When we lived in Brazil as a young family we loved how the farms and ranches made their own solid dish soap. Next to the sink sat a large solid block of this rural living staple. So here it is and we love it! Rub your rag or sponge on top of it and away you go. Lard from the pigs and and coconut oil are the main ingredients. Lemon, bergamot and peppermint essential oils give a wonderful scent.
