Washing up - again!

At  last - a decent working replacement for those hirrible plastic scrubby things for pots and pans. Have been using one of these for just over a week now, and can't recommend them highly enough.The only downside is that they are imported from the Phillipines*, but from a small family, ethical , Fair Trade company. It goes soft and pliable in hot water and does a really good cleaning job. So - decent ethical washing up liquid**, hand knitted compostable cloths using scraps/charity shop ends etc and this for scrubbing. Think I've cracked it.

* - I have loofah seeds to try growing my own this year

** watch out for a really ranty post about Fairy Liquid coming up!!

Where did you get them from? How much do they cost?

I bought mine at a small independent organic shop here in Dorset; I paid £1.29 each for them I know they're on Amazon a bit cheaper in a multi pack :)

I leve any burnt stuff to soak overnight just with a wee squirt of Ecover. This scrubber will shift it fine next day.
