The Clean Plate Club Dish Soap
With this fabulous dish soap bar, you can get rid of that liquid dish soap under the sink or on the counter! Made in a three-phase and twice-cured process, this soap lasts. Of course, there is nothing toxic in this recipe of olive oil/Castile, washing soda and lavender essential oil--simply love and old-fashioned goodness. I think of my Grandmother Hopkins when I make and use these bars with a dish cloth because when she held any kind of dish cloth, wash cloth and soap in her hands, she was a scrub machine extraordinaire--whether it was a pot in front of her, or more likely a kid in a bathtub (that would be me, one of my siblings or cousins). She could get anything clean with her soap, rough cloth and scrubbing. I'm so grateful that my freckles didn't come off at bath time. And the pots and pans were spotless!
Using a dish soap bar pretty much requires that one use a dish cloth, sponge or scrub brush since the soap is not a liquid and doesn't make oodles and oodles of bubbles for your dishes to soak in. What folks don't always know is that bubbles were created by clever marketers and manufacturers to make us think that bubbles equal clean. That just isn't the case. Thankfully, The Clean Plate Club bar naturally soaps up--just not in the quantities you may be accustomed to with a liquid soap detergent.
The lavender essential oil is added not only for the wonderful scent, but also for anti-bacterial properties. The washing soda and castile do the tough stuff of cleaning.
All in all, I can't wait for you to try it. You're going to love it.
