There must be others who have discovered just how few consumer products are required to keep you, your dwelling and also the environment clean.
For many decades now I have not purchased dish washing liquid. All that is needed is a tissue to wipe the oil from utensils, then a scourer, if necessary water. Water and ‘elbow grease’ will be just as effective. Saves a lot of money too. A back brush is all that is needed for showering, no soap – which is very drying.
Occupants in a house I once shared told me that my cleaning of the shower with bicarbonate of soda was the best clean it had received compared to the various chemicals they normally used.
Vinegar will disinfect surfaces and clean windows.
Our seas and rivers are so polluted, why add oils and detergents where creatures that benefit the ecology are endeavouring to exist?
I have visited many homes and been amazed at the range of ‘ghastly unguents’ under sinks.
Harken: A few wee germs will stregthen your immune system.
