What? A dish cake ?
Not sure what we mean by "dish cake"?
Most people use liquid dishwashing detergents, sponges, brushes or dishwashers to clean their kitchen utensils: Not a cake!
Obviously, we're not talking about washing up with a cake. If it's a solid dishwashing soap. And what's more, an ultra-efficient all-purpose solid degreaser!
Ecological benefits of solid dish soap
The number of plastic bottles of single-use liquid dish soap a family uses varies according to consumption habits. Although the plastic bottles used for dishwashing soap products can generally be recycled to reduce their impact on the environment, the fact remains that their useful life is very short and they can easily be avoided.
Therefore, solid dishwashing soaps do not require plastic packaging or plastic bottles, which considerably reduces the amount of plastic waste generated. This helps preserve the environment by reducing plastic pollution and the consumption of natural resources.
We're talking about 4 to 6 plastic bottles a year for a family of 4.
Natural, biodegradable composition
Our dishwashing cakes are made from natural ingredients and avoid the use of harmful chemical additives, colorants and fragrances. They are biodegradable, making them more environmentally friendly than some liquid dishwashing soaps.
Transport and storage
Even the environmental balance between bulk liquid soap and dishwashing cakes favors the latter. Why is this? Because liquid soap is more or less 80-90% water, takes up a lot of storage space and is expensive (in terms of carbon footprint) to transport to points of sale. Cake, on the other hand, is compact, light and takes up little space... You don't transport and store water!
Solid dishwashing soaps are compact, lightweight and easy to transport, making them ideal for use when traveling or camping. They also take up less space when stored at home.
Economic benefits of solid dishwashing soap
Solid dish soaps tend to last longer than liquids, as they don't disperse as easily. So a small amount of solid soap can last longer, saving you money in the long run.
As well as being available in a reusable container, you can also buy them without a container (refill) or make them from our dish cake making kit, which will be even more economical for you.
To use solid dish soap, follow these steps:
- Prepare your sink by putting the stopper in so you don't lose your rinse water.
- Place dishes that need soaking at the bottom of your sink.
- Wet your sponge, washing-up brush or any other cleaning utensil you normally use.
- Rub your sponge or brush over the solid dish soap to work it into a lather.
- Start washing your dishes by scrubbing the surface of each item to remove food residues and dirt. Be sure to cover all areas and scrub thoroughly.
- Rinse your washed dishes over those to be soaked.
- Continue using your brush or similar until all the soap is gone.
- If necessary, rinse your sponge or brush to remove accumulated residue.
- Repeat steps 1 to 8 as necessary, ending with the dishes that have been soaked in your rinse water.
- Dry the dishes with a clean cloth or let them air-dry.
It's simple, economical and environmentally friendly!
But that's not all.

- Removing greasy stains from fabrics
- Washing baths and showers
