Soap Bottle Set: 2 Bottles, 2 Sponges, 1 Scrubber Brush, and 1 tray
Style and sustainability come together the Blisshaus-way in our sink set-up. The set includes one white sponge, our German scrubber brush and two of our favorite soap bottles.
The sponge is cellulose-based so fully compostable when done. We cut our sponges in half to double their useful lifetime. Plus we pop them into the dishwasher to disinfect them and get extra use out of them.
The scrubber brush lasts us 2+ years and then it, too, goes into the compost as it is totally plastic-free. The short, nubby handle is perfect for hard scrubbing. You can put a ton of pressure on yet still keep your hands our of the hot water when you clean your pots. We also use it to scrub our potatoes and other root veggies.
The soap bottle has the perfect, slow drizzle so you don't overdo it with the soap.
We fill the soap bottle with 1/2 dish soap and 1/2 water. This makes the soap nice and runny enough for the dispenser tip. Also, diluting the soap doubles the volume and washes plenty well.
In fact, we line up 4 bottles with our soap mix under the sink. Looks super pretty and is so practical.
We prefer filling our soap bottle with castile soap. It is 100% plant-based and free of synthetics and artificial anything. We don't keep a separate bottle for hand soap - the castile soap is perfect for dishes and hands and even floors and bodies... you name it! Childrens' Hospital uses castile soap to bathe their little cancer patients pre-op - so it's save for the most sensitive skin and super clean for the most critical moments in life (sending our blessings to the babes in the hospital.) So no need for a separate bottle of hand soap next to your sink.
For extra bonus Blisshaus points, check with your local co-op whether they carry castile soap. Some co-ops sell castile soap in bulk so you can refill plastic-free. But even if you can't find that, buying one huge jug of castile will save a ton of plastic compared to buying individual soap squeeze-bottles.
