Cleans pots, pans, dishes, laundry stains, dirty shoes, car mats, oven surfaces, carpets and more. Full cleansing power with no harsh chemicals or smells.

In this post, we'll explore the various uses of solid dish soap and how to make the most out of this eco-friendly cleaning option. To learn why you should switch to solid dish soap in your home, read more here

Scrub your household dishes, pots, and pans.

Using solid dish soap for dishes is a straightforward process. Wet your sponge or brush and rub it onto the surface of the solid soap. Then, scrub your dishes, pots, and pans until they're clean. Rinse the soap suds off, and you're done!

Solid dish soap is tough on grease, so it's an excellent option for cleaning those hard-to-remove stains. Plus, the lemongrass and orange essential oils make for a refreshing citrus fresh scent. 

Clean inside the oven and on the stove top.

Another excellent use for solid dish soap is cleaning oven doors and stove tops. Simply wet your sponge or scrub brush and rub it onto the soap surface. Then, use the soapy brush to scrub the grease and grime away. Rinse off the suds and dry the surface with a clean cloth. Your oven door and stove top will look brand new!

Remove stains from clothes

Solid dish soap can also help remove stains from clothes. Wet the stained area and rub the soap bar onto it if using a solid stain bar stick. Or if using a scrub brush with the ceramic ramekin solid dish soap set, wet the brush and rub gently onto the surface of the solid dish soap. Let it sit for a few minutes, then rinse it off. If the stain is stubborn, repeat the process until it's gone.

This method is particularly useful for oil-based stains like grease or motor oil. I have used this solid dish soap to remove grape juice stains, macaroni and cheese stains, newborn mustard poop blowout stains, blood stains and more. 

Clean car mats from dirt, grease, and stains

If your car mats are looking a little worse for wear, solid dish soap can help. Wet the mat. Then wet the scrub brush and rub onto the surface of the solid dish soap. Scrub the dirt, crumbs, spills, and stains away. Rinse off the soap suds, and let the mat dry before putting it back in your car. Your mats will be as clean as when you first brought home your new car. 

Solid dish soap is safe for kids but also naturally powerful for cleaning the toughest messes. You need to try it to believe me.

Clean outdoor furniture

Solid dish soap can also be used to clean outdoor furniture. Pretreat the stains and weathered dirt with a soapy scrub brush. Rinse off the suds and let the furniture dry in the sun.

Before and after images below show one customer's experience cleaning her outdoor lawn chairs using the solid dish soap along with a power washer for faster extreme cleaning. Backyard lizards use the chairs for safe shelter so she wanted to use an eco-friendly pet-safe cleaner.

Solid dish soap is the perfect solution for cleaning inside and outside the house because it powerfully cleans but also is kid-safe and pet-safe.

Remove stains from carpet and upholstery

Finally, solid dish soap can help remove stains from carpet and upholstery. Wet the scrub brush and rub onto surface of the solid soap bar. Scrub a small section of the stained carpet first to color-test your carpet. Then scrub a larger area to remove dirt, grime, food stains, and more. Rinse out the soap suds and repeat as necessary.
