Tips For Using A Solid Dish Washing Bar

Updated: Jan 13, 2021

Every day around 8 million pieces of plastic end up in the ocean [1] - EVERY DAY! But there is hope, solid dish washing bars cut out the need for some of this plastic. They are usually more cost-effective too, our chunky 151g gram bar is equivalent to 3 300ml bottles and will last approx 5-6 months.

Because the dish washing experience is very different to liquid washing up liquid, we put together some helpful tips for using a Solid Dish Washing Bar.

The Four Stage of Transition:

  1. Hold up, this doesn't bubble like my usual washing up liquid. I miss the bubbles!

  2. This is weird and taking some getting used to but it is cleaning dishes really well.

  3. I'm kinda getting the hang of this now, I've perfected my technique.

  4. I think prefer this to liquid washing up liquid - I'm converted!

Tip 1:

Invest in a soap dish or tray to store your new Dish Soap Bar. Not only will this help keep your bar dry and last longer, it will also prevent a soggy bottom and stop is slipping all over the place.

Tip 2:

Use inconjunction with a brush for dirty dishes. Rub the brush straight into the bar, wet the dish and scrub away. We recommend leaving very grimy pots and pans to soak in hot water before cleaning.

Tip 3:

Place the Dish Soap in the sink and fill with hot water. This won't cause any bubbles but instead, the water will go cloudy. Use a plastic-free cloth to clean glasses and dishes which aren't heavily soiled. If you notice any residue on dishes from the Dish Soap, rinse with water before leaving to dry.
