Castile Dish Soap

(14 customer reviews)

$ 4.00$ 13.50

Made with all-natural, non-toxic ingredients, this zero waste alternative to dishwashing liquid will leave your dishes sparkling clean and streak free.

Most dishwash bar soaps contain palm oil, or they have no suds and leave your dishes streaky. It has taken us at least a year to tweak this formula, so we can bring you a product we are happy with.     With citrus essential oils for grease-cutting power.

Check out the videos below to see it in action.  (view full-screen for better view)

Remember to use with hot water. We find using a bowl inside the sink, not only saves water, but allows for better suds. Wear gloves to swish the soap while the bowl/sink is filling, or use an old fashioned soap shaker (cage).  We now stock – The Dish Swish – a stainless steel soap shaker.

The soap can also be used as a general kitchen cleaner – simply wipe soap on to a wet cloth and use to clean/wipe down surfaces.

You can also create a liquid surface cleaner/dishwash by grating an entire soap bar and adding it to 250-500ml of boiling water, stir until dissolved and let it sit for 24 hours, stirring occasionally.  At 500ml dilution it  will be runny, but concentrated. This “liquid”  has a short shelf life so use within a month.

Available in singles, or more economical 3-packs.

Our circular soaps weigh 60-80g each –  dimensions (mm): approx 70 diameter, 30 deep

Our rectangle soaps weigh 90-100g each – dimensions (mm): 80 long x 58 wide x 25 deep

One soap should last 2-3 weeks (washing up twice a day)

Ingredients:  Olive oil, water, potato, lye (none left in final product), orange & lemon essential oils.

*Please note, the volume of bubbles may vary depending on the hardness of your water supply.  If you find your water isn’t creating a lot of bubbles, it’s purely visual, the soap will still do a good job of cleaning your dishes.  🙂

*Keep your soap out of direct sun and on a well draining soap dish or hang your shaker up.  If you allow your soap to dry between uses it will last longer.  leaving the wet soap in the hot sun will cause it to melt.

    Started using this soap as an alternative to buying plastic bottles and LOVE IT!! I suffer with eczema and use to get a rash under my wedding rings, but since having this in my kitchen my eczema has gone and so has my rash under my rings. Ohh and the planet loves me for it too 🙂

    Absolute game-changer.
    I cannot recommend this Dishsoap highly enough – works just as well as Dawn or Sunlight but without the myriad of unnecessary chemicals and plastic waste. Great for dishes and also surface cleaning.
    Now we won’t use anything else, thanks Lisa!

    This dish soap is a game changer. I use it without a soap cage and just swoosh it under the tap. It bubbles up beautifully and my dishes are lovely and sparkly. No more plastic bottles for us!

    I have been using this dish soap for around 6 months now and absolutely love it. It doesn’t bubble much but don’t let that fool you, my dishes come out perfectly. I just hold it under the running water as I’m filling up the sink, so easy!

      Thanks Natalie – how many bubbles you get depends on your water and technique, but as you say, it works well regardless of how many bubbles you get. 🙂

    Love this! Cleans really well & love that I can wash my dishes without using a plastic bottle. Been using for about a year now. I use a mini fryer basket to swish it around.

    This is amazing! I have given some to most of my family as I love it. It took me a bit to get over the no bubbles but now I’m totally sold on it. Thanks for another stellar product ❤️

    We have been using the Castile dish soap bars for a few months now and we won’t be turning back! They are fantastic. Easy to use, last a long time, and dirty dishes come up sparkling clean 🙂

    First time using this soap today for my dishes. I absolutely love how clean and sparkling my dishes are. Actually, they have never been this shiny before. Thank you Lisa for a wonderful product. Excuse me, I have to find more dishes to wash. It’s that enjoyable! 😊

    This dish soap is awesome its all i use now, it cleans my dishes no problem at all and leaves them squeaky clean. I have also melted one down and put in a spray bottle and use it to replace my spray and wipe and it cleans perfectly. highly recommend this product.

  12. Clare-Louise Gerbault (verified owner)

    I love the feel and aroma of this soap. And it leaves my dishes clean and non greasy.

  13. kerri jopp (verified owner)

    Pleasantly surprised at how well this dish soap worked and how long it lasted. Very satisfying no plastic bottles or chemicals left on the dishes

  14. Alisha Martin (verified owner)

    I am blown away by this product Lisa! I used it for the first time today. As I don’t have a Soap Saver as yet (still on the hunt), I just used hot water, gloves and swished the bar around to create bubbles. Cleaned my dirty dishes in no time. I love how it’s all natural and how there is no residue left over like my other detergent. I am going to share this with friends and hope that they are amazed like I am! 🙂
