Unfortunately, we have been brainwashed by clever marketing to believe that we can’t clean properly without big, fluffy, sudsy bubbles. You need to know that this is not the case at all.

Bubbles are almost always created by the addition of surfactants (substances which reduce the surface tension of a liquid in which it is dissolved such as SLS (sodium lauryl sulphate) and SLES (sodium laureth sulphate).  According to davidsuzuki.org, depending on manufacturing processes, Sodium Laureth Sulfate may be contaminated with measurable amounts of Ethylene Oxide (known human carcinogen) and 1,4-Dioxane (possible human carcinogen). So, rid your mind of all preconceived notions that bubbles are the only way to achieve clean dishes.

This dishwashing liquid is good if you’re a squirt-it-on-a-sponge kind of dish-washer; it cuts through grime and doesn’t leave behind any residue – just be sure to rinse in hot water.

If you’re after a sink full, yes you can use this recipe, but you could also try Soapberry Stock. Watch this video – I show you how to make it. 

Sometimes I just use my Foaming Hand Wash recipe, on a sponge, or I drop a Dishwasher Tablet into a sink full on water. Both quite simply get the job done and are great in a pinch when you have nothing else on hand.

Initially, it does feel odd I must admit, not having a sink full of the foaming white stuff. But trust me, you’ll get over it. We did!!
