About the soap:
This listing is for Battle Green’s multi-purpose organic solid dish soap bar (and the soap dish, detailed below) which was featured in our Sept/Oct 2020 Book Fairy Box. They make each bar using the cold process method, with high quality plant-based and natural ingredients. Non-toxic, biodegradable, free from palm oil, SLS/SLES and synthetic fragrances, and – as always – vegan and cruelty free.
How to use it: Replace the traditional liquid dish soap in plastic bottles with this handy block! Keep the bar next to your kitchen sink on a soap rack or an old saucer. Fill your sink with water, rub a dish cloth or brush over the bar to coat with your desired amount. Clean your dishes with the bubbles as usual and rinse well.
For stains: wet the stain and wet the end of the bar. Rub the stain with the bar and then add the item to your laundry load and wash as usual.
You can also use the bar to clean surfaces: Rub a warm, wet sponge or cloth over the bar and wipe surfaces, before rinsing away with water.
The size is approx 64g, and 6cm x 2.5cm – perfect for travelling and camping trips! The bar comes wrapped in compostable paper.
Organic coconut oil: Coconut oil makes a wonderful dish soap base, with big, rich bubbles.
White Kaolin clay: Battle Green uses UK-mined white clay to add a little scrubbiness to the bar!
Eucalyptus essential oil: A fresh, clean scent, eucalyptus essential oil is deodorising and effective at cutting through grease.
Lemongrass essential oil: A bright, uplifting scent, lemongrass essential oil is effective in inhibiting and killing off bacteria.
Sodium lactate: Vegan friendly and derived from the natural fermentation of sugars found in corn and beets, sodium lactate helps create a hard, long-lasting bar. It also has anti-bacterial properties.
All of our goodies are sent out in plastic free, recyclable (and often recycled) packaging.
About the dish:
This lovely wooden soap dishes is made from sustainable hemu wood and is the perfect size for your Battle Green dish soap to help keep it dry between uses and lasting longer.
Each dish has raised ridges so that your soap can effectively dry out and drain off between uses, helping to prolong the life of each bar. Because natural soap contains no preservative, a high-ridged draining soap dish is essential to ensure that it doesn’t sit in any water.
Please note that these natural wooden soap dishes are made from wood, so they will need periodical cleaning to ensure that they don’t discolour with regular use. Your soap dish will benefit from occasional oiling with a light oil such as olive oil or sunflower oil to prolong its life and keep it healthy. Make sure that your soap dish doesn’t sit in any water or it will start to absorb it!
These Bean & Boy Wooden Soap Dishes have been ethically-sourced and made from sustainable hemu wood, which is obtained from the Indian Guger Tree. Each dish measures approximately 10 x 6cm.
