So you’ve started on your plastic free journey and you’re considering making a few swaps in the kitchen? Here are some tips and advice on changing the way you wash your dishes.
First of all organise your equipment. This is what I use:
Start to fill the sink or basin with water. Take the washing up bar and rub it between your hands under the running tap to create a lather.
Rub the bar directly on to the item to be washed
If there is burnt on food you may need to use the bamboo scraper.
Use the coconut scrubber or cleaning cloth to rub the dishes. Use the cloth first and then the scrubber for more stubborn marks. Just like when you use a foam dish cleaner- the cloth is the equivalent of the yellow side and the coconut scrubber is like the green rough side.
Rinse as normal!
You might notice that you get a lot less suds with the bar method than with liquid soap. Don’t panic. It feels nice and silky. And it really does the job well.
