Carbolic & household soap slabs
450g bars of carbolic soap PINK…. and now household GREEN soap! Cut them with a cheese wire or a hot knife. You can grate the bars to make a washing solution too. Should last awhile….. Carbolic soap is certainly the ‘marmite’ of smells… Love it or hate it. It will probably remind you of the smell of school or possibly your Gran’s house. One of the key ingredients is phenol which was one of the very first disinfectants. Which explains why it was used in so many institutions.
The green bar is a great all round household cleaning soap too, but without the distinctive carbolic smell. Very effective cleaning and great for laundry too.
