As basic as a soap can be, while having mad cleaning skills.
Use a wet dishcloth/sponge/scrubber and lather directly on the block. Wash yo' dishes as normal. You can also lather the block with your hands under running water, to give your dishes some pampering in a bubble bath. For stuck on crud, fill the dish with water and soak the block for a minute or two, or use a small shaving of the block in the water.
Hand crafted (we feel like mad scientists) at Honey Pot Headquarters, with only a little influence from Fight Club.
Made from simple ingredients - organic coconut oil, distilled water, NaOH (this turns the oil into soap), beeswax and essential oils (our plain block has no essential oils, just the sweet goodness of it's own soapy scent).
