The DISH BLOCK® dishwashing soap is a cleaning powerhouse with a rich, sudsy lather. Cuts stubborn grime and grease on dishes, pots and pans. With added aloe vera to be gentle on your hands. Completely unscented and fragrance-free.
You can even use it for cleaning-duty all over your home. Take stains out of laundry, take labels off of jars, spot clean your carpet, use it to wipe down counters... it's a truly multipurpose product.
Each 6 oz bar of dish soap will last a LONG time. Time estimates vary based on household size and number of dishes washed.
Recommended: Pair with an Eco-Sponge for plates, bowls and cups, and a Moso Bamboo Soap Shelf to keep it drained and dry between uses. Or use with the Casa Agave™ dish brush, long handle, short handleor pot scrubber.
How to use: Scrape dishes to remove excess grease and food. Wet sponge, for plates, bowls and cups, and rub DISH BLOCK® soap to create suds. (Repeat as needed to refresh suds.) Wash items and rinse well. Works in warm or cold water. We prefer warm water for best results. For pots and pans, use a scrubber or scourer.
Please note: using a strong scourer or scrubber exclusively on the block will wear it down faster than using a soft sponge or cloth.
For extra sparkly dishes: wipe dishes dry with a cloth.
Pro kitchen tip: Use the same DISH BLOCK® suds to clean your sink when it gets dirty, this can be used on porcelain, stainless, stone and glass sinks safely. We have seen customers use it to clean dirty & stained oven top surfaces as well!
(Due to the handmade and hand cut nature of this product, there will be imperfections, chips, cracks, fissures and roughness on the bar and rough variations on the surface, this is normal.)
Packaging: Over the next few months we will be phasing out of band packaging into new box packaging to save shipping space and reduce excess shipping packing materials. Most shipments will have our new boxes not the paper bands. Recycle the paper box so the paper industry can reuse it.

Welcome to Shades of Green, I’m so glad you’re here!
When I opened the store in 2009 there wasn’t many options for sustainable, earth friendly products in our community. It was a bit hard at first to source these kinds of products but now with so many people getting on board with the Zero waste movement there’s so much more available. We love to support Local and Canadian Made products as much as possible but when we do source products made outside of North America we make sure they are Made responsibly in Fair Trade practices.
Thank you for visiting the shop and wherever you are on your earth loving journey we are here to help. Small changes everyday can make a big impact.
