I have tried this type of clay before and loved it. Never bought it from this site though. Hopefully, I do not get disappointed. It will be here on Thursday, I'll let you know if it is a good source.

I've tried talcum powder when I was really desperate. I hated it...way too soft and silky, and it had this...perfumed flavor that I couldn't stand even thought I got the unscented kind.

And of course, DE didn't work out as planned.

We'll see what happens with the white dirt.

I've been without my white dirt for going on 3 weeks now and today I'm going home to get my white dirt . I'm so excited I have cravings every now and then but it goes away quickly . Never thought about eating anything else I've just been patiently waiting to get my clay from home . I bet it's so earthy and sour . I bought clay from Wanda that's my favorite kind of white dirt.

Did you guys know Leslie had red dirt in stock? But it's sold out now . Her website confuses me . It says sold old for 1 bag but if you wanted 2 bags it's not sold out or if you want 1 bag of red dirt & 1 bag of white dirt it's not sold out . Just go to her website : georgiawhitedirt . Com

Maybe she has them pre-bundled into sets.
So let's say she had 20 single bags, then 20 sets of 2, then 20 sets of one red and one white, etc., so you can't order a single bag of red dirt anymore because all of those are gone. But you can buy one of the sets containing red dirt because those have been set aside already.

That's the only way I can see it making any sense.

I see that Leslie isn't offering international shipping anymore. I wonder why not? So disappointing because I would have ordered from her and had been waiting for the red clay.

Thanks CCL.
It would be a dream come true to find that it is true that we have clay on this island, and if trucks left it on the roadside! I would hire them to drop it at my house lol and store it in my spare room.

Ikr. I've been thinking about doing that but it would attract a lot of attention and questions since there's nothing else being done with it. Gosh its really temptin tho. Lovely brownish orange color with creamy earthy taste.

On her facebook page, Leslie said she might start doing international shipping again at the end of August. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Georgiawhitedi...

So I would just keep an eye on the page and see what's she's gonna do with that.

It might also help to post and say that you want to make an order.

That is just how I imagined our clay would be, if I ever found it.

When I say yellow, yes I mean the molded MTN ones and the unmolded from Pretoria, in marabastaad nd CBD which are also yellow and the Red from here as well. I havnt seen the brown or white clay around here. I eat white clay when I'm home in the F.S nd I eat the dark brown clay I eat when I'm in the West Rand visiting my aunt.

Does anyone know long it typically take for Mutt and Jeff to deliver?

I'm also very curious to hear how Kellzgirl's batch was.
