Black soap has been produced for over 110 years according to the traditional soapmaking method and has been used for generations in France. Today, it is the best biodegradable alternative to a general household cleaner.
In the house
– Cleans, disinfects, removes stains, nourishes and gives a shine to all types of flooring (including tiles, terracotta, ceramics, laminate, marble and wood), boats and windows. Just add 3 to 4 tablespoons to a bucket of water.
– Cuts through grease; removes burnt-on, hardened food deposits from cookers, hobs, braais, extractors and ovens; and effectively cleans worktops, sinks, leather surfaces and car exteriors. Apply a few drops to a sponge, cloth or brush, wipe the surface and then rinse off the soap with water.
In the garden
– Controls greenfly, scale insects, red spider andmites on rosebushes, ornamental plants, fruit trees and vegetables. Prepare a mixture of 3 tablespoons black soap per litre of water and spray onto plants.
For pets and animal
– Black soap serves as a gentle wash that not only adds shine to the coats of dogs, horses and other animals, but also has anti- parasitic qualities and prevents allergies and rashes such as those caused by eczema and dermatitis.
– In France, organic cattle and goat farmers use black soap daily to clean udders and teats before milking.
For DIY and artwork
– Cleans and lengthens the lifespan of paintbrushes.
– Removes paint stains from fabrics.
