Tips for use:
To generate a good sud use in very hot water. Wear gloves to swish the soap while the bowl/sink is filling, or use an old fashioned soap saver/cage.
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 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.
*Keep your soap out of direct sunlight and on a well-draining soap dish or hang your soap saver/cage 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.
**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.
