These new dish soap bars hold fresh peppermint and coconut oil for your dirtiest dishes and also comfrey and olive oil for you and your hands! These are made with Whidbey-grown (here at Ritual Mischief) peppermint and with comfrey from our friend and neighbor Randall’s house. These bars make doing dishes a joy. Well, maybe not always a joy, but they definitely make it feel like less of a chore and more of a relaxing, self-care ritual. And using them means removing yet another plastic container from your daily life. Yay!
These work best in combination with a dishcloth, loofah, or other dish scrubby thing. The bars aren't as bubbly as commercial dish liquids, so you'll need to adjust your expectations about that. And, they smell great and clean really well.
Storage and life of the bar: To extend the life of the bar, store it where it can dry quickly after use and where it doesn't get regular spray from the faucet. We store ours on a draining dish beside the sink. My own trick is storing it standing on one of its edges. It makes it easier to get off the dish where it lives after it dries.
Size: Large bars are roughly 4 ounces. These are made by hand in small batches and hand cut by cool women, not machines. This means bars can vary a tiny bit. We keep anything smaller than 3.9 oz for ourselves and our families, to give away as free samples to people who order from us, and to give as gifts to neighbors in need (last year it was soaps to a local homeless shelter and to healthcare frontline staff at my mom's memory care home). We're not machines, people, nor do we want to be. :-)
Ingredients: Organic coconut oil, Whidbey peppermint and comfrey infused into organic olive oil for 6 to 8 weeks, sodium hydroxide, and peppermint essential oil.
Packaging: See the Packaging page of this website for details. If you would prefer no packaging at all, just put that in the Comments field when you order, and you'll receive them bare naked!
