If you have sensitive skin, using bar soap for handwashing clothes may not be a good idea. ZOTE soaps have solved this problem perfectly.
They have pink and white color bar soap to hand wash your clothes including delicate. Many people think it’s just a different color.
So, I have differentiated the ZOTE soap white vs. pink so that you can see it’s little more than that. Stay with me for a while.

Key Differences Between White And Pink ZOTE Soaps
Let’s see why it’s not just the dye:
- Different Purpose
So, why do you separately wash your whites and colored clothes in your washing machine?
Well, you don’t want to discolor your whites, right? Similarly, you don’t want to hand wash your whites with pink or blue ZOTE soap.
The pink or blue ZOTE soaps are intended to be used for all of your clothes other than whites. The white ZOTE soap is meant for your white clothes and delicates like lingerie and knitwear.
The white ZOTE does not contain any dye; so it’s even more natural.
In my experience, white is great to whiten your whites. The pink does the basic cleaning. There is no difference between the two in terms of performance. Both of them have great stain-removing power.
And you don’t need to apply any fabric softener either!
- Different Smell
Like the sensitive skin issue, people have sensitive smell issues as well. Some people are allergic to certain scents too.
The pink ZOTE soap has a light citrus smell that a lot of people love. Of course, there are plenty of people who are allergic to that citrus smell as well.
For them, the white ZOTE soap has a citronella scent. Lots of people love the smell of citronella essential oil, right?
Well, the white ZOTE soap contains citronella essential oil and you may fall in love with that smell too.
You may get a strong smell right after opening the bar soap. But don’t worry, no smell will taint your clothes’ smell.
So, ZOTE soaps don’t have any ‘laundry-smell’ and when you are done handwashing your clothes, they will smell nice and fresh!
The white ZOTE soap is a little bit cheaper than the pink or blue ZOTE soap. I don’t know why but maybe because the white one does not contain any dye.
Also, the demand factor may be another reason.
- Ingredients In ZOTE Soap
Along with optical brightener, all the ZOTE soaps contain animal fat (sodium tallowate), sodium cocoate, glycerin, citronella oil, etc.
The main ingredients are the same for all white, blue, and pink ZOTE soaps. But the white soap does not contain any dye.

One thought on “ZOTE Soap White Vs. Pink: It’s NOT Just The Color!”
I have found that pink Zote is a good basic cleaner for anything in your home. Last week, I used it to scrub out my tub and tile enclosure, plus sinks. Everything came out sparkling. It seems to remove a lot of oils (and even pink mold–I live at the coast), which any of the cleaners I’ve used–bleach, peroxide, even Comet, leave behind. I used it on my refrigerator door handle, which was filthy, again I tried everything–bleach, peroxide, rubbing alcohol, Comet and it wasn’t until I used Zote that it came clean. I even used it to wipe down the front of my refrigerator. I’m still finding new ways to use it. And what a fantastic value, especially compared to how much these other cleaners cost.
P.S. I have used it on white clothing, too. Especially a white blouse that had stains, which turned gray after I sprayed it with bleach. The Zote completely removed the stains and my blouse is now bright white again.
