Eco Soapr evolution: enjoy pictures of our prototype work.
The final version!!!!
List of tested bar soaps that work well with Eco Soapr.
Generally, commercially produces soap bars are fairly dry and firm because they were stored in warehouses or retile establishments and work very well with Eco Soapr.
We are in process of testing several artisan soaps. Stay tuned.
Pure and Natural
Now, if you do not see your favorite soap on this list doesn’t mean that you will have problems using it in oour devices. All it means is that we did not have time to test it.
Everything you have ever wanted to know about Eco Soapr, but were afraid to ask:
- Q: Can the unit be hung on the wall?
A: It sure can. The same unit could be placed on the counter or on the wall. It has a removable stand to place it on the counter. For placement on the wall, you can either leave the stand attached to the unit or remove it and use just the body. The bottom of the stand catches flakes of soap that miss your hands, so you might want to leave it on even for wall installation.
- Q: Do I have to drill the wall to hang the unit?
A: Personally, I love drilling, but I hate holes. So, we give you options: You can use either screws or strong double-sided adhesive to hold Eco Soapr on the wall. When you need to charge Eco Soapr, the mounting bracket will stay on the wall while you remove the device and charge it.
- Q: What is the size of the bars of soap that fit inside Eco Soapr?
A: Great question. We opted to keep the device as small as possible to save counter and wall space. Because of that, the maximum size of the bar of soap that will fit our device is about 1.5 by 2.5 by 3.5 inches. However, if your bar is bigger, don’t despair! It is easy to just cut it in half with a knife and drop the pieces inside the device. It will work just fine. In the future, we will supply a cutting mold to cut extra-large bars of soap.
- Q: How will Eco Soapr grate soft soaps?
A: Most soap bars are perfectly suitable to be grated in Eco Soapr. No need to worry about high volume commercial brands. The device will not be clogged and will generate perfect flakes. However, some of the very soft bars produced by small batch artisan soap makers from olive and coconut oils might be too soft to work well in our device. We will keep a list of soaps that do not perform well on our website and urge our customers to share their experiences for the benefit of others.
- Q: What about humidity? I live in Florida. Will Eco Soapr work there?
A: We’ve tested Eco Soapr in a steamy, hot bathrooms and it worked well. So, no worries, even if you are in Florida you can enjoy our perfect flakes of soap.
- Q: I did not see anyone using a washcloth in your video. Why is that? Will Eco Soapr work with a washcloth?
A: Over the last two months we have become aware of the strong feelings that many people have about using a washcloth (rugs, loofas) while showering. We want to assure everyone concerned that using them with our soap flakes is as easy as using them with a soap bar.
- Q: Will Eco Soapr spy on me in the bathroom?
A: Ok, Ok, it was not “frequently asked”, but someone was concerned about it, and we feel that this person deserves an answer. Eco Soapr will not spy on anybody. It does not have any Internet connectivity or software in it. It’s just a well-designed mechanical device. So, contain your excitement and get back to washing your hands.
- Q: How long does it take to generate enough soap flakes for one hand wash? I do not have all day to wait for it.
A: It takes about 4 seconds for Eco Soapr to grate enough soap for an average hand wash. It might take longer if you are Shaquille O’Neal. But if you are, we will give you a second Eco Soapr for free just to speed up the process.
- Q: What kind of battery does the device use?
A: We are using a built-in, non-removable, long-lasting, rechargeable battery. The exact manufacturer and type have not been decided yet since we do not really know the quantity we will buy. You can recycle the batteries at any Staples or Best Buy.
- Q: How long will the device last on a single battery charge?
A: Assuming each member of a family of four washes their hands three times a day using Eco Soaps, it should last about 6 weeks. Unless of course, you are Shaquille O’Neal. Once you charge it overnight, it will be ready to go for another six weeks.
- Q: Can I turn the device on and off, so it does not use the battery and does not trigger soap grating automatically when I do not want it?
A: Yes, Eco Soapr has an On/Off switch. It is useful when you are going on vacation or moving the device from place to place.
- Q: I am not comfortable with using batteries in an environmentally friendly device. Will you produce a plug-in unit that does not have a battery?
A: Yes, we will, but probably not in this first batch. We want to walk before we run.
- Q: Will you be manufacturing devices using a different material than plastic?
A: Yes, we plan to introduce an aluminum body, but again, we want to make sure that the demand is there, and we can produce a device of outstanding quality and striking design.
- Q: How hard is it to put in a new bar of soap?
A: It is very simple: Just grab the top part of the housing with your index finger and thumb, push it down to release the locking mechanism and lift it up. It will expose the place to put your new soap bar. Drop the soap down the soap enclosure, replace the top of the housing and push it down to lock.
- Q: Will you be producing Eco Soapr in different colors?
A: For the initial production run, we’ll probably stick to a neutral nickel color. But once we have things running on a larger scale, we can do all sorts of fun things. Feel free to send us your ides about what would look good in your bathroom or kitchen!
Is Eco Soapr the Tesla of your bathroom?
The history of automobile dates back to several pioneers who brought about a massive change in its usage. Several pioneers have contributed immensely to the growth of the transportation industry. The input of Edgar Adderson and Stephen Blazer cannot be overemphasized with their craftiness which led to the manufacturing of various automobiles in different countries. Vincent Bendix and Benjamin Briscoe also went extra miles with automobile production which led to the formation of automobile firms and companies. They laid the foundation which has grown to the highly respected transport industry of today.
Technology is time driven, many things have changed in the industry, petroleum-powered automobiles are becoming less reckoned with, people are moving to the era of electric cars. Several factors have been instrumental in ensuring that electric cars become a name on the lips of every American lip or perhaps can we say the Americans have been the greatest drive that ensures the success of the project?
Tesla is a prove to various research which has shown the great influence environmental factor contribute to the success or failure of a project. Would the American people not have received it, the project would have ended up like the ‘999 trials of Thomas Edison’. The Americans are known to be dynamic and also with an exploratory mind. They are driven by the belief system engineered towards the possibility of improvement in technology. While there have been several electric automobiles before the birth of Tesla, Elon Musk has succeeded in creating a niche for himself. He has been resolute and determined to push the Tesla vision towards fulfilment. He has also maintained that the ultimate aim is to produce automobiles that can be readily afforded by the average Americans.
Research has shown that the ultimate drive of a successful vision is the desire and commitment to solve a particular problem or perhaps solve the problem better. Could there be another ‘Tesla’ springing up in the cosmetic industry? The need to use soap either for bathing or antiseptic purpose especially bar soap is an important task that needed to be done daily, however, the use of liquid soap is seen as an alternative although research has shown that its use is detrimental to the human skin; it promotes skin wrinkling due to its high Ph. The usage of bar soap has been low for some time but recent charts show that there is a new wave rocking the industry. The production of an effective and efficient bar soap dispenser has been linked to this growth. While there have been several dispensers before this, Eco Soapr is bringing to its users the combination of several things.
Convenience, efficiency, effectiveness are key factors which determine how well a product solve an existing problem. These are not only met with the Eco Soapr bar soap dispenser, but these factors are also laced with fun which makes it effortless to use.

Do you desire to get your hand cleansed, and much more do this without having your mind fixed to the act? Get an Eco Soapr bar soap dispenser now.
Eco Soapr: The Effective Way To Tackle Environmental Hazard.
The seemingly unending debacle between liquid soap and bar soap calls for a strategic approach in its analysis. Though, both have a large number of advantages which are inevitably corollary of the comparative advantage of one over another. The reason for this is not far fetched, no object is completely perfect but some are better of for human as regard health, environmental degradation and many other reasons.
The liquid soap unlike the bar soap has no definite shape and additionally, does not have the ability to maintain its form without being contained in a container. For this purpose, the plastic containers are made. However, a critical examination of this unearths the fact that plastic containers are not easily biodegradable and could live a hundred years without decaying. Research has also shown that one of the most common endpoints of plastics are the marines; seas oceans, rivers where they constitute environmental risk on the people, aquatics and immediate environment.
Here are few environmental implications of plastics and marine debris.
1). Reduction Of Aquatic Animals.
Research, when documented, can help to make quite a number of deduction. Research has shown that aside from the challenge of a reduction in the anaesthetic value of aquatic animals and plants around this region that occur, they are also prone to entanglement which reduces their number. Research conducted on typical oceanic areas such as New Zealand revealed that an estimated number of over 150 marine species suffer entanglement from plastic debris. People who make a living via the commercial sale of aquatic animals are also on the losing side as aquatic animals are either directly or indirectly entangled resulting to death either by injury, starvation or general enervation.
2). Reduction of Quality Of Life Spent.
The consumption of marine debris or plastics is of huge negative impact some of which can leave a lifelong detrimental effect on the victim. Research investigation shows that the ingestion of plastics is capable of causing wound which could be internal or external to aquatic animals as well as capable of causing suppuration. In addition, there are high chances of aquatic animals suffering from entanglement due to the ingestion of plastics. Other possible effects include a significant reduction in the quality of life as well as the reproductive capacity of such marine organisms. Observation carried out with about 100 species of seabirds unearth the emergence of abundant plastic pellets which when consumed due to reasons such as starvation poise huge threat to the continued existence of such seabirds such as the blockage of seabird oesophagus.
Combatting Environmental Hazard Poised By The Usage Of Plastics And Marine Debris.
The use of plastics to retain liquid soaps which are later disposed of has been shown to be a pointer to many environmental hazards coupled with the fact that such sights serve as a draw back for drawback as well as enhance colonization of the marine debris. The use of bar soap remains the best choice for environmental purposes, however, even this is prone to wastage. Eco soapr serve as the relative best approach to tackle this as well as promote the use of bar soap. In a similar manner, Eco Soapr serves as the best way to use liquid soap without hampering aquatic lives.
