Apart from the obvious of washing up, have you ever thought about what else washing up liquid is good for? It is a fab multipurpose product which you can never get bored of due to the array of scents to choose from! Read on to find my top 10+ uses of washing up liquid:
🍋 Rug and Carpet clean or freshen up- Dilute with some warm water, foam up and use this foam as a cleaner. For stubborn stains apply a tiny bit directly to stain and use a slightly damp cloth to rub in and remove stain.
🍋 Hair Brush Cleaning- Clean hair brushes in a diluted solution with water.
🍋 Floor Cleaning- add a drop to your bucket of hot water for a grease busting floor cleaner. Just make sure it’s not too sudsy as this can leave streaks.
