Carbolic soap slabs
£3.50 – £6.50
Great big slabs of carbolic soap. 900g or 450g. 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.
