When I wrote about food waste on Friday I was reminded that last year I tried a couple of things in an aim to use less plastic, but never reported back on how the plan went
This was one thing I bought to try and be rid of liquid hand-wash in the small basin in the downstairs bathroom.
It didn't last long because after a few weeks - and despite trying to rinse it - it got so gungy that I chucked it in the compost bin.
I am still using these vegetable bags both in the fridge and when out shopping
Although there seem to be even fewer fruit and vegetables to buy loose thanks to the pandemic and perhaps avoiding food being handled.
Another trial last year to try and replace the cheap sponge scourers
This was another fail (and waste of money). It was rather big and if used to scrub mucky cooking things all the gunk just got caught in the fibres - nasty. I use a hand knitted dishcloth for most dish washing and this little brush below usually works after first soaking pots and pans, this was a Christmas gift from a friend a couple of years ago and is still last well. They are easily available now and last longer that a synthetic sponge scourer.
I still use Bi-carb for cleaning the sinks, basins and drainer.
Wonder what other things I can try that are NOT a waste of money.
I'm having trouble with my internet connection again. It righted itself a couple of weeks ago and was showing as being properly connected but has now reverted to telling me it's not connected - sometimes I can get online and sometimes not - all very odd. I can get online on my phone for emails but it's too fiddly for blogging (for me anyway, sure it's fine for people less technically challenged!). So if I disappear that will be why, although I've not a clue what to write about tomorrow so I might not be back anyway!
