Back To Basics Product Information & Uses


Shampoos, Conditioners, Hand/Body Washes


Product Multi-Use Applications


As hot water is said to be the best germ killer, we recommend its use where appropriate.  A sponge or cloth wrung out in hot water will increase the efficiency of any cleaning product and minimize product use.


Heavily Soiled Areas, Stove Tops, etc.:

Try 1 drop of multi-purpose liquid on a damp cloth.  If stains are heavily baked on, use a small amount of bicarb soda with multi-purpose liquid.


Antiseptic Toilet Cleaner:

To make up yourself, mix 100mL multi-purpose liquid with 5mL tea tree.  Add water to make 1L (or use vinegar instead of water for heavy duty cleaning needs).


Wool Wash:

Excellent for washing all clothes, especially for jumpers, baby clothes, blankets and other clothing items that needs special care.


Other Uses for Vinegar:

Did you know that vinegar used as a final rinse for clothes acts as an anti-static?  Also, for people with skin sensitivities, vinegar as a final clothes rinse will help prevent skin irritations.  Used undiluted, vinegar is great as a window cleaner.  (Use newspaper instead of a cloth to clean windows.)


Garden Spray:

To help rid your garden of aphids, thrip, etc. mix ¼ cup multi-purpose liquid with ½ liters or water.  Spray on affected plant.  Rinse with water from the garden hose.
