Description

Cleaning takes on a different dimension when you use natural plant based soaps. I will fully admit to enjoying cleaning now – I do 99% of my household cleaning with Hemp Oil Soap or Soapnuts.

We are especially proud our Hemp Oil Soap, which is inspired by the earliest soap made in Britain – made between the 12th and the 19th Century.  The ingredients are 100% British grown and pressed hemp seed oil, 100% British lye-water. It is the British version of Savon Noir. The soap is completely free of additives and free from plastic contamination.

This soaps is gentle on the skin, unbelievably tough on grime and devastating to microbes. Use these soaps for any dreaded cleaning tasks for washable surfaces without rubber gloves.

Traditional soap has always been recognized for its universal properties. There was not a certain soap for shaving, for cleaning or for washing – one soap did everything! I have over 1200 documented uses! Fascinated by this soft soap or black soap as it is known in historical texts, at Natural Spa Supplies we have set out to recreate the 12th century hemp oil soap recipe – it took 18 months of experimentation. I will admit that we do not cook the hemp oil soap over an open fire and I still don’t know why these soft plant oil based soaps are often called black soap!

Cleaning with Hemp Oil Soap

Try Hemp Oil Soap for a rubber-glove-free cleaning experience.  It is liberating!

This traditional soaps are left in their original fully concentrated form and you you soon realize just how little you need, sometimes just a tiny dab of soap will do the job. As an example, I cleaned every surface in my kitchen (except the ceiling!) with about 20g of hemp oil soap.

The General Principles of using Real Soap

 

There are two types of traditional soap:

Water based soaps made by soaking or simmering soapy plants such as soapnuts, soapwort etc. The liquid produced can be used neat of diluted. Use for shiny thing, glass, dishes and for clothes washing but be prepared for many surprizes!

The second type of soap is the oil based soap made by saponifying oil and lye – getting these two ingredients to transform into soap and glycerine. This can take a lot of coaxing and the recitation of encouraging words. Although there are a lot of crossovers as to which soap is best for which task, sometimes only one of these soaps is fit for the task on hand. Hence all the information pages. It will soon all become filed in the common sense region of your brain. The plant oil based soaps are best for the really grimy tasks.

Soap can be used neat or diluted in hot water depending on the size area to be cleaned or the absolute griminess level.

Soap is more active in hot water.

Soap takes time to do its work. Half the time rubbing and scrubbing by allowing the soap time to do its work.

Most surfaces require rinsing.

… Now for some tasks!

Cleaning in the Kitchen with Hemp Oil Soap

 

We spend most of our cleaning time, cleaning things in the kitchen. Don’t feel sorry for us, we listen to the radio at the same time. Find out how to eco clean everything in your kitchen with hemp oil soap: Walls, skirting boards, floors, the refrigerator, freezer, the sink, cupboards inside and outside, slightly burnt pans and saucepans, badly burn saucepans, the extractor fan, cloths used for cleaning, the oven and grill pans, tiles and mildew.

Clothes and textiles

How to remove dark stains from collars and cuffs – wet the stained area, for delicate fabrics, rub in a knob of soft soap by hand, or for durable textiles, scrub the soap in with a brush. Ignore for an hour or so, then rub or scrub and rinse. Repeat of needed. Then place in the washing machine and wash as normal with soapnuts. Try the same technique also on other stains on clothes. I have rescued five woollen jumpers and several linen skirts! These powerful oil based soaps are the perfect compliment to soapnuts.

How to Clean Everything in Your Lounge

Having visitors is a great incentive to cleaning the lounge. Get your cleaning supplies to the ready and invite some friends over. You’ll be surprized how easily you can clean rugs, carpets, sofas, the fire place and heath

How to Clean with Hemp oil Soap in you Bathroom

Clean the sink, taps, shower screen, bath, bidet, shower tray, tiles, the floor, just about anything in your bathroom. If you are a good tea maker or a worthy home brewer, your guests will probably want to use the bathroom at some point. So you’ll need to clean this too.

Cleaning Up After Pets Made Easy with Traditional Soap

Pets like to keep us agile and fit by shedding hair, furballing, spilling food out of their bowls, causing tidal waves in their water bowls and missing the litter tray. It is all for our benefit! Whatever you need to clean up, you can always wash your hand’s afterwards!

For dried surprizes: furballs and doo-doos behind the sofa, dissolve the offending matter with a Hemp Oil Soap and vinegar mixture.

Use the naturally antibacterial Hemp Oil Soap and don’t forget to scrub the nails at the same time.

Cleaning a wooden animal cage (guinea pigs, rabbits, chickens, quail etc)

First remove the animal! Put it somewhere sheltered and safe. Remove all the soiled bedding. Make a solution with 1-2 soup spoons of olive or hemp oil soap dissolved in a bucket hot water. Use a scrubbing brush, cloth or sponge to wash the entire cage. Repeat if necessary. Make sure the cage is dry and odour free before adding fresh bedding, food, water and of course the animal occupant. If you didn’t know this already, fleas, mites and other annoying insects hate black soap. If your animal is infested with fleas or mites, clean their cage thoroughly and book them in for a bath in real soap – just don’t get it in their eyes.

More to come!

WARNING

Do not get soap in the eyes. If you do get soap in your eyes flush with plenty of running water.
I did allow some soap to run into my eyes and it really did hurt and irritate my eyes. I will not be repeating this experiment!

Keep away from pets and children.

Do not ingest – accidental ingestion is unlikely as soap does not taste pleasant. If soap is ingested seek medical attention. Take the jar with you.

Test an inconspicuous area of the surface to be cleaned before use.

    I bought the hemp soap after hearing of its stain removal properties,

    I admit I was sceptical about all that I had read but……it was all true!

    I had some nasty grease stains on a tee shirt (cooking oil) and some tea stains on a dress. Tea is almost impossible to shift.

    I dabbed some hemp oil soap on the grease stains and washed as normal using soap nuts. I was delighted to see that the stains had gone!

    I had some tea stains on a dress and thought I’d give the dress the hemp soap treatment. I dabbed the stains with the hemp soap and washed as normal with the soap nuts. Whilst the stain had not gone completely, it had faded, so I repeated the treatment. After washing and close examination, the stain had gone completely! I was amazed!

    Thank you for introducing me to this marvel of laundry and clothes care! I recommend its powers to all my friends who complain about the stains not coming out of their clothes!

  3. Thank you very much – I didn’t know about the ability of hemp oil soap to remove tea stains! I really should do a series of experiments and write it up!

    The hemp oil soap is truly a fantastic product. I use it both for my skin and for cleaning fabrics, both of which jobs it does wonderfully. I am particularly impressed with how gently, yet thoroughly, it cleans my hands. I have had so many problems with soaps over the years – nearly everything leaves my hands red, itchy, dry and sore (even bleeding on occasions!), even natural Castile soap has caused me difficulties. However, the hemp oil soap never, ever seems to dry the skin of my hands. I am so impressed and will continue to use it as long as you keep making it!

    I have only just started experimenting with the range of tasks this amazing soap can tackle! What I am 100% sure about is its use for exfoliation. Having believed I had exfoliated before with other products, I was actually momentarily alarmed when the dead skin started to roll off with the use of hemp oil soap and the exfoliating glove in the kit! Absolutely amazing and a wonderful feeling. Equally, not only are its deep cleansing and exfoliating properties so good, it does not strip the live skin of natural oils. I have always suffered with somewhat dry skin. Now, I exfoliate once a week to maintain smooth, hydrated skin with no need to use any additional moisturisers!

    This stuff is amazing! I cannot use bar soap as however pure, it always leaves my skin dry. This hemp soap moisturises and gently exfoliates. The first time I used it, it felt like my skin could breathe properly as many commercial products leave a residue of chemicals, which irritate delicate skin. I have it by the sink for washing hands and take one to the gym to use in the shower. I use it with a small sea sponge to wash my face and it has made my skin much clearer. It has a natural earthy smell and a great consistency, which makes it very easy to use and store. I love this product and am grateful to Sally for taking the time to research the ancient art of making it as it is a forgotten skill.

    Fabulous Natural Product 10/10
    Having had some issues with normal soaps and facial scrubs I thought I would give this a try. My main issue was developing small nicks and cuts while shaving with a razor and those lead into tiny spots. I used a very small amount of the Hemp Oil Soap in my hands added to small amount of warm water and washed my face after a wet shave. My skin has never been better and completely blemish free. Highly recommended product and will order the larger size jar next time.

    I have been using this as a shaving soap for a year now and it is the best soap I have ever used, far better than any gel or foam. You use just a little bit and it lathers up slightly. It gives a very clean shave, does not irritate my skin, and leaves it soft and clean. Brilliant stuff.

    This is the most amazing product; super versatile. I use it to clean myself and the entire bathroom. Magic!
