A Wife Loved Like The Church

Washing dishes by hand – a dirty love story {and GIVEAWAY!}

Posted on: July 29, 2010

When we bought our home, we knew we were going to be without a dishwasher. And while I been totally okay with hand washing dishes, I’ve been less than okay with my dish soap options. I don’t think my standards are too high: must be earth friendly, must last through a full washing. Yet, I’ve gone through countless products to no avail. But then, like a clear {earth friendly} ray of light, I found Green Works. A-maz-ing.

Why do I love Green Works?

1. It stays bubbly. For what ever reason, all the soaps I try don’t stay bubbly, making it impossible to clean a sink full of dishes without always adding more soap {can you say money waster?!}

2. It actually removes grease. A certain soap product {that shall remain nameless} that I recently used left my oily pans still very, very oily. Yuck. Green Works? Never had a problem. Plus it stays bubbly.

3. It’s plant derived and lists ingredients. If I’m using a non-homemade cleaner, I want to know what’s in it. Especially if it’s possible that residue could be left and it’s ingested. Plus it uses essential oils that make it smell really, really good. Oh, and it’s stays bubbly {clearly, I like bubbly soap}.

Because I love Green Works so much, I thought I’d do a giveaway!

I’ve not tried GreenWorks yet, and I’d love to!

I’m looking for a new dishsoap, and after your review I think that this one might just be the winner! 🙂

I can’t really win this one, but it sounds dreamy, especially since I have to wash all my dishes by hand every day!

p.s. (not an entry) I got the book, and in a rash moment allowed my m-i-l to borrow it (why do I always do that??!!) so now I have to wait til I get back to TX…foolish. I am so excited, tho!!! THANK YOU so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!
