As we’ve mentioned before, one bottle or tub of Marius Fabre Black Soap can replace several bottles of typical household cleaners. While we’ve found that using black soap as an everyday dish soap doesn’t necessarily leave us with the same squeaky clean feeling that regular dish soap does, we have found that it works really well as a scrubbing or degreasing compound.
Using Black Soap for Dishes
Recently, I made a large pan of scrambled eggs. Apparently I didn’t use enough oil or butter because egg got cooked onto the bottom of my pan. What a mess. Normally I would soak the pan for a couple of hours and then use a pan scraper to get rid of some residue before using my sponge and soap. Well, we were headed out of town and I needed to get the pan washed and put away before we left.
I added a dollop of liquid black soap to my sponge and started scrubbing.
The cooked-on egg came off quite a bit easier than if I had just used soap. I can also recommend using a small scoop of soft paste and rubbing it in with a sponge or paper towel. In either case, the elbow grease needed to clean the pan is less than using traditional soap. I followed up with everyday dish soap and dried as usual.
