A little bit of good news for Earth.

This story caught my eye and made me hopeful. Using refillable liquid products is really difficult because you have to get your container to the shop to fill it up.

Single use plastic bottles for water, shampoo and detergents are a grotesquely unintelligent way we personally make pollution.

I have moved to solid bar shampoos and soaps without any difficulty at all, but some liquids still defeat me. This clever woman has found away to deliver “top ups” from an old electric milk float. What a shame Amazon didn’t think of it and use old milk floats for their deliveries now that everybody wants them!

    My mother had a regular milkman delivering the milk from a milk float right up to the end of her life (2017) – I think he’s still going, third generation at least. That’s in the West Midlands. He also delivered eggs, potatoes, general groceries and even potting compost!

    Yes to the soaps but shampoo bars have defeated me: I have a huge mane of thick, curly hair and it’s impossible to distribute the foam from a bar through all of it. The next best think I’ve discovered are Beauty Kubes (sic), which are individual cubes of solid shampoo that crumble into a dust that you mix with water. Google them with the above spelling and you’ll find them. I am a massive fan (unscented, of course, as we can’t have too many scented products due to He Who Shall Not Be Named).

        For soap making I would start by getting a soap making book or watching several videos online. Compare notes on the videos and if have any questions feel free to ask me. When you are ready to start making a shampoo bar leave me a comment on my blog and I will be happy to share my recipe if you’d like.
        I use a lot of vinegar and baking soda for cleaning and a homemade bar soap combined with borax and washing soda for laundry detergent.
