Used to love these - so much better than Daim/Dime bars.

Mind you, not sure how my hampsteads would get on with them today :D

That was the stuff that was called 'Izal'.
It was about as useful as a chocolate teapot even though it never ended up, the same colour..

An ever present through my entire school life as I remember.

Who the hell thought this a good idea - let's use something that doesn't absorb anything as a bog roll.

Still see a couple of these in shops but can’t remember the last time I saw Knight’s soap. It was made at the factory in West Silvertown, not far from the Thames Ironworks. God, what a stink it made when you were downwind.

Ah, John Knight's, the old meat rendering plant. It moved to Dagenham in 2017.
As you say, if the wind was in the right (or wrong!) direction, you could smell it all over Newham..
Mind you, some of the smells might also have been coming from the fairly nearby, 'Ziffs', slaughterhouse, which eventually closed in 1997.
