Rakh Utensil Cleaner for Coarse Metal


Up until a couple of decades ago, Wood Ash was a common kitchen cleaner in households across India. Its usage reduced when factory-made utensil cleaning products became popular through advertising and marketing. When people migrated to cities, Wood ash was seen as inconvenient, coarse and messy. Meanwhile, village and rural homes have continued to use ash, thanks to easier access to it and continuity in their lifestyles. 

While Rakh Utensil Cleaner uses ash as a basic ingredient, it also contains reetha, multani mitti and tea leaves. When combined, all these ingredients make a formidable cleaning product for metal utensils. Packed with natural goodness, this powder is gentler on the environment, particularly on water systems.
