LA CORVETTE MARSEILLE | Almond Liquid Black SoapRegular price $25.00 Sale price $20.00 $20.00
La Corvette Marseille's 1 Litre Almond Liquid Black Soap is a natural, heavy-duty cleaner that can be used around the house and garden. It banishes grime and grease and leaves behind a sweet, subtle fragrance of almond.
Like all La Corvette’s soap product, black soap is made the old-fashioned, artisanal way, which involves cooking naturally derived vegetable oil and essences in a cauldron. In this case, the time-tested recipe calls for olive oil, linseed oil and pomace oil (sourced from the remains of pressed grapes). Combined together, it creates a little black magic in the cauldron.
Used as it is, liquid black soap cleans dishes, scours greasy surfaces like ovens and range hoods, and treats stains in the laundry. Diluted, it will deep-clean and protect all sorts of floors, from timber to tiles. Out in the garden, it’s brilliant for heavy-duty cleaning. It really shines when it comes to scrubbing terracotta and ceramic pots, without leaving any chemical residue.

How do I replace other cleaners with liquid black soap?
While it’s well known in Europe, Australians are not so familiar with black soap and its many uses. Here are a few FAQs:
For fabric stain removal: Place about a teaspoon on your fabric, rub lightly and leave for a few minutes. Launder in your washing machine as usual.
As black soap is very concentrated, for light coloured fabrics (such as white linens and cottons) we recommend testing it on a small, inconspicuous area prior to use.
For deep cleaning: Dilute 40ml in 5 litres of warm water.
For cleaning and conditioning leather: Dilute 15ml in 1.5 litres of warm water. Dampen a cloth or rag and pat the leather clean (rather than rubbing). The shine on the leather will be restored.
To clean and degrease surfaces (countertops, bathtubs, timber, ovens, copper, silver), patios and interior floors: Dilute 15ml in 5 litres of warm water. Does not require rinsing.
Can I use black soap paste on my pet?
Yes. Start by rinsing your pet’s coat and massage about 40ml of black soap paste on their coat. Rinse and wipe dry.
