How much should I use in the sink?
This is totally up to your discretion, but I usually spoon in 1-2 tablespoons & add more if needed.
How do I turn them into dishwasher tablets?
You will need an ice-cube tray, bowl, spoon & some water. In your bowl add approx 1 tablespoon of the Dish Powder for each tablet (so 12 tablets = 12 tablespoons approx). Then add approx 4-5 tablespoons of water & spread it evenly through the mixture. You can add more water as required, but don't make it too wet, it should resemble wet sand & hold when pressed together. Then simply spoon into your ice cube tray, compress & let set. P.S You can add essential oils if you like too.
Is this harsh on my hands?
Well that depends on how sensitive you are, but it is an alkali solution so direct hands in the sink for a very long time may start to cause some minor irritation. You could use gloves or increase the soap & reduce the washing soda proportions.
Is this safe for septic tanks?
The ingredients are mild, safe & biodegradable which should not affect the bacteria in septic tanks like harsh chemicals can.
How is this packaged?
You can choose from a stunning amber glass Apothecary Jar or in a eco-friendly paper Earth Bag. The sexy amber glass Apothecary Jar, which has a wide mouth so it’s easy to fill. It holds 750ml which is a perfect size, not to big not to small and the lid actually holds about a tablespoon so it’s like an inbuilt measuring cup. The Kraft paper Earth bags. come with a tin tie so they are easy to reseal. Once done, remove the tin tie and it can be home composted. Inside is a corn based bio film, which looks a bit like plastic but it's not. This will just help keep the ingredients fresher.
