Here's what's NOT in the All-Purpose Home Cleaner:
✓ Single-Use Plastic-Free
✓ Palm-Oil Free
Here's how to use the All-Purpose Home Cleaner:
- The refillable glass spray bottle comes pre-loaded with one All-Purpose Home Cleaner tablet
- Remove sprayer and add warm water
- Close bottle and shake gently; wait for the tablet to dissolve. Warm water will dissolve the tablet faster than cold water (do not use very hot or boiling water).
- Spray your All-Purpose Home Cleaner on any hard surface*
- Wipe until clean and dry for a streak-free finish
*Always test any stained/finished surface in an inconspicuous spot
When empty, add 1 All-Purpose Home Cleaner Refill Tablet to the bottle and repeat the steps above. Every refill tablet eliminates the need for one more single-use plastic bottle. Hooray!
If you go a couple of weeks between uses, the soap and water solution may separate. Give the bottle a little shake to mix it up before cleaning.
After adding water, use bottle contents within 6 months.

More Ingredient Information:
Potassium Cocoate and Sodium Cocoate: These are the chemical names of saponified (that is, 'made into soap') coconut oil. It's the chemical that grabs onto both dirt and water to do the cleaning.
Glycerin: This substance is chemically a type of alcohol and is naturally created when the oil is converted into soap. Glycerin is known for skin-softening abilities and is an effective solvent, meaning it can dissolve substances such as stains and dirts.
All glycerin in our products is a natural byproduct of the soap making process. We do not add additional glycerin. As a result, the glycerin is vegan, cruelty-free, and 100% organic coconut oil-derived.
Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil: There is a small amount of coconut oil left in the soap after conversion to potassium cocoate and sodium cocoate. This is because we use potassium hydroxide and sodium hydroxide, both of which are commonly called lye, in the conversion process. Leaving a little excess oil ensures there is no remaining lye in the finished product. Some soapmakers refer to this as "superfatting." The more oil left in the final soap results in a softer, more moisturizing bar. Our cleaning soap recipe has only a small amount of excess oil, which results in a "get the job done" cleaning product instead of a lathery and luxurious finish.
Water: Water is used in the soapmaking process to dissolve lye and ensure the lye can reach all of the oil to fully and safely react. After saponification, the water evaporates from the soap. This takes a few days to several weeks.
The resulting solid soap has very little water, typically less than 5%. This solid form is more shelf-stable than liquid soap, able to last years without a preservative that liquid soaps require (liquid soap is about 60% water).
