Trying to get back to basics in every day living =cleaning products :today DISHES
I have been only using sunlight soap to do our dishes this last couple of weeks, I have a antique cage on a handle (that was lovingly given to me by my sister to whom I am eternally grateful.) This holds half a cake of sunlight soap and I hold it under the hot water when filling the sink for dishes. if i need to rinse dishes off i do it in water and a splash of vinegar.
I have also been making crochet squares , using them for reusable cloths for dish washing and wiping down the benches..works a treat.
I wash them regularly and then hang in full sun to dry. saving lots of $$$ on both dish wash liquid and wipes.
I am also making these Washcloths to sell at markets, they have been doing really well. I also use them as a body buff in the shower and have found them to be so much better than any commercially made ones.
