Blocks of soap are all the new rage and for good reason. They’re eco-friendly, smell amazing and are cute as fuck. There are some great ones you can find out there on Etsy or at No Tox Life. I got mine in Provence and absolutely love it.
This and this dish washing block on Etsy have great reviews.
When you have just a few…
Using your scrubby or dish cloth, simply rub it onto the block of soap and then clean away! This works well when you’re cleaning one or two pans and not filling up a whole sink of water.
I also rub the block right onto dirty pans, getting them easily clean!
When you’ve a whole sink full…
Set your block in the middle of your sink and let the water run over it. It doesn’t need to stay long and your sink will fill will small bubbles. No, it won’t be as bubbly as your regular dish soap, but it will be great.
Note: dish washing blocks feel a little different than dish soap. My Baba usually had some powered washing detergent at her sink so the feeling of the soapy water brings back memories of being in her kitchen. It’s a little more soapy and moisturizing. Essentially, you feel the soap in the water more than you do with regular dishwashing detergent.
That’s it! Enjoy your dish washing block and your zero waste kitchen.
