Wash and Learn

soap hope!

Your driving record is squeaky clean. And that credit score is clear as day.

But your hair and nails are another story.

Restore them with help from Soap Hope, a Dallas-based site that sells all-natural bath and body products (soaps, shampoos, lotions, bath salts) from boutique companies including Texas’s Fraiche and A Wild Soap Bar.

The company invests 100 percent of profits (yep, you read that right) in interest-free loans for charities that scrub away at poverty by lending to female entrepreneurs. Like The Plan Fund, a local microlending group that dishes money and training to low- to moderate-income go-getters around town.

Ensuring you have a clear conscience.
