Zote Soap Review & Uses For Laundry, Stains & Cleaning
(Silver Spring, MD)
Sat shared her Zote soap review and uses. This is a laundry soap bar which is very popular in Mexico, but can also be found many places here in the United States, typically in the laundry products aisle.
This laundry bar soap can be found at some ethnic groceries, online, Lehman's catalog, and sometimes regular supermarkets.
I pay $1.39 per bar, but some other places you will pay more.
Many of the products you can clean your home with are highly toxic, but this is not.
The bars can be used to wash dishes, scrub bathtubs, bath fixtures, anything.
They do not cause damage and dissolves body scum, grease, and dirt away.
Use it as a laundry stain remover - wet the clothing, scrub, rubbing the material against itself, rinse and white sport socks release all that dirt that builds up after detergent washing that does not get them clean.
Use on diapers, white clothes, many types of stains will be removed by these bars.
There is no end to the cleaners you can make with this product.
I boil the soap down to make hand soap, for dishes and the bath, just rub the bar on
your cloth to use or make a solution by letting the bar sit in water for an hour or so and melt, shake well-then remove the bar and you have soap solution.
This is the cheap safe way to clean your house and the bar smells clean.
I cut the bar into pieces for different areas of the house since you get a 400gm bar which is 14 ounces, a large bar of soap.
You can eliminate a whole lot of cleaners using this basic addition to your supplies.
Sometimes our grandmothers knew best.
Thanks for sharing your review and uses for this laundry bar soap.
You can use this product as mentioned for things beside laundry, but do be aware that it contains optical brighteners.
Therefore, the FAQ page for the Zote website (***update: this appears to no longer be available *** end update) explained that many people in Mexico use it for washing dishes, even though it is not specifically formulated for that purpose.
Further, the page explained you can bathe with this soap too, although the soap is specifically designed for clothing care, but to check with a dermatologist first if you've got sensitive skin.
Zote Laundry Flakes: More Convenient For Making Laundry Soap
by Rochelle aka laundry diva
I've found at Wal-Mart it carries Zote has flakes already, instead of having to shred it yourself when making homemade laundry soap. Saves lots of time.
I don't have any problems with it dissolving.
Every box of flakes = 2 bars of soap.
It's about 75 cents more than 2 whole bars.
Thanks Rochelle, I've seen this lately in Walmart myself.
I think this is a great convenience since shredding or making soap flakes from a bar can be a pain, and some people have even complained that it has caused their food processor (if they choose to shred it that way) to make all their food taste soapy. Yuck!
I'd love to hear from even more people that have used it to say if this is worth the extra cost when making your own liquid or powder detergents.
