But there is hope, solid dish washing bars cut out the need for some of this plastic. They are usually more cost-effective too, our 64g bar is equivalent to a 400ml bottle of washing-up liquid and will last approx 2 months!
We absolutely love the Battle Green Solid Dish Washing Soap Bars, which has won not one but THREE Beauty Shortlist Awards, including 'Best Eco Cleaning Product of 2021 (Kitchen)' 🏆
Battle Green make their vegan and plastic free dish soap bars using the cold process method with 100% organic coconut oil, a dash of UK white clay for a hint of scrubbiness, and some gorgeous essential oils. Eucalyptus is deodorising and effective at cutting through grease, with a clean, fresh scent, while Lemongrass has antibacterial properties and a bright, uplifting scent 🍋 A real multi-tasker, these bars don't stop at washing dishes - they will also remove stains and clean surfaces! Additionally, they come in minimal packaging, wrapped in compostable paper printed with plant inks - a true eco-warrior of a product!
Place the Dish Soap in the sink and fill with hot water. This won't cause any bubbles but instead, the water will go cloudy. Use a plastic-free cloth to clean glasses and dishes which aren't heavily soiled. If you notice any residue on dishes from the Dish Soap, rinse with water before leaving to dry.
