Using a Sal Suds Spray to Clean Dishes

Friday, August 20th, 2010

One of the most basic uses of the Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds All Purpose Cleaner is for hand-washing dishes. However, the concentration of the soap is so strong that it is very easy to get more bubbles than I bargained for. If I am filling a sink, or a large pot for washing a number of dishes, a small squirt of the Suds works well. But I have found that for washing a single item – whether it’s a plate, a pot, a cutting board or a high chair tray – even a drop of pure Sal Suds is more than I need.

Washing Dishes With Sal Suds

Instead, I have found that spraying the item with my Sal Suds spray bottle gets just the right amount. This way I’m not wasting Sal Suds nor time in cleaning up excess bubbles. Also, as a mom I tend to move really fast. There’s always something else I need to do – right now. Even the bit of time it takes to wait for a single drop of Sal Suds to come out of the bottle gets me tapping my toe in impatience. The squirt bottle is much faster, and I just like it better. So I keep the bottle right under the sink – handy for counters, floors, and dishes.
