Any fans of our dishwashing cake and scouring cream out there? We are pleased to introduce their offspring: the scouring cake! Lol.

This scouring cake, also known as the clay stone, is super handy, incredibly quick to make, and lasts a really, REALLY long time.

Traditionally, white clay is used to make it, which produces a white stone. But I wanted to come up with a locally sourced stone, so I used grey clay from the Kamouraska region. This clay is hand harvested by amazing people. We have wonderful resources here, so let’s support our local economy!

Aside from the difference in colour, the results are the same, and I guarantee you it works just as well.

Recipe for our locally sourced scouring cake

  • Prep time: 5 min
  • Yield: Varies depending on size of part
  • Shelf life: Indefinite



1 Mix the powders in a bowl.

2 Add the liquid soap, and stir until mixture forms a smooth and consistent paste.

3 Pour into a ramekin, a cup, a 250 ml wide mouth Mason jar … any container that will make it easy to use the product.

4 Let dry 48 to 72 hours or until the cake is firm. The cake can be compressed a few times as it dries. The clay stone may crack, but that’s ok! :)

How to use

Simply rub a moist sponge, a natural luffa sponge or a brush over the cake, then scrub whatever needs to be scrubbed!

Keep your home spic’n’span with our scouring cake!

What can you clean with it, you might wonder? What can’t you clean with it?! Its uses are almost endless. Use it anywhere you would use a cream cleaner or scouring agent. It can be used to scrub:

  • sinks
  • faucets
  • glass-ceramic surfaces
  • showers and bathtubs
  • ceramic grout
  • anything, really!

Let me know how it goes! :)
