This huge block is what we use in our studio on the daily. It lasts MANY months even with our heavy use throughout the day. We use it extensively, at least 10 times per day, seven days a week.
Our zero-waste vegan 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.
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.
The HUGE 21.5 oz bar is great for intense industrial use, like in a pottery studio, mechanic shop, or daycare center. We have been using ours for months at the studio sink and it's about halfway used. For one person at home, it can last up to 9-18 months. For a household of two people, it can last up to 4.5-9 months. For larger households, it will typically be used at a faster rate.
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. We also now have our short handled White Teakwood Agave Dish and Vegetable hand brush for stuck on food and general dish washing.
How to use: Scrape dishes to remove excess grease and food. Wet sponge, for plates, bowls and cups, and rub Dish Block® bar 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.
For extra sparkly dishes: wipe dishes dry with a cloth.
Pro kitchen tip: Use the same Dish Washing 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!
Please note: using a strong scourer exclusively on the block will wear it down faster than using a soft sponge.
Contains: One 21.5 oz Dish Block® bar. (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.)

Absolutely love this. Lasts a while too
I am a new user of the Dish Block, and I love it: it is easy to use, it cleans well, and it replaces many bottles of liquid dish soap. I fill one of my sink basins with water and then place dirty items in the water to soak to loosen debris. I remove an item, scrub it, and then fill the other sink basin with the soaped-up items, rinsing the items in bulk.
We wanted to try and get rid of the plastic bottles of soap in our kitchen, but nothing seemed to fit the bill good enough to ditch the plastic, until this bar! We love it, it soaps up really well, cuts through grease and grim and has lasted FOREVER! my husband bought two bars, back on 8/22 not realizing how long they last. We still have more than half a bar of the first one and we use it everyday for a lot of dishes. Love, love, love it and we'll never go back to any other kind of dish soap.
Works great! I have noticed that I use less water (and definitely less soap) because I can't drip a bunch of liquid soap into the sink before filling it up with hot water and pretending like I'm "letting the dishes soak."
Now I just wet the brush and get soap, use a little water to get the dishes wet and rinse after. The soap works great at getting them clean and it rinses off easily.
The block can feel like a lot to manage at first, it is a little too big for a normal soap holder (you definitely need one that's flatter, wide and rectangle.) After getting wet a few times, it eventually stuck down to my soap dish. It is very big and occasionally has to be pushed back up on the sink ledge so it doesn't fall off. That happened once or twice. Seems like it would be best on a wooden slatted soap dish, but one that is big enough. Since I try to buy everything in person, I plan on tracing the block on a piece of paper and taking that to find the right dish for it. Probably at Goodwill.
Seems like it will last for a couple years, at least one for sure. I've had mine about three weeks and with a natural wood handled dish brush and you can tell it is being used, but it doesn't seem to have gotten any smaller.
I just couldn't bring myself to buy another plastic container of dish soap. I switched to a shampoo bar awhile back and I eventually got my partner on board and we switched to bar soaps everywhere but the kitchen. I soak orange peels in vinegar and that is our all purpose cleaner so no plastic there. The only source of plastic (other than food consumption which is a constant battle full of bulk jars, a drawer full of paper bags I'm planning to reuse, ect.) has been laundry and dish soap containers. I considered dissolving a bar of castile soap, but the texture was confusing. I have purchased bulk soap from a zero waste market in a glass soap dispenser they had for sale but my partner didn't find the soap bubbly enough and the dispenser launched the soap everywh...
