Where do I find Zote soap, and what is it anyway?

Zote soap is a key ingredient of many home-made laundry detergent recipes. It is not, however, particularly easy to find.

Zote soap is a laundry soap and will therefore be found in the laundry aisle of the store, not with the bath soaps (although it looks similar to a bath soap in appearance and packaging). A bar of Zote soap has a distinctive logo and most commonly comes in a 14.1 oz size – like a supersize version of a bath soap. It comes in three colors; pink, blue and white. Of these, pink Zote soap is the most commonly used version.

  • Pharmacies
