Made with all-natural, non-toxic ingredients, this zero waste alternative to dishwashing liquid will leave your dishes sparkling clean and streak free. With citrus essential oils for grease-cutting power.
Most dishwash bar soaps contain palm oil, or they have no suds and leave your dishes streaky. It took us at least a year to tweak this formula, so we could bring you a product we were happy with.
Check out the videos below to see it in action. (view full-screen for better view)
Remember to use with very 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 2 – a NZ made Industrial model Dish Swish AND The Dish Swish (original)
You can read more about using and getting the most from your dish soap here.
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.
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, and falls flat quickly, you may have hard water. The dishes will still get clean, but results may not be as effective as using a traditional detergent.
*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.
