Why go green for your dishwashing detergent? 

Because it’s not just about you…they are safe and effective, and better for the environment. Conventional, chemical-filled detergent can affect your health and the health of waterways and aquatic life.

Do lots of bubbles equal lots of clean? 

Short answer no. It’s a myth that you need a mass of  soap bubbles for an effective clean – a marketing tact! High suds formulas are generally only for ‘show’ as this is what people have been conditioned to expect. It doesn’t affect the cleaning process. We need to get over the idea that more bubbles = more clean,  less is actually better.

Why buy concentrated products?

You can also save money and water. Many  litres of water are used to dilute conventional detergents before they get bottled.

Why is this good to use on my boat?

Abrasive cleaners, ammonia or chlorine are bad for your boat’s gel coat surface. Instead, use a mild detergent with warm water to keep your hull clean. You can also use product to clean your seats, fibreglass decks and canopies.

Why use this to wash woollen clothes?

Minimise what you have to buy. Why use Wool Mix or another laundry product when this is  soft enough to handle woollens and delicates and your washing up.

HACKS and TIPS

Best way to wash up

Remember to always use the right amount of product!

  • Prep – scrape off food
  • Fill – get some clean, hot, soapy water
  • Wash – scrub them, under the water
    • Wash “in order,” starting with lightly soiled items like glasses and cups, then plates and serving dishes etc. Dishes are easiest to wash  after they have been submerged for a minute. 
    • Finish the wash with the dirtiest utensils – pots, pans, saucepans. Don’t forget to wash the bottom of the pan too 
  • Rinse – wash off all suds and residue
    • Rinse suds and residue with clean hot water. 
  • Dry – air dry or towel dry

Keep your washing up sponge clean 

Handy for washing up, they can harbour nasties if you don’t keep them clean.

  • Squeeze your sponges dry after washing up
  • Rinse thoroughly after use
  •  Squeeze dry the sponge to prevent bacteria from breeding on your sponge. 
  • Even better if you can find a sunny spot to dry the sponge.

How to clean your rangehood 

  • Remove the filters from the rangehood 
  • Fill your sink with very hot water and ‘Soft’ 
  • Place filters in the water and make sure they are submerged fully, leave 15 mins
  • Use a scrubbing brush to scrub over filters front and back 
  • Rinse clean with hot water, if possible place them in the sun to dry naturally, else wipe down with a cloth and replace.

How to wash wool

Wool can be delicate, so always hand wash woollen items in cool water.

  • Mix cool water with ‘Soft’ and use hands to gently mix together 
  • Submerge woollen item fully and soak for up to 30 mins
  • To rinse, run cool water through the item until all soap has gone 
  • Do not wring the water out,  press the water out of the item. 
  • Lay item flat on a fresh towel,  and roll the towel and woollen item up together (imagine rolling up a sleeping bag) to remove even more water.
  • Return the item to a flat position and place it away from heat and sun to dry naturally.

Wool never-nevers

  • Never wash wool in hot water 
  • Never put wool in the dryer 
  • Never use bleach on wool 
  • Never put wool in a heavy spin washing cycle 
  • Never store wool in a plastic bag 
  • Never put wool away wet

How to  wash your car

  • Always pre rinse with a hose – this will ensure you get a lot of the dirt off before you ‘start’ 
  • Next, grab two buckets of water and a wash mitt or cloth
  • Add preferred car shampoo to one bucket, leaving the other filled with fresh water.
  • Start at the top, use your soapy wet cloth in a gentle sideways motion to clean from the top down (the sideways motion will minimise swirl marks and ensure a consistent, even clean). Work around the car until you have cleaned the whole unit.
  • If your car is very dirty, you might need to do this a couple of times  – it’s a good idea to wash your cloth in the clean water a couple of times too so you aren’t just transferring dirt from the wash basin to the car and back repeatedly.
  • Rinse the car with your hose, starting from the top down again.
  • Once all shampoo has been removed, use a microfiber drying cloth to dry the car – again with the sideways
