How to use a soap bar to wash the dishes

A simple soap was historically used for all body, hair, clothese and household cleaning.

A soap bar produces less suds than detergent, but it cleans just as well in most water. Some hard water may be less effective, though we have tips below  Detergent is different to soap as it is made from synthetically-produced surfactants (even the natural ones) and has additives to make it stay liquid.

Rub the brush gently on the bar to pick up some soap, immerse dishes and cutlery in a sink of hot water, scrub with the brush.  You can also use a dish cloth to wipe off grease.

Instead of the pot brush you could use any natural brush strong enough to scratch off the soap, or our Agave wash cloth.  The Redecker pot brush may be too harsh for some non stick pans, although is used by Biome founder, Tracey, on Neoflam with light pressure and is ok.  For non stick pans you can also use any coconut fibre scourer.

Rinse dishes in another tub of clean water or with a little vinegar added.

For hard water, add a little bi carb soda to the dish water as it softens the water and helps clean faster. Hard water contains insoluble minerals such as magnesium and calcium which form a soap 'scum' when mixed with fats.

Remember to always use a metal sink strainer on your plug hole to stop food scraps going down the drain.  When draining your washing up water, quickly slip the strainer in place after removing the plug. 

Some people worry that soap may clog drains, but people have used soap for decades without this issue.  For a natural drain cleaner use bi carb, salt and vinegar followed by a kettle of boiling water.

Great combo!

The pot brush works great at scrubbing even the really grubby pots. The soap works surprisingly well considering is made from 100% olive oil, and is a great waste free alternative to liquid soap. The soap dish works well at containing the soap. Great little comobo!

Looks nice sitting on the bench with my other brushes. Wooden holder is very nice and solid. Soap does a good job

Such a quality brish

Even though it’s on the small side it is definitely a quality product that works well. It makes dish washing enjoyable and the beautiful soap stand makes it look stunning too.
