Collection: Washing Up

Plastic free washing up is simple and one of the easiest plastic-free swaps to transition to. We don't have a dishwasher so everything we use is washed by hand, so every plastic-free washing up product has been tried and tested.

We have a number of options depending on your personal preference. I like to use the coconut scourer but my other half prefers a scrubbie. We both love using the dish wash block, which took a little getting use to but now has become second nature. It's really incredible to see the variety of plastic free products available for when it comes to washing up. 

It's important when starting out on your plastic free journey to do it room by room and as items run out. For example, if your sponge is at the end of its life, replace it with a scrubbie but continue to use your fairy washing up liquid until it's finished and then try replacing it with the dish washing block. 

I hate to think how many washing up liquid plastic bottles I've chucked into the recycling bin over the years. Not only that, but what was in them? Nasty chemicals can cause rashes and skin irritations and also harm the environment once entering our water system. Always check the ingredients and opt for natural and organic if possible, with materials that have been ethically sourced.
