Think of all the different cleaning tasks from washing up, windows, the floors, cupboards, the cooker, the hob, the fridge, the shower screen, loos. Then think of all of the different products which are marketed for all these tasks – washing up liquid, window cleaner, floor cleaners, multi-surface cleaners, oven cleaners, hob cleaner, shower screen cleaner, toilet gels. That’s a lot of chemical products, a lot of plastic and a whole lot of pollution.

Introduction to the Products in our Eco Cleaning Kit

Natural Spa Supplies soapnuts showing their foam on bolderSoap Nuts, or Soap Berries, Soap Nut Shells

A detergent which grows on trees. Yes, these soapy fruits grow year after year, and they produce saponins (soap) in their leathery skins. After being gathered by village collectives, the fruits are de-stoned and dried. They yield a water-soluble detergent which is great for washing the clothes to replace chemical washing powder and for making a multi-surface cleaner and washing up liquid. This soap is my ‘go to’ for shiny surfaces. Soapnuts are totally skin and hair friendly and you won’t need rubber gloves to use them. I’ll list their many uses further on.

 

 

 

Our naturally antimicrobial hemp oil soap comes in three sizes. We show all three in a photogragh on rocks with hemp plant leavesHemp Oil Soft Soap

This is a British oil-based soap which we make at Natural Spa Supplies from hemp seed oil and lye. Being a soft soap and having a gel-like consistency it can be used neat or diluted in water. It is a ‘universal’ soap which mean it is very multipurpose as it can be used for washing and exfoliating the skin, wet shaving and for cleaning. This soap excels at the difficult cleaning tasks such as roasting tins, burnt pans, the hob, very greasy surfaces such as the cooker hood, leather and steel. This soap prooves itself invaluable for cleaning germy things because it is a powerfully antimicrobial and along with this it is quick to deodorize surfaces. With our Hemp Oil Soap, you can deodorise your under arms in the shower in an instant and deal with puppy mess accidents and other hygiene incidents! I’ll make a big list for you in a bit.

 

Walnut Shell Powder

Another tree product, the ground shells of walnuts, have a rough but non scratching surface and we recommend adding a sprinkle at point of use for very hard tasks. The Walnut Shell Powder is also antimicrobial. Where other cleaning product had relied on microbeads which pollute the oceans and enter our food chain, walnut shell powder, fully biodegradable is a great way to add extra ooomph to your scrubbing.

 

 

5 Natural Spa Supplies Scrubbies showing the different patternsScrubbies

Imagine a cleaning cloth made of cotton, a tad smaller than a face flannel, but with the textile loops which are as hard as gypsum rock. Now add some psychedelic colours to your imaginary cleaning cloth and you have a Scrubby. Just looking at a Scrubby will bring you joy, but get one in your hand and start using it and really, you will find it hard to put down. It helps speed up pretty much any cleaning task. Scrubbies are so tough that they can be washed time and time again in the washing machine at 50°C returning to their bright colours.

I use a Scrubby in my kitchen many times a day to speed of washing up and to help out all round. I have more, in the bathroom and loos. My husband even has one in his shed. The Scrubby is great for cleaning the bathroom fittings, taps and the shower screen. It excels at detail cleaning, such as the little line of grime which forms between the floor and the bath panel and tiles. Most rough surfaces such as skirting boards, stone floors would shred normal cleaning pads but not the Scrubby. It can handle almost any washable surface. Do just check a small area of your surface first, to make sure the Scrubby isn’t too powerful!

Soap Nuts Uses

Laundry – put 3-5 soapnuts in an odd sock. Place it in the washing machine drum and do your wash. Use the Soapnuts in the sock for another 3-4 machine loads. It costs just pennies per machine load.

Washing up & Surface Cleaner – Stand a handful of Soapnuts in a jug of water for an hour or so to make natural detergent. If you are in a hurry, put some Soapnuts in a jar of water with a tight-fitting lid and shake it up. You have an instant planet and hand friendly detergent. You could also strain some of the soap nut liquid into a pump spray bottle if you find it more convenient. Once you have used up the Soapnut liquid, add more water to make more! Keep going!

Soapnuts Can Clean …

Dishes, pots, pans, glassware, mugs, cutlery – no need to rinse • hand washing delicate Textiles, especially silk • Kitchen surfaces and tables • Walls • Floors of PVC, laminate and linoleum Taps – it removes fine films of limescale Cupboards Refrigerator and the exterior of other white goods Windows Mirrors Radiators Pet bowls Sink  Bath Toilet bowl spray – use after each flush to minimize limescale build up Toilet seat, lid, pedestal Plant leaves Damp dusting of electrical goods and light sockets – the Soapnuts have a degree of anti-static qualities, which means your computer screen won’t get dusty so quickly Damp dusting of household ornaments Terracotta and porous surfaces such as a Clay Amphora Water Purifier – an oil based soap could block the pores, so we always use Soapnuts to these and any clay cookware Containers used for fermenting and brewing such as kilner jars, demijohn, fermentation vessels Cars, bikes, motorbikes including windows, wheel and hubs Tooth Cleaning – rinse afterwards Hair washing – don’t let it get in the eyes as it will sting, but very good for washing greasy hair.

Hemp Oil Soap Uses

Soap works with heat, agitation, time and water. As we leave the hemp oil soap as a concentrate, most of the time a little water is used with the Hemp Oil Soft Soap to activate it. For heavy duty jobs, apply the Hemp Oil Soap and give the soap time to work before rinsing it away. Being a soft soap, the Hemp Oil Soap can be diluted in hot water to for cleaning large surfaces such as floors. There are many cross overs between the tasks that the Soapnuts and Hemp Oil Soap can do, so I’ll list the tasks that only the Hemp Oil Soap can achieve:

Hemp Soap Can Clean

Burnt saucepans – add hot water and 1-2 teaspoon of Hemp Oil Soap, return to the heat and stir the burn away with a wooden spatula. Finish the task at the sink with a Scrubby Roasting tins – use with a Scrubby Fridges – clean up surfaces with rotten food and slime The Kitchen Sink – use with a Scrubby – removes tea and coffee stains, removes grease and cleans drainer plugs The Cat Litter Tray Traditional Floors – such as flagstone, ceramic, painted wood – used diluted Glassware – I used it to clean oil out of glass jugs, but it need rinsing well and then drying and polishing. Apart from these cases, I’d normally use Soap Nuts to wash glassware because there is no need to rinse Leather – Sofas, chairs, leather car seats Plastic – including plastic car interiors – do not use on control peddles unless you rinse every trace away in case they become slippery in wet weather. Hint, the scrubby cleans all the trim details, but wring it well and hold a damp dish cloth behind it to prevent drips. Please read more about the Scrubby below • Tack and Harness, Dog Leads and Collars – use with Macho Fina Sponge Leather clothing use with a silk Fina sponge Teapots – use with a Scrubby Plant saucers and metal or ceramic plant pot containers Painted Windowsills Outdoor Furniture Bird Feeders Pre-treatment of grubby Cuffs and Collars Wet the soiled area, rub or scrub in the Hemp Oil Soap roll it up and leave for a while. Assess – can it now go in the washing machine or go through the hand wash, or does it need another application? Shaving – gives a great wet shave, reducing shaving rash and ingrown hairs Exfoliating – remove the dry and dead skin which can’t be moisturised – use with Copper and Nettle Exfoliating Glove Hand and Nail Hygiene Gardener’s and Mechanics Hand Soap My husband dips the end of screws into the soap and says they are much easier to drill in Breadboards clean and deodorize. Nobody likes their marmalade and toast tasting of garlic heh! Cast Iron Frying Pans – it cleans and deodorizes cast iron.

Scrubby Techniques

The Scrubby can be used wet or dry, but for cleaning I normally use it wet.

Uses of a Dry Scrubby

Sweep up some breadcrumbs Gather pet hair off the floor or carpet De-bobble / remove piling from woolen jumpers.

Pairing up a Scrubby with a Dish Cloth

For many cleaning tasks I hold the Scrubby with a cotton dish cloth behind it. So, for example I would use the Scrubby with the dish cloth behind it to clean the shiny front of my fridge. Then turn the cloths both over so that the dish cloth can do the final wipe to absorb any drips, prevent water marks and leave a dry shiny surface.

Wet Cleaning with a Scrubby

Washing Up with Soapnut solution or Hemp Oil Soap Cleaning washable counters and work surfaces The Sink The Taps The Draining Board The Fridge Interior The Hob Surface Grease and Spills from the Oven, the Oven Racks and the Door The Cooker Hood Sticky cupboard and fridge tops, mixture of grease and dust – use with Hemp Oil Soap Walls – best with Soapnut solution so the surface can be repainted, but don’t rub too hard because the paint is softer than the Scrubby Floors and Skirting Boards Windows – good for removing mineral films – use with Soapnuts Exterior paint work – use the Scrubby with a gentle pressure Washable surfaces on Boats, Yachts, Caravans – again do test the surface in a discrete area to make sure the Scrubby is suitable Animal Feed Bowls and Buckets Detail Cleaning at junctions between the skirting board and floor, the toilet pedestal and floor, around table legs etc Outdoor Furniture Many of the cleaning tasks listed above.

Once you get a Scrubby in your hand you will want to try it for all sorts of cleaning tasks.

Walnut Shell Powder Uses

Add a sprinkle of the Walnut Shell Powder at point of need: Cleaning exteral window covered in mineral film / haze  Cleaning the Shower Screen  Cleaning stains off the sink

Well I think that must be 99% of your household cleaning tasks!
