Baby products are getting really expensive these days. The hubby and I feel guilty about scrimping on things like BPA-free bottles, pedia care, etc, but, we had to draw the line at a PHP500.00 (roughly USD10.00) per baby bottle wash. We get it that we have to give the baby chemical-free products, but PHP500.00 is still PHP500.00. Yet, we could not see ourselves settling with Joy, Axion, Dawn, or what not.
Good thing we stumbled upon this little booth at the Legaspi Sunday market, which sells organic soaps and shampoos. I don't know the booth's name or the owners, but my previous post discusses another one of its products. This booth happens to sell Pure Soap as well. The soap label reads:
This is the soap to use when you can't allow traces of fragrances, residue, odor or dirt to remain. Ideal for fine china, crystals and silverwares. May also be used for baby's utensils, microwave ovens and refrigerator interiors.
We have been using Pure Soap for months' now not just on baby's utensils but on our regular dishes as well. It turned out to be cheaper than commercial dishwashing liquid. A liter costs about PHP300.00, but it lasted us for a couple of months. Not bad, eh?
