I've been scared of this day for many moons and have been wondering over and over, "What, oh what, am I going to do without dishwashing liquid?" and "Where, oh where, will I ever find plastic free dish soap?"
But no fear. Dr. B's is here.
I've discovered, as many others surely have, that Dr. Bronner's bar soap does a fine job at getting the grime off my plates and flatware.
Here's how I wash dishes:
- For a large batch, I fill up the sink part way with hot water and swoosh my lemon-scented bar of soap around in it when it's done filling. Then I proceed as normal.
- For a smaller batch, I just dab the sponge on the soap now and again and wash like I normally would
(BTW, Beth over at Fake Plastic Fish uses Dr. Bronner's liquid soap, which comes in a bottle made of 100% post-consumer recycled platic. Definitely a decent option for those not into bar soap)
