Nothing Short of a miracle
This handy 250 ml tube is a perfect introduction to the magic that is La Corvette Marseille’s range of olive oil-based black soap. It’s an excellent multipurpose cleaner, degreaser and stain remover with applications around the house.
Use it straight from the tube as a stain remover for laundry. Dilute it to wash dishes or clean greasy surfaces like ovens and range hoods. In fact, it can clean just about anything from pots to shampooing your dog, so it easily replaces a dozen specific cleaning products and eliminate the packaging that comes with them.
La Corvette’s black soap is made the old-fashioned way, cooked in a cauldron in the company’s French workshop. A combination of olive oil, linseed oil and pomace oil (sourced from the remains of crushed grapes) give it superior stain-busting properties while making it environmentally sensitive.
Here are a few frequently asked questions about black soap:
How do you use black soap paste in the garden?
Black soap is used in France as a natural insecticide. To protect plants and roses against aphids, whiteflies and mealybugs, thoroughly mix about 1 tablespoon of black soap paste with 1 litre of water and spray the mixture on the plants, not forgetting under leaves, Repeat after two days.
Doing this at cooler times of the day avoids any risk of leaves getting burnt by the hot midday sun.
Can I use Miracle Black Soap for household cleaning?
Of course! It’s a very fuss-free, versatile cleanser, so therefore economical. No more nasty chemicals and no fainting spells from strong chemicals.
For flooring, surfaces, wood, ovens, copper, silver: Dilute about 1 tablespoon in 3 litres of hot water. No rinsing required.
For extra-deep cleaning: Dilute about 3 tablespoons in 3 litres of hot water. No rinsing required,
For maintaining silverware or DIY and garden tools: In your laundry, kitchen, garden sink or bucket, dilute about 3-4 tablespoons in 3 litres of hot water. Soak items for 5 minutes. Dry with a soft cloth.
For fabric stain removal: Place a hazelnut-sized portion of paste on your fabric, rub lightly and leave for a few minutes. Launder the item in your washing machine as usual.
As black soap is very concentrated, for light coloured fabrics (such as white linens and cotton) we recommend testing it on a small, inconspicuous area prior to use.
For standard machine washing: Add 3 tablespoons of black soap paste for every 5 kilos of laundry. Add 100ml of white vinegar as a natural softener. Add natural essential oils for fragrance, if you like.
Can I use black soap paste as a shampoo on my dog or pet?
Many people ask if you can use dishwashing soap on dogs. But standard dishwashing soap can be quite harsh on your dogs skin. Dishwashing soaps will quickly strip your pet’s skin of the natural oils that help to nourish and protect it. This leaves the skin less well-hydrated, which decreases its ability to keep bacterial yeast, and allergic irritants away.
Miracle Black Soap with hydrating olive oil is great option. Start by rinsing your pet’s coat and massage in 1 tablespoon of black soap paste. Rinse and wipe dry.
