This brilliantly effective Swedish multi-purpose soap is made for the home-indoors and out-but is also a heavy duty cleanser for dirty hands and bodies. Great news for those of us who want sparkling floors AND clean mitts-without any chemical-heavy bummers that require gloves. Lovingly made by hand in Sweden (Skargard is also known as the Stockholm Archipelago), this traditional soap is ideal for cleaning wooden flooring, patio, porch, decks, outdoor furniture, or stone, or for washing cars, ovens, bathrooms, rafters, paintbrushes, or tools...really any zone you can get dirty it can get clean. Made from rich, environmentally friendly linseed oil, beloved for millennia for its natural re-greasing properties, this soap maintains its shiny clean for a good long while when used in small quantities, or, if used liberally can also provide a natural oil finish for woodenware and floors. 500ml
