TIPS FOR DISHWASHING
This block cleans oily and greasy items efficiently! Use with a luffa sponge for a lovely lather on your plates, pots and pans. Don’t forget to switch off the tap while soaping up! You can also use this to give your sink or surfaces a good scrub down with our kitchen scrubbie brush with hard bristles.
Be mindful not to excessively use rough pot brushes or scrubbies on the block as it will wear it down at a quicker rate.
TIPS FOR LAUNDRY
Perfect for handwashing delicates. To use in washing machines, grate this block and mix with an equal part of washing soda.
TIPS FOR STAIN STICK USAGE
Wet the stained item and rub onto the stain. Wash as per usual. Spot test delicates.
Why solid soaps and not liquid?
Each soap block can replace at least 1-2 bottles of dishwashing liquid, depending on your usage. It is more efficient to produce, ship and store solid soaps compared to liquid detergents due to the fact that liquid soap is heavier to carry and not efficiently packaged. Bar soap is always stackable and maximises the volume of cartons during transportation.
The difference between soap and detergents
Detergents are made from man made or synthetic derivatives, such as surfactants, brighteners or perfumes.
Soaps are made from natural ingredients such as oils and fats. Sometimes, a blend of oils is used for each oil's unique properties. Different oils have different qualities and benefits. This multi-purpose dishwashing soap is made with coconut oil for coconut oil's cleansing and bubbly properties! Expect nice suds and bubbles with this product! During the process of saponification (the process of making into soap), glycerin naturally occurs. This is great for your skin! The natural glycerin is a moisturiser.
