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.

A convert

Recently started using this brush and soap combo in the kitchen. I am shocked at how well it works! Our household will never use a sponge or liquid soap ever again. Highly recommend

Good bundle

Great bundle for starting out. The wooden soap holder does leak a little colour like stated but as it is the same colour wood as my kitchen this didn't bother me. watch out if you have it on white grout tho.
the brush is brilliant I have been using it for about 2 months and no problem, just give it a flick dry after using it to help it dry and last longer. I am still getting used to Castile soap, I find it leaves a bit of an oily residue on my dishes so
I have had to change my washing procedure but worth the extra effort to help out the enviroment.

Love so much

Brush is perfect for giving your steel pots and pans a good hard scrub. The soap has completely converted me. Finally my hands aren’t cracked and dry from harsh dish washing liquids. The soap dish is beautiful - keep it off the bench top though as it does leech a little colour. Perfect for popping on the drainer though.
