Up until now I have loved using my sponge brush where you can pour dish soap into the handle and it dispenses as you wash. One thing I do like about that also is you can buy new brush heads for the handle which does limit waste. However, this is definitely not the most sustainable option either since the sponges have to be thrown away and my dish liquid comes in a plastic bottle. So I wanted to try out this brush and dish soap bar!
For the record, I don't have a dishwasher where I live but if you do have a dishwasher that's great! It saves water compared to hand washing dishes. Also, Dropps has eco friendly dishwasher pods that you can try out. Or comment below if you have another favorite eco-friendly dishwashing tab.
Overall I do think that I like this brush better than the sponge, it seems to do a better job at scrubbing off any stubborn food. The soap I'm still a little iffy on. What I've been doing is wiping my brush across the bar and then scrubbing my dishes. I do notice a lather on the dishes as I scrub but not all of the time. I'll edit this post when I finish going through the entire bar to see how long it lasts me.
I also find this brush super easy to hang on the hook of my dish rack and I keep the dish soap on a wooden soap stand in the corner of my sink so I can easily tap into it and wash dishes. Kyle even said that he really liked the soap brush as well so I'm happy we'll at least be able to continue using this and not the disposable sponges.
