The Dirty Little Secret of Your Natural Dishwash Liquid

Is all that grime making you grim? You’ve been scrubbing away but the stubborn burnt-on grease stains just won’t come off! Ugh!                                                                                                       
No matter how much you scrub, the pan just isn’t the same, is it? Try sprinkling some baking soda and vinegar on it. You’ll have to leave it on overnight, but the grease should come off with simple sponge scrub in the morning. Use a natural dishwash liquid for an easy scrub-off.

Don’t have vinegar or baking soda on hand? Soak the pan in hot water mixed with dishwash liquid . If you do this, you won’t have to scrub until your shoulders pop. Lightly wipe the surface with a wire mesh scrub, and you'll see your distorted reflection winking back at you.

Ta-Da! Your kitchenware is shining like the stars!

Cook, eat, clean, and repeat. 

But if cleaning takes most of our time, it can feel quite cumbersome. The problem is getting to that sink full of dishes and finding the motivation to clean them. All you can do is stare at them with contempt.

Here’s something you can do. Rinse off the plates and bowls before you put them in the sink. A simple, quick scrub with water should do. For the pots and pans, pre-soak them in warm water and a natural or organic dishwashing liquid Use salt to help with any grease buildup there might be. Simply rub the salt around the pan with a dry sponge, and you are good to go!

Putting in these extra few seconds will speed up the process of cleaning!

Less scrubbing means no more pruney hands!

Do you find washing dishes meditative?

The warm water, the smell of your chemical free dishwashing liquid in your nostrils, and your favourite music playing in your ears. 

But then, the non-stick pan is lying in the pile too. Burnt grease is stuck to its surface, and there’s no way to get it out without the steel scrub. That means the coating is probably going to get damaged. Oh no!

Here’s something you can do to bring the pep back into your step! Mix baking soda with water to make a thick paste. Spread it over the burnt residue with a soft sponge and let it sit for 15 minutes while you finish the rest of the dishes. Scrub quickly with cold water and dish cleaner and you’re all good to go!

Worried about your special dinnerware losing its lustre? 

You know the special dinnerware—the one you clean yourself for fear that your housekeeper may break it? Are you afraid it's losing its lustre because of the harsh chemicals in your dish soap? What about your hands? Have they felt itchy lately?

The harsh chemicals that are in conventional dishwash liquid s tend to do that. They are harmful to your overall health and the environment around you. While the price of conventional dishwashing liquid may be enticing, they are no more important than your health.
Many chemical-free, organic dishwashing liquids are available in the market today! But I’m sure you’re wondering, “Will they be as effective against tough grease residue as conventional dishwash liquids?”

The Beco Natural Dishwash Liquid is tough on oil stains and has the added benefit of being phosphate, chlorine, and paraben free. 

Your gut hates your dishwash liquid

Some of the most commonly used chemicals in dish cleaners are triclosan, SLES, phosphates, and formaldehyde. Triclosan is an effective anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agent. It also tends to kill beneficial bacteria, resulting in a variety of health problems over time. 

You must have noticed the white residue sometimes left behind after you’ve washed dishes. This residue isn’t always visible, and when ingested, it can lead to serious health issues like colon inflammation and more.

What can you do to keep your dishes and gut free of chemicals? 

Apart from gut health issues, chemical dishwashing liquid can also irritate the skin and lead to skin issues like dermatitis. Don't worry, eco-friendly dishwashing liquids are here to the rescue! 

It’s not easy to make the switch, I’m sure. Especially given how new these chemical free dishwashing liquids are in the market. Not to mention their price point compared to your conventional dishwashing liquid price tends to be higher.

But if you're looking for a safer way to clean your dishes, consider using a dish wash made with natural ingredients. These cleaners are free of harsh chemicals and are milder on the skin. In addition, they do not leave behind any chemical residue.

Here’s a list of ingredients to look out for in dish cleaners when you’re on your next grocery run.

SLS - They are a type of foaming agent that's used to clean surfaces and is found in all types of cleaners. But Sodium Laureth Sulphate can also disrupt the natural balance of your skin's oils and moisture, which can lead to dryness and irritation.

Phosphates - Phosphates are inorganic salts that are often used in dish cleaners to soften hard water and reduce the amount of soap scum that accumulates on dishes and other surfaces. This means that your dishes will come out cleaner and shinier, without the need for extra scrubbing.

The downside to phosphates is that they can be harmful to the environment in large quantities, as they can cause algal blooms and reduce oxygen levels in rivers and lakes. 

Instead, keep an eye out for plant-based SLES and salt in the ingredient list. Organic dishwashing liquids are free from phosphates as well as other potentially harmful chemicals. Because they are derived naturally, they are better for your health and the environment, but they also leave your dishes sparkling clean and smelling fresh.
