Natural Coconut Soap for Cleaning, Laundry and Dishwashing

Natural Coconut Soap for Cleaning, Laundry and Dishwashing Keeping your home clean and tidy is important not only for your comfort, but also for your health. Unfortunately, many household cleaning products are formulated with aggressive chemicals that aren’t good for your health. That is why more and more people are choosing safe household products, such as coconut soap for cleaning, laundry, and dishwashing.

Coconut soap is made by treating coconut oil with lye. But why coconut oil and not any other vegetable oil or even animal fat? The thing is, coconut oil is rich in saturated fatty acids (lauric and myristic), which, when saponified, exhibit excellent detergent properties and lather better than other saponified fats.

As a result, soap made from coconut oil is valued for its ability to lather and cleanse better than regular household soap, even in cold or hard water. By the way, sailors used to use coconut soap bars a lot to wash their clothes and clean the deck because coconut soap lathers well in salty seawater and lasts long.

Of course, most people today don’t have to wash their clothes or dishes in seawater, but hard water is a common issue. While it poses no health threat, hard water makes it hard (pun not intended) for regular soap to lather. This is why coconut soap is still popular. Besides, it has other benefits, even when compared to innovative household cleaning products.

First of all, coconut soap is an all-purpose household cleaner. You can use it for laundry, cleaning various surfaces, washing dishes, and even washing fruit and vegetables, and it will cope with all these tasks perfectly.

Secondly, coconut soap is completely biodegradable because it is made with just three ingredients – coconut oil, lye, and water. This means that the soap is safe for the environment and can be used in houses with a septic system.

Thirdly and lastly, coconut soap doesn’t have a characteristic yellowish colour or slightly unpleasant smell of regular household soap. At the same time, it does not contain synthetic preservatives, fragrances, dyes, or other potentially unsafe ingredients that can endanger the health of your family or pets.

Ukrainian brand Cocos presents a great selection of natural coconut soap bars and liquid soaps for household purposes. The brand’s soap bars are handmade using the cold process and cured for at least six weeks.

As we’ve already mentioned, Cocos offers several kinds of coconut soap for household purposes, so that you can choose the best one for every specific task. For example, coconut soap bars and liquid soaps are extremely versatile. They can be used to wash hands, clean various waterproof surfaces in the house, wash shoes, clothes and various textiles, clean the stove, wash dishes and even fruit and vegetables from the supermarket.

Coconut kitchen soap by Cocos is just as versatile, but it is additionally infused with coffee extract that effectively neutralises various kitchen smells, such as garlic, onion, fish, spices, etc. The soap is very easy to wash off the surfaces and doesn’t leave any streaks or smell.

Finally, coconut laundry soap with ox gall is designed to remove persistent stains (oil, grease, tee, coffee, wine, blood, grass, fruit, etc.). Ox gall acts as a natural stain remover and easily removes stains from almost all kinds of fabric, except from silk and other delicate textiles.
