This soap works great, suds up nicely, and will hopefully last a while. I'm so glad I no longer need to buy plastic bottles of soap. Very happy with the company, and shipping. Will be ordering again. Thank you!
Absolutely love this. Lasts a while too
I am a new user of the Dish Block, and I love it: it is easy to use, it cleans well, and it replaces many bottles of liquid dish soap. I fill one of my sink basins with water and then place dirty items in the water to soak to loosen debris. I remove an item, scrub it, and then fill the other sink basin with the soaped-up items, rinsing the items in bulk.
We wanted to try and get rid of the plastic bottles of soap in our kitchen, but nothing seemed to fit the bill good enough to ditch the plastic, until this bar! We love it, it soaps up really well, cuts through grease and grim and has lasted FOREVER! my husband bought two bars, back on 8/22 not realizing how long they last. We still have more than half a bar of the first one and we use it everyday for a lot of dishes. Love, love, love it and we'll never go back to any other kind of dish soap.
Works great! I have noticed that I use less water (and definitely less soap) because I can't drip a bunch of liquid soap into the sink before filling it up with hot water and pretending like I'm "letting the dishes soak."
Now I just wet the brush and get soap, use a little water to get the dishes wet and rinse after. The soap works great at getting them clean and it rinses off easily.
The block can feel like a lot to manage at first, it is a little too big for a normal soap holder (you definitely need one that's flatter, wide and rectangle.) After getting wet a few times, it eventually stuck down to my soap dish. It is very big and occasionally has to be pushed back up on the sink ledge so it doesn't fall off. That happened once or twice. Seems like it would be best on a wooden slatted soap dish, but one that is big enough. Since I try to buy everything in person, I plan on tracing the block on a piece of paper and taking that to find the right dish for it. Probably at Goodwill.
Seems like it will last for a couple years, at least one for sure. I've had mine about three weeks and with a natural wood handled dish brush and you can tell it is being used, but it doesn't seem to have gotten any smaller.
I just couldn't bring myself to buy another plastic container of dish soap. I switched to a shampoo bar awhile back and I eventually got my partner on board and we switched to bar soaps everywhere but the kitchen. I soak orange peels in vinegar and that is our all purpose cleaner so no plastic there. The only source of plastic (other than food consumption which is a constant battle full of bulk jars, a drawer full of paper bags I'm planning to reuse, ect.) has been laundry and dish soap containers. I considered dissolving a bar of castile soap, but the texture was confusing. I have purchased bulk soap from a zero waste market in a glass soap dispenser they had for sale but my partner didn't find the soap bubbly enough and the dispenser launched the soap everywh...
