We have been looking for house cleaning items that do not use plastic but rather use natural products and have found the following so far.
A pan cleaning brush that is made of wood, a metal handle and natural bristles. I understand that you can replace the head. We got it from The Deco Shop, 37 Heol Maengwyn, Machynllyth. Near Dyfi Wholefoods.
A scrubbing pad that is made completely of cotton. It’s very coarse so is good for scouring. We got that from the Old Bakery Cookshop, 22-24 Eastgate, Aberystwyth. The same street as Treehouse shops.
An alternative to this is a Loofah scrubbing sponge that you normally use in the bathroom. Available in many chemists.
I am looking at experimenting with alternatives to the chemical ridden kitchen and bathroom cleaners but have yet to test them satisfactorily.
