Make your own cleaning products 15/09/18
Walk down the Household Cleaning aisle in any supermarket and you’re surrounded by products which are potentially damaging for you, your family and the planet, from the toxic chemicals to plastic packaging, and unsustainably sourced ingredients. So, how to clean and still be green?
This workshop is for anyone who wants to move away from traditional commercial cleaning products and reduce the muddle of bottles, sprays, detergent tubs and general gloop in the cupboard under the sink. Using safe and natural ingredients we’ll look at how to make effective alternatives for household cleaning jobs, including laundry, washing up, disinfecting, windows and mirrors, wooden furniture and floors.
This is a hands-on session, and we’ll be creating our own products and personalising them with a range of essential oils and natural scents. The products we make will be inexpensive and kinder on sensitive skin, as well as kinder to the planet: it’s Earth Care meets home care.
