Sano's San Foam Dish-Soap

I've heard experts say many times that in general we use too much soap when cleaning, be it dish soap, detergent or any cleaning agent. The concept behind Sano's new "San Foam Dish-Soap" is to encourage us to use less soap and therefore less water to wash the soap away, and still get our dishes perfectly clean.

In a country where we rarely get enough rain and water is extremely precious (and expensive) the idea of using less soap and less water seems like a "win-win" situation.

With Pesach fast approaching I thought it would be a good time to review Sano's San Foam Dish-Soap.

I've tried foam face-soaps in the past and actually really liked them so I was happy to try Sano's Foam Dish-Soap.

Sano claims one "pumps wroth" of soap should be the right amount for 10 plates. I found that not to be enough, maybe I still have to get used to using even less soap, but when I soaped up the dishes, without the water running, and then rinsed them all at the same time, I thought one pumps worth was enough soap for about 5 dishes.

The bottle is actually rather large and at this rate I think it will last me quite a while.    

It says they added Aloe Vera to protect your hands, but I always wear gloves when I wash dishes, so I can't say if the Aloe Vera  helps or not.

The bottle says the soap is made specifically for the hard-water we have here in Israel. It also says it has no Allergens and all the active ingredients are made from only natural sources.

Bottom Line: I liked Sano's San Foam Dish-Soap and the pump system works very smoothly. It left the dishes with a clean fresh smell. I'm thrilled to be using less soap and less water and still getting perfectly clean dishes.

1 Liter bottle – 15.99 NIS

  1. Where did you find this? I would like to try it but haven't seen it. Could be because I wasn't looking :-)

  2. Hi Annette
    I found it at Rami Levie but according to the Sano representative I talked to, it should be in all the major supermarkets with in the next few days.
    If you find it and try it I would love to hear your opinion.

  3. Thank you so much Annette for your kind words it's so nice to hear that you love my blog:)
