This Vegetable Wash is formulated for washing fruits and vegetables that are easy to rinse. It lathers very well and it's very gentle on the skin. You can use this bar for regular hand washing, or washing dishes. It is a bubbly and creamy soap that rinses off very quickly, and when used correctly (20 seconds with agitation), would be extremely efficient in deactivating viruses and bacteria.
I have personally washed these these items with the Vegetable Wash: strawberries, blueberries, apples, eggs, packaging of food, pepper, squash etc.
How do I use it for vegetables and fruits?
You can lather up a clean sponge with the soap with some water, and apply the bubbles, or the bubbly sponge directly on the items. Agitate and lather up generously, and then rinse the bubbles off with running water. If the fruit is a little more delicate (such as strawberries), it's recommended that you give them an extra rinse.
This soap should feel easy to rinse off. It would be safe for consumption afterwards.
Certain fruits and vegetables are not recommended for this product to be directly applied on. They would be items that are difficult to rinse off due to hard-to-reach areas (such as raspberries), or vegetables with high surface areas (such as salad greens or broccoli).
This soap is all natural, and made with only 5 ingredients- Olive Oil, Palm Oil, Coconut oil, lye and turmeric. The resulting bar is a well balanced soap for bubbles, softness, and gentle cleansing for your skin. Turmeric is a natural spice that's used to decorate the top of the soap in this recipe.
Comparison of the Coconut Wash vs. the Vegetable Wash
Which bar is more bubbly?
The Vegetable Wash
Which bar lasts longer?
The Coconut Wash is a harder bar and lasts slightly longer
Which bar is more gentle on the skin?
The Vegetable Wash is less oil-stripping for the skin and therefore a bit more gentle on the skin. I would recommend the Vegetable wash if your hands tend to be dry, and the Coconut Wash if you have normal skin, or tend to work with oil and grease often. The Coconut Wash is great for removing the grease.
Which one is a more natural soap?
Both the Coconut Wash and Vegetable Wash are all natural. The Coconut wash has only 1 type of oil (coconut oil), and the Vegetable Wash is a blend of 3 oils.
Which one do you recommend if I want to use it in the garage setting, with a lot of tough grease?
The Coconut Wash, hands down, as it's amazing for washing of those dark engine oil marks off the hands.
It does not contain added fragrance. There is a light natural scent of olive oil and coconut oil.
