Ground Coconut Soap – the Coconuts are from an Organic and Sustainable source, and production in the purest form made simply with Organic Coconut Oil, Lye and Water. No fragrance, no added enzymes, no phosphates, fillers, acids and no sodium lauryl. Completely biodegradable, eco friendly, and dissolves so easily even in just warm water making it the ideal choice for cleansing, laundry & hand washing.
First blend with hot water and stir to dissolve fully. If using a washing machine, pour the mix into the agitator, or otherwise add it to the washing water.
Or blend 2 cups sodium carbonate (washing soda), 1.5 cups fine salt, 2 cups sodium bicarbonate (bicarb) and 1.5 cups ground coconut Soap, add essential oils to the wash as required. I love citrus essential oils or lavender for linen and towels or Tea Tree and citrus oils for smelly sport socks.
Mix with very hot water and stir to dissolve fully. If using a washing machine, pour the mix into the agitator, or otherwise add it to the washing water.
Coconut Soap is very effective and yet low in suds as it does not contain sodium lauryl sulphate, which is the chemical added to commercial detergents to produce suds. It can therefore be used in front loaders, but use sparingly until you are confident on how much to use in your front loader. Use in front loaders at your own discretion. If in doubt, or you are concerned you will violate machine warranty, then probably best to use an alternative product.
It is advisable to wash with commercial detergents every 10th wash as modern washing machines require the detergents in commercial cleaners to remove any soap residue.
