Hand-crafted soap shaker using dish soap instead of detergent.

Fed up with having a plastic bottle standing by the sink? We have got a solution....use the hand-crafted (yes, made in NZ) soap shaker and use a dish soap instead of detergent. 

It can be used to wash your dishes, handwash your clothes or even a foamy bath. 

Why use a Soap Shaker?

  • Reusable
  • Eliminates plastic bottles
  • It is made from galvanised steel wire (this material will develop a grey patina with use as the zinc coating matures)
  • Hand made in NZ
  • Vegan

How to use the Soap Shaker?

  • always rinse food off dishes before washing
  • use hot water
  • either have the hot water run over the soap shaker while filling the sink or fill up the sink with water, pop the soap into the shaker and swirl it around until there is a lather

The Soap Shaker can be used anywhere else where you want a soapy lather; washing your precious clothes by hand or having a bath using your favourite soap.

Soap Shaker only, there is no soap included.

Eco criteria

Eco Product selection criteria

When we source our products, we try to find as many environmental benefits as possible. We source eco products that do not cause any unnecessary harm to our environment.
This particular product matches the following critera (click on each to see other products matching the same):

All of our eco criteria explained

Made from recycled materials or is recyclable

Recycling has many benefits like saving energy, conserving raw materials, reducing the amount of stuff that goes to landfills and it's also saving you money. 2.5 Million Tons of waste go to landfills each year (8kg per person/week) 3/4 could be saved by re-using, recycling and composting. Re-duce, Re-use, Re-cycle!

Contain no toxins or harmful ingredients

Many people suffer from allergies, asthma and other sensitivities because of products that contain toxins or otherwise harmful ingredients. Most of these products are used inside the house eg. for cleaning, as body care products, as a detergent and so on. We try to source products that are mostly natural and do not cause any harm to you or your environment.

Be compostable or biodegradable

What is the difference? Compostable materials provide the earth with nutrients once it has completely broken down. Biodegradable materials refer to the ability of breaking down and return to nature. Buying products that are compostable and/or biodegradable will help to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfills.

Fairly traded or Fairtrade certified

At the beginning of most production chains are the workers and farmers (producers). Sadly they do not always get a fair share of the benefits of the trade. You as a consumer can now make a conscious decision about buying fairtrade or fairly traded products and putting this right.

Reduce the dependence on oil

Many household items are made of plastic. Because plastic doesn't react chemically with most other substances, it doesn't break down or decay. Therefore, plastic poses a significant environmental problem as it hangs around in the environment for a very long time. We stock many products that use little or no plastic in order to reduce our dependence on oil.

Cruelty free

The testing on animals for cosmetic and consumer products needs to stop. Whether you decide to buy only vegan products, or just start incorporating more cruelty-free products into your life, it's definitely worth to go animal friendly. The products we source are cruelty-free and do not harm or kill animals in their making.

Just like my Nan used to have!

LOVE using this, it is a reminder of simpler times which is a good way to put a positive spin on doing the dishes! A good sturdy product and love that it is locally hand made.

Soap shaker

This arrived so quickly
It’s carefully and thoughtfully made. Great idea


Back to basics!

What a great concept, works brilliantly! I use it for soaking clothes as well with Sard soap. No single use plastic bottles will be entering my home again!


Hand-crafted soap shaker

I am so thrilled with this purchase!! Beautifully made and fits a whole bar of sunlight soap in it. I love the fact I will be reducing the amount of plastic bottles I buy.


Great product!

I have been using one for a while and it works well. To avoid waste, just slip the old piece of soap alongside a new cake so it stays on the cage.
