I wonder if this mud has a high sulfur content, as the one time that I soaked in a natural mud spa, I had to dispose of my swimsuit and the clothes that I wore later that day since not even the laundry could get the smell out. Despite all of that, I would absolutely soak in the mud again since it felt great!
