  • Suitable for both sink handwashing and dishwashers. Beyond dishes, it can be used for various cleaning tasks around the home.
  • With the cost-of-living crisis, paying excessive amounts for little plastic, chemical laden tablets make no sense. Especially when you have a budget-friendly option that delivers exceptional cleaning results like this.
  • Easily transform it into tablets for added convenience using water and an ice cube tray.

Your Packaging Options

Made of brown recycled paper and a corn-based, 100% natural biofilm these bags are not only a renewable resource but are also compostable, so you can dispose of them guilt-free. We recommend commercial composting, and please ensure you remove any tin ties and labels first. Depending on the environmental conditions, the Earth Bags can take approximately six months to decompose.

Our unique glass apothecary jars are both cute and practical, adding a touch of charm to any home while keeping your products fresh, dry, and out of direct sunlight. With a wide mouth for easy filling, each jar can hold up to 750ml of our ingredients, though the exact weight depends on the density of the ingredient.

Our jars are made from recycled glass, and their amber colour adds to their vintage appeal. Please note that due to their recycled nature, there may be slight imperfections that only add to their character. For ease of use, the inside of the lid measures approximately one tablespoon, making it simple to measure the perfect amount.
