The "green soap" is used mainly for household chores (especially clothes). It also had a good reputation for its disinfecting and healing properties on skin infections, allergies, bed sores, and strained muscles.
The "PATOUNIS Soap Works" with a history of over 150 years, still make handcrafted soap by traditional methods from locally produced olive products. The Corfu plant built in 1891, preserved with its functioning tools and equipment, constitutes a living memory of a splendid old local tradition.
Nowadays there is only a handful of such traditional olive oil factories left in the world and one of them is on Corfu, run by Apostolos Patounis. His great-great-grandfather founded the business in 1850 and it has been the family business ever since! The place has changed very little in over 150 years and the traditional tools are still used!
