The answers to today’s Strands, game #56, are…

  • SOAP

  • My rating: Moderate
  • My score: Perfect

This probably qualifies as a medium-difficulty Strands puzzle, because a couple of the words are quite long and therefore harder to find, and a couple of the shorter ones have uncommon letters of spelling. That can sometimes help, but not in this case – for me at least.

I got started easily enough, uncovering SHAMPOO and realizing that the theme clue – Coming clean – was going to mean finding personal cleaning items. I didn’t quite have the shower element yet, though, especially once I found RAZOR; I’m sure plenty of people shave in the shower, but I’m not one of them, so I didn’t yet make that connection. The trouble after that was simply that I couldn’t find more words. I spotted WASH, but it didn’t turn blue, and it took me ages to realize it continued into WASHCLOTH. SOAP was backwards, so to speak, so that took me a while too. And CONDITIONER foxed me right until I’d discovered everything else. Maybe it was just a bad day for me.

How did you do today? Send me an email and let me know.
