I tried about 4 different brands of environmentally-friendly bar soap for washing dishes over the course of about a year, and finally landed on Hippie Haven, which meets all of my criteria! Others left a film on dishes, or got used up quickly or just didn't work, but Hippie Haven's is perfect! It definitely takes some getting used to, if you haven't used a bar before.
Loved the soap but the brush with the handle came apart. Ordering more soap but not sure whether to try brush again.
I've been searching for an alternative to dish soap packaged in plastic for some time. Most dish soap I've found doesn't clean terribly well (doesn't cut grease, need to use large quantities to be effective) but this works well and gets the job done. Shipping was fast and there was NO plastic!
This bar arrived at my home in California just 48 hours after I placed the order. It's working really well for me, and seems like it will last longer than other solid dish soaps I've purchased. Also, with other solid soaps, I ended up with little "soap crumbs" on the wall & window behind the sink, apparently splattered from my scrub brush. So far I haven't had any of those with this soap.
Love this dish soap bar. I got it because if it's natural ingredients and no palm oil. I use it with a round natural scrub brush and works really well with all my dishes, even greasy stuff.
