Make Your Own Washing Up Liquid – no less!

Soooooo this is going to quick and to the point.

How many times have you frequented a supermarket and looked helplessly for a ‘cruelty-free’ range of cleaning products??

Too many times?

Personally I try not to shop in any big supermarkets anymore.  As I’ve decided to make a real impact I need to only buy from local shops, markets or farms.  I believe being cruelty-free also means putting back into our very own communities, just like it should be rather than lining the pockets of big corporate’s that most likely don’t give two figs about their staff or the environment.

What do you think?

Either way, I wanted to share with you an even better way of being cruelty free, by making your own!  It’s also pretty easy going on the pocket too.

So what will you need? (Thanks to ‘A Year Without Supermarkets’ blog)

850ml of boiling water
1 tablespoon of soda crystals (only cost me £1.50 for 1.5kg bag!)
1 tablespoon of grated soap (cruelty free soap of course and a cheese grater – if you still have one!)
1 tablespoon of vinegar (I used white wine vinegar)
2 drops of lavender oil
A squeeze of lemon juice

What you’ll need to do:

it’s so easy!

All you need to do is put the boiling water into a large bowl, add all the other ingredients and mix well. Let the mixture cool down and then fill  an old washing up liquid bottle and there it’s done!

No more ‘cruel’ tested on animals washing up liquid!

AND it does work!

Yeah, it may not come up all bubbles and smells, but it cuts the grease and cleans every thing!

Let me know what you think
