Tired of accumulating used cooking oil? Well, from now on you can take advantage of it for cleaning thanks to SOUJI, a compound that, mixed with the filtered oil and stirred for a minute, turns it into a liquid detergent for washing clothes. The product not only prevents mismanagement of waste, but is much more respectful of the environment than other cleaners as it does not contain caustic soda. It comes in a fantastic recycled cardboard bottle.
Convert cooking oil into detergent.
The idea, launched by a Spanish environmental engineer, is simple: you buy a bottle of this product and, with that, you can recycle used vegetable oil of any kind, such as olive, coconut or sunflower oil. After filling the container and stirring it vigorously, the liquid soap is obtained. A bottle of SOUJI allows recycling up to 230 milliliters of waste oil after cooking with it.
As you can see in the video, this idea is intended to promote the recycling of vegetable oil and curb the environmental impact produced by dumping it down the drain. Hence, its name, SOUJI, cleaning in Japanese, chosen by “the great responsibility of the Japanese culture with order and cleanliness of the environment,” say the promoters.
Cleaning the planet from a product for cleaning clothes is therefore the premise of this innovation, which, however, is also suitable for use in the complete cleaning of the home. Despite using used oils, the resulting detergent does not retain the bad smell but rather provides a fresh and clean aroma, according to its promoters.
The liquid soap obtained from recycling oil contains a minimal proportion of phosphates, which reduces its environmental impact. For this, in addition, the product is sold in a biodegradable container, specifically in a one-liter bottle with 770 milligrams of the compound, to which the oil can be added. If, instead of recycling so much quantity, the consumer opts for a smaller mix, a calculator can be accessed here that will provide the correct proportions.
Using SOUJI “means helping to clean our planet and our home”, defend the promoters of the product, who also invite “more responsible consumption” . Thus, if you are among those who do not know very well what to do with the excess oil after cooking and want to pick up the glove, this idea is already on sale for € 14.95 per liter bottle and € 9.95 per bag, through SOUJI or in the section of La Biosfera in El Corte Inglés. We have tried it and we have loved it, a highly recommended product.
Since the price was being an impediment for many when buying this product, they have released a new packaging format, it is a 20-liter bag in box with a reusable bottle, to create the mixture, destined for the HOREC sector , It is already being used by several restaurants. And it can also be used in bulk stores or simply to share with the family, to reduce the use of packaging and lower the cost of the product.
