Bi-carb! The best product in the world!
I think it was my first hair cut in about six months. After I had been subjected to the usual "Who cut your hair last? It's uneven." and "How long since you have been to a hairdresser?!" questions, she asked, "What shampoo do you use?"
I hung my head and quietly muttered something about not using shampoo, but Bi-carb instead. She was astounded so I explained we try not to use artificial chemicals or packaging.
Today I am cross with myself. Bi-carb cleans my home (especially my shower, bath and oven), helps me cook, washes my hair, cleans my teeth and deodorises my arm pits! No other product in my home is this versatile!!! Why did I not use this opportunity to educate proudly about sustainability? Possibly I could have won her over to more thoughtful ways of living.
Hopefully this is a lesson learnt and I can do better next time!
