Degreasing Dishwashing Liquid

Featuring the original black soap recipe, this dishwashing liquid will effectively degrease, clean and shine your pots, plates and cutlery - while staying ultra gentle on your hands. We recommend the use of essential oils if you are not used to the natural scent of black soap! Our recipe calls for Lemon, but you can replace it with any Citrus or Mint oils. For sensitive hands, we recommend to swap lemon for Lavender, or to skip any scent altogether.
