It’s crawfish season — I say AYEEE!!
And if you touch your eyes after eating crawfish, you’ll be saying a lot more than ayeee.
When washing your hands after eating crawfish, sometimes simple water and soap won’t do, luckily for us – a local business is providing some needed relief.
Nicholas and Elizabeth McElhatten are the owners of King Hardware and Gifts. The husband and wife duo are also the ones behind Mudbug-Be-Gone, a locally made hand soap designed to help clean your crawfish peelin’ hands.
“It’s crawfish season, everyone needs to come grab a battle before you head to a crawfish boil,” says Elizabeth McElhatten.
The Mudbug-Be-Gone bottle reads ‘After you pinch, pull, and suck… you’re gonna want to shake, pump, and lather.’
“It’s a hand soap that we created to take the smell of burning, crawfish, oils, cooking oils, anything like that – it gets it off your hands,” says Nicholas McElhatten.
Mudbug Be Gone is made from pumice and peppermint essential oils exfoliate and revive the dirtiest of hands leaving them cool and clean. Ideal for use after eating crawfish, handling fish, onion, garlic or anything else that particularly smells.
And since it is crawfish season…
Next week a popular festival returns to Shreveport, and the McElhattens’ soap Mudbug-Be-Gone is a must have.
Mudbug Madness 35 is spicing up Shreveport’s Festival Plaza May 24-27. The four-day festival is a great time featuring live music, family fun, and lots of boiled spicy crawfish.
“If you have cuts on your hands- you know what that’s like when you’re eating crawfish; it gets in there and starts burning. This will actually soothe that, and it will also make it where you can use your hands the rest of the day. If you’re a contact lens wearer and you don’t want to touch your eyes after eating crawfish, use this soap and you won’t have that problem,” says Nicholas McElhatten.
MudBug -Be-Gone removes strong cooking odors and spices from your hands. Cooling peppermint soap with essential oils and pumice. Finally, you can touch your contacts after eating crawfish. Great at removing other strong orders and greases from hands.
