garramungup.” Bob pointed out that it’s not a big market — only 115 people live here. A poke in the eye and a kick up the Southern Hemisphere from Marlene’s size twelve Army boots sorted that out!

Marlene According to Brucie, Marlene was gobsmacked when she saw how clean Bob’s long johns came out of the machine after a dose of Violets Laundry Powder and a pre-soak in her Earth Friendly Bleach. Bob threw a wobbly because he thought she’d chucked his treasured LJs away. Once again, the threat of physical violence and her demanding her marital rights had him cowering in the dunny (outside loo.)

By the way, Brucie won’t be able to report for a spell. He tried to do a wheelie on his moped in Bob’s car park, lost control, flew through the air and ended up in the back of the local garbage truck. Bob flogged him the large size Zeolite before sending for the ambulance!

It’s all kicking off Down Under

Radio Garramungup Catchup.

Trouble Breaks Out at Bobs Zeolite Factory

Trouble Breaks Out at Bobs Zeolite Factory

We’ve had a report from our roving correspondent, Brucie Whytethighs, that there was a scrap at Bob’s Zeolite Centre recently.

Apparently, Bob’s missus, Marlene, heard our report about Judith Mathias knocking down the price of Zeolite and then doing a nickywhoop (hasty departure) legging it back to Home Scents with her swag.

Marlene went off like a bucket of prawns in the sun and gave poor old Bob a real pasting. She’s not a pretty sight at the best of times, but when she goes berko she’s as ugly as a box of blowflies. To be fair, Bob’s no oil painting. In fact, I’ve seen better heads on a glass of beer!

So, after all that, Bob went walk about till the hullaballoo died down. It turns out that Marlene had a gander at Home Scents web site and took a liking to Violet’s Laundry range and now wants the Zeolite Centre to start stocking them.  She’s tried all sorts of cleansers to brighten up Bob’s long johns but they stay the same dingy grey after every wash. To be fair they are a bit ancient as they’ve been handed down from father to son for several generations!

We will get Brucie to follow that one up. I’ve seen Bob in those LJs at the swimming hole and you don’t feel like having your tucker after that!


queenOverheard in the kitchen of that big place at the end of the Mall in London, with all those blokes in red jackets and big black tea cosies stamping up and down outside. By the way, they could cut the noise down if the lads wore trainers or slippers. Then the Royals could watch Tipping Point in peace and quiet.


“I say, Elizabeth, did you hear that. Radio Garra something from Australia rattling on about this Zeolite stuff that gets rid of nasty smells? We ought to bung a load into the Houses of Parliament; a few bad pongs hanging around those places. Tell you what, next Opening of Parliament we’ll fill the coach with it and get the footmen to spread it all over the gaff!”

“Oh dear, Philip, you haven’t taken your tablets, have you? Where will the corgis and Anne’s horse sit? Nurse, grab the ducal nose and hang on tight while I lob his pills down his gullet and don’t let go until he’s swallowed them all. He does spit them out and leaves a trail like Chiclets along the Royal corridors. After he’s had his cocoa, he can walk the dogs and I’ll have a butchers at this Home Scents web site. I understand they do a really good range for dogs.”
