Azul e Branco soap

Azul e Branco is a type of soap used in Portugal. It is comparable to household soap, but it has a rugged texture, bulky shape, and lack of odour and can generally be purchased in many convenience stores. In Portuguese "azul e branco" literally means "blue and white", which are the distinctive colours of the soap.

Given the size of a bar of soap (a long 4-sided prism which weighs approximately 1.5 kg), it must be cut to the desired size before use.

Formerly, azul e branco soap was popularly used to wash linen, carpets, and floors, and also for personal hygiene.

Its usage has greatly declined in recent years as more attractive soaps and detergents become more common.
