What kinds of materials can be cleaned safely with Yaya Maria’s dish soap?
Anything you would clean with conventional dish soap: ceramic, crystal, glass, plastic, porcelain, stainless steel, wood, rubber, etc.
Is it just for doing the dishes?
Not at all! It works great as an all-purpose rinsable cleaner. It’s safe for cleaning baby bottles, toys, and breast pumps, and is great for cleaning the sink, countertop, patio furniture, stove, or microwave. Use it to pre-treat any stain that you would normally treat with conventional dish soap. And best of all, it’s gentle enough on skin to use it as your go-to hand soap… or even shower gel, if you want to go all Einstein.
Can I use Yaya Maria’s in the dishwasher?
Sorry. Dishwashers can only handle non-sudsing soaps, so you should NOT use Yaya Maria’s in the dishwasher.
Is your bottle BPA-free?
Can it be used with septic and gray-water systems?
Yes—even better than other dishwashing detergents, actually, because it's biodegradable.
Does it foam?
Yes. The foamiest way to wash your dishes is to apply Yaya Maria’s directly to the dish sponge, but if squirting it into the dishwater is your preference, that’s cool. The dish soap will still clean your dishes even without mega suds, because—did you know? Suds don’t actually do any cleaning. It’s the soap that does all the legwork. Conventional dish soaps contain cheap chemicals whose sole purpose is to foam—which may look & feel satisfying, but doesn’t actually get your dishes any cleaner. We use only natural ingredients that really work—and they lather up nicely on a sponge!
Why a 3-Pack instead of singles?
So you can get more bang for your buck on shipping. But if free shipping is more your style, go for two 3-Packs. Order with peace of mind thanks to our 30-day money-back guarantee.
Can I take my Yaya's camping?
Absolutely. It's actually ideal for hitting the road, because unlike other dishwashing liquids, it's biodegradable - and multi-purpose too. When we venture out we use it as an all-in-one dish soap, hand soap, and body wash.
How did you get your name?
Andy, the founder of Yaya Maria’s, gets this asked a lot and he's glad, because it’s quite a story. It all began with a little old lady named Maria who lived a long time ago very far away, in Greece.
One day she received the news that her grandson was born, making her a grandma (Yaya means grandma in Greek). She was so overjoyed that she decided to open up a bank account in her grandson’s name that very day. In the years that followed, whenever she could, she put aside a couple of dollars from her small pension for his future. This was her secret that she shared with no one, and by the time she died, she had forgotten about it.
Many years after Yaya Maria passed away, her son was sorting through a box of her belongings. To his surprise,a booklet fell out. It was the forgotten bank book of the account that she had set up for her grandson. Her son couldn’t believe his eyes. Immediately, he called Yaya Maria’s grandson and told him that he had found a gift from above, sent from his late grandmother.
The young man was overwhelmed by the thoughtful deed that his grandmother had carried out without mentioning a word to anyone for all of those years. And that grandson was Andy, our founder.
Because he was in the process of starting this business when he found out about his grandmother’s generosity, he decided, in gratitude, to name the company after her. And just like she put aside some money for her young one, he too will donate parts of the proceeds to a good cause that supports children in need and help someone else’s young one.
