A pure organic coconut oil hand-made soap that can be used as-is for pre-treating stains, hand washing, or grated to be used as a “powdered” homemade laundry soap.
For dishwashing, sit a bar of organic coconut soap under the flow of water as the sink fills to create bubbles, or make your own detergent with recipe below!
You can also use it for general cleaning around the house by either rubbing a scrubby sponge over the bars of soap, or by dissolving some soap into a spray bottle. It works great for cleaning kitchens and bathrooms!
Grate the bar of organic coconut soap & once grated, you can use it in your washing machine, in the laundry compartment directly, or dissolve it and use it as you would a liquid laundry detergent.
You can also use this soap to wash hands and body to clean grime off; after gardening for instance! But long-term use of pure coconut soap can be drying on skin, which is why we recommend this soap to be used in the laundry.
