Black soap is a natural, multi-purpose cleaner that can also be used to make an eco-friendly, economical washing liquid for the laundry. After food and cosmetics, the time for green homes has come. The space we live and breathe in is too often the place where we use products that harm our health and our environment. Our grandparents already used black soap to clean everything all around the house. Today, its virtues have been revived. Pure, it can be used as a pre-wash stain remover on dark and coloured fabrics. But it is also ideal for making a natural laundry wash that is economical and can be used instead of synthetic detergents.
