How much does the 750ml Apothcary Jar hold in grams?

All the powder ingredients have slightly different weights and consistencies - for example the coconut soap is very light and with larger particles. This means approx 400g is required to fill the jar.  Bicarb, Washing Soda etc are finer yet more dense, so approx 750g will fill the jar.  There is a breakdown of the weights in the book that comes with this kit and don't worry, its all factored into the recipes. 

Why do I need all of these ingredients?

Together they solve all the cleaning needs you could come across in your home. They can be used individually or mixed for a whole ranges of uses like in the garden or for making crafts. Whilst some you will use more than others, they make a perfect toolkit.

When you look at the fact that 30+ ingredients go into making one tiny commercial dishwasher tablet, the amount of ingredients in this kit is but a crumb in the breadbox of chemicals. 

Each ingredient serves a purpose and has a cleaning function which you can explore in this article: The science behind the Green Cleaning Ingredients
