|pink and white ZOTE|
Made in Mexico
Seven years ago I heard about ZOTE and how it could be grated for homemade detergent or used to rub the bar on stains. However, I have never found it in any store in this small town. A few days ago, I found the pink bar and purchased one. Yesterday, the white bar was added to the inventory at the store, so I purchased the white one.
The scent is overwhelming, much like some US detergents. Right now, I am in the midst of a major allergy attack brought on by handling, smelling, and sitting next to the two bars. Of course, my system is overloaded with pollen right now.
ZOTE bars are a whopping 14.1 oz or 400 grams. It is a brick-sized soap bar. NOT kidding. Walmart also had ZOTE soap flakes in bags. The bars are $0.98, not a bad price, I suppose.
I doubt I will ever grate the bar for homemade soap. I doubt I will ever use it to pretreat a garment. So, that is my review. If you have allergies, avoid this. I am suffering right now.
Have you ever used ZOTE for a pretreat bar or grated for detergent? Do you find the smell overwhelming? Does the scent cause an allergic reaction?
