"DANGER" Dishwasher Soap.


By mrr


Do not use any dishwasher soap or any other kind of cleaning soap. It will eventually kill all your plants. If you want to use soap for any type of spray mixture use SAFER SOAP only. Oils will also smother your foliage and your plant will eventually die. I learned from experience.

I dont have a dishwasher, have never used washing up water on my plants. Tap water should be left to stand for
10 days before using.
During a summer drought years ago my son's head teacher fixed a pipe on the end of his bath waste pipe, and filled his water tank every time the bath was emptied.
Presumably they didnt use commercial scented bath aids.

I don't have a dishwasher either, so at least this is one thing I don't need to worry about:)
