What can you do with our soap?

Ways you can use our soap

Wash your body

Our soap can be applied everywhere on the body. You don’t have to use a lot of soap for it to work. The best way to use it is to take a wet washcloth and to rub it 10 times on the soap (that should be sufficient to wash your entire body). If you prefer using liquid soap, you can dilute our soap with water and put it in an empty jar/bottle.

To do so, you need to heat water, gradually add it to the soap whilst stirring and continue to do so until obtaining the “shower gel” texture.

Don’t worry if you don’t see foam when using our soap, it’s perfectly normal. Hygiene has nothing to do with foam, it is a myth used by the cosmetic industry to better sell their products.

You can wash your hair.

Use a washcloth to wash your hair. Rub the washcloth over the soap ten times, then rub the top and  sides of your head three times in a circular movement. This will give you enough soap to perfectly wash your hair.

Careful: this is not a mass-produced shampoo, so consider rinsing your hair with an abundance of water to ensure it is not too greasy.

About that: if you’ve always used industrial soap you should be aware that your hair might seem a bit greasy for a few weeks. This is a normal reaction, because your hair has gotten used to the silicone in your regular shampoo. It therefore takes a little while before your hair gets used to the absence of silicone and starts being capable of absorbing the glycerine.

 If you have long hair, here is some advice from Ines, one of our loyal customers: “I pour some soap in my hands and I rub it on my scalp with the top of my fingers. Then I rinse my hair thoroughly with lukewarm water. I finish with a cold-water rinse, this way the cuticles close nice and tightly, avoiding the hair getting greasy too quickly. My hair is nourished, shiny, soft and my curls are beautiful”.

 

Washing your pet

You can  use our soap to wash your dog or your cat. Just be careful not to put soap in their eyes and be sure to rinse properly with clear water.

Laundry.

Heat 1 liter of water and add 30 g of our grated soap (or flakes) and 1 tablespoon of baking soda. You can add essential oils to your mixture if you want a particular fragrance. Take a bottle of empty detergent and add your mix. Let the mix rest for 24 hours or one night. And that’s it! Just use the same quantities as your usual laundry detergent. Don’t forget to shake your mix before every wash.

 If your water is particularly calcareous, you can add white vinegar as a softener. And we recommend, about once a month, to clean your machine by launching a vacuum program with soda crystals.

Wash your dishes

It's nearly the same process as making the laundry detergent. Heat 1 liter of water and add 20 g of our grated soap (or flakes), 1 teaspoon of baking soda and 1 tablespoon of soda crystals once the mixture has cooled down a bit. Take a bottle of empty washing up liquid pour in your mixture. And that’s it! Just use the same quantities you would normally use.

Moisturize  your skin after removing your make-up.

In the evening, after removing your make-up, you can use our soap to finish up. You will get a clean, hydrated skin and get rid of all its impurities. Your complexion will get brighter in no time.

Create your own liquid soap for cleaning dishes or washing your hands

Heat 250 ml of water and add 50 g of our soap.Mix it all together. Take an empty soap dispenser and then add your mixture. Easy ! Just use the same amounts you’d use with your usual dishwashing liquid.

You can shave with it.

Our soap contains enough grease to be used as shaving balm or shaving foam. Simply moisten your soap bar a little, then apply it to the area to be shaved. Shave, rinse, and dab with a towel. Thanks to our natural soap, you won’t be needing any cologne.

Clean the floor

Heat 1 liter of water and add 30 g of our soap, 1 tablespoon of baking soda and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar once the mixture has cooled down. Take an empty bottle and add your mix. Put 1 dose of your mix in 1 liter of water and then wash your floor.

You don’t have to use vinegar if you don’t like the smell of it, removing it from the mixture won’t affect it’s efficiency.

  

Preventing moths and mites
