Rekindled, our women’s ministry recently had a social evening with Su from Fresh Green Clean. Su is passionate about caring for God’s creation by promoting cleaning with natural products which have a minimal effect on the planet.

Ready for learning and making

All ready to get making

The first part of the evening was a talk about cleaning products we often use in the home, their advantages (clean homes fast) and their disadvantages (harmful to our health and the planet). After a cup of tea and a chat we then got our hands dirty…or clean… making some products to use in our own homes. We made washing-powder, surface spray and floor cleaner. Among other things we used soap, bicarbonate of soda and vodka! We were all given a recipe book to make other cleaning products which will save us money and help minimise the environmental impact of cleaning our homes.

I am happy to report that my clothes, surfaces and clothes are as clean as they ever were!

The end result, complete with pretty labels


The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it,

The world, and all who live in it;

for he founded it on the seas

and established it on the waters.

Ps 24:1-2
