The last few weeks have meant a lot of time at the cottage. Cottage life is absolutely wonderful.

So many things to love, like this…

What I do not love is that the cottage does not have a dishwasher, and doing dishes is one of my least favourite activities. In the city, I am responsible for the dishwasher (loading, unloading, etc.), while my husband takes on the task of the spare dishes that need to be hand washed.
Sigh.
The bright side was that two weeks without my favourite large appliance provided the perfect opportunity to try the new Nature Clean dish liquid.This Canadian product is made from 98.5% natural ingredients and is formulated with essential oils, not synthetic fragrances or chemicals. I love the idea that there is full disclosure of all ingredients on the packaging, and that the formulas are safer for me, my family and the environment. 
More practically, I can confirm that Nature Clean Dish Liquid in Lavender and Tea Tree does in fact break through the grease and grime of dirty dishes without the use of harsh or irritating chemicals. The product is dermatologist tested, and did followed through on its promise to be non-irritating and gentle on skin.
The 740 ml bottles retail for $3.99 and can be found in grocery and discount stores across the country.
While it may not be enough to convince me to start washing dishes by hand back home, it did get me through my weeks at the cottage!
