Guide Review - Zote Laundry Soap Flakes - About.com Laundry Product Review

Zote Laundry Soap is one of the leading laundry products in Mexico and it is now available in the United States. Zote Soap Bars and Zote Flakes are manufactured by Fábrica de Jabón la Corona, a Mexican company that produces household cleaning products and edible cooking oils. Along with Zote, they export laundry detergents Roma, Foca and Blanca Nieves in liquid and powder formulas to the U.S.

Listed product ingredients are:

  • Sodium tallowate (beef tallow)
  • Sodium Cocoate (coconut oil)
  • Fragrance (citronella oil)
  • Optical Brighteners

    Zote Flakes are recommended for both hand-washing and machine washing delicate items like lingerie and knitwear. The flakes are safe for colors and all washable fabrics. Zote Flakes are very convenient for making homemade laundry detergent.

    I gave Zote Flakes a try in a regular washer for a load of delicate items and and it worked well. There was low foaming but I would not recommend using in a high-efficiency (he) washer especially at the package recommended amount of 3/4 cup per load.

    Since Zote Flakes are a soap, the product is effective for removing body oils and soil on clothes. Before using on certain stains, check our stain removal chart to be sure that soap will not set the stain. While not effective on every type of stain, Zote Flakes can find a spot in your laundry room.
