Corfu Soap is gentle to the skin and is perfect for treating more delicate surfaces such as marble floors and joints.
Corfu Soap is a pure olive soap, made on the Greek island of Corfu.
The soap is handmade using a process that has stood the test of time for more than 150 years – containing only olive oil, lye, water and sea salt from the local region. No added dyes, preservatives or fragrances.
By adding this soap to our product range, we want to do our part to preserve the traditional craft of soap boiling and ensure this soap can be produced for years to come.
Corfu Soap has been used for generations as an all-purpose cleaner, from household chores and laundry, to body care and wool felting.
As part of our product range, the soap serves as a cleaner for oily or waxy surfaces, brushes and rollers, as well as for manual cleaning.

Cleaning smooth floors of all kinds, in particular oily or waxy floors made from cork, wood and ceramic tiles, as well as lino.
Add 2 tablespoons of Corfu Soap to 1 litre of kettle-boiled water and stir until the soap has dissolved. Then dilute with 7 litres of water and clean the floor as usual.
Cleaning brushes and paint rollers
Add 4-5 tablespoons of Corfu Soap to 1 litre of kettle-boiled water and stir until the soap has dis-solved. Leave to cool for at least 30 minutes. Thor-oughly wash oily brushes and rollers using the soap solution.
Dried, oily tools can usually be cleaned by briefly boiling in the soap solution.
Soaping floors and tables
In some parts of Germany, it is customary to protect softwood floors and tables against dirt by simply “soaping” them. This preserves the bright character of the wood as far as possible. Over the years, a beautiful patina then usually develops.
Dissolve approx. 20 grams of Corfu Soap in 1 litre of boiling water. Apply the warm soap solution to the untreated wood floor or table, working with a suitable brush, scrub and then leave to dry. Repeat if necessary until the desired result is achieved or until the surface is coated with an extremely fine soap film. This process may need to be repeated from time to time, depending on wear and tear, in order to guarantee sufficient protection for the wood.
Warning: Wood containing tannin, such as oak, may become severely discoloured. It is expressly recommended that you create test areas to assess the result before carrying out any large-scale work.
