How to Use Solid Dish Soap - A Step by Step Guide

Most of us are used to washing our dishes with liquid detergent, so a solid dish soap can seem confusing at first. Like, how do you use this thing? Luckily, it's very easy once you get the hang of it. We'll show you how in this blog post.

Using solid dish soap in a sink full of dishes

  • Fill the sink with fast-flowing hot water
  • Put the bar under the tap several times to get the water sudsy or swish with our Soap Shaker
  • If dishes are lightly soiled, use the sudsy water to clean them with a scourer or kitchen brush
  • If the dishes are quite soiled (dried-on food, grease etc), follow the instructions below as well

Using solid dish soap on individual items

  • Rub a wet scourer or kitchen brush directly onto Dish Magic
  • Wash your dishes directly with the foam
  • Rinse off and drain to dry

Always allow Dish Magic to dry between uses. We like to rest ours on a wooden soap dish.

Does solid dish soap bubble like liquid detergent?

Our solid dish soap, Dish Magic, doesn’t foam in the same way typical washing-up liquid does because it’s all-natural with no synthetic surfactants but it will clean just as well! Synthetic surfactants give you lots of bubbles, whereas solid dish soaps won't. They will make quick work of the grease, though. 

Dish Magic is biodegradable, plant-based, plastic-free and has minimal ingredients. This is real soap; not just a solid synthetic. Zero waste and zero regrets.

Can you use solid dish soap for other things?

We call Dish Magic multi-purpose because it can be used for so many more things than just your dishes.

  • Fruit and veggie wash
  • Counter-top and surface cleaner
  • Shines up stainless steel sinks
  • We’ve even used it as a laundry stain soap! 

What else?

  • The most unique, effective and wonderfully smelling solid dish soap ever. Period.
  • Available as a bar or in a gift set complete with soap dish and natural scourer
  • Always vegan, cruelty-free, palm oil-free, plastic-free and biodegradable

Each solid dish soap bar weighs around 115g and lasts around 3-4 months with daily use. We recommend using washing-up gloves to protect your hands and nails due to the grease-cutting properties of Dish Magic.
