Directions: Squirt 3-4 pumps into hot, running water and sniff!
Detergents still have their place in industry, and various steps are being taken to help minimise their environmental impact. But at home, you don’t really need anything that harsh for your dishes and clothes.
As for viscosity, many think that dishwashing liquids need to be thick and gel-like. This plays on the fact that a thicker liquid means 'concentrate'. If its a concentrate it will last longer so I better buy it. Take liquid castile soap, it's pretty thin but cleans beautifully.
The truth is many dishwashing liquids are thickened with nothing but good old salt and sometimes Xanthan gum - neither of which really add to any cleaning power.
You can have a thick, super sudsy dishwashing detergent that does a bad job OR a thinner, low sudsing soap that does a great job.
So there you have it.
Oh, this can also apply to shampoos :)
By using PET that has already been in circulation, we can offset the amount of new PET that needs to be created.
Creating a plastic bottle from 100% recycled content uses 75% less energy than its virgin counterpart.
Although some energy and water is still needed to process these plastics into new forms (which is why we love reusable!), the amount is significantly less than creating first-time plastics.
Over 60% of first-time PET production is used to create polyester textiles.
