So, as regular readers may have gathered, the Captain is away. You may remember he was hoping to blog on the go thanks to the marvels of dongle technology. Sadly, his technological prowess being what it is ... (hee hee!) he's not been able to make it work. And you know what they say, while the cat's away ... mwha ha haa haaa. Actually, that's not quite right, is it? But as I've temporarily hijacked his blog I can say what I like. Oh yes!
It's been a while since I blogged here, largely because I kind of ran out of boaty things to say. However, following mine and Tilly's recent brief stopover with the Captain and Jeff at Whaley Bridge, I have a New Thing to say. Actually, it's more of a question really. I want to know if you use any canal friendly soap products while aboard and those of you who do, what are they and where do you get them from?
Knowing that my shower and washing up water drains directly into the canal has made me want to use products that cause as little damage to the water and environment as possible. I can't be the only person who thinks like this but I have had enormous difficulty tracking down environmentally friendly products. Nothing in my local, or even not so local shops, seemed suitable. It also took much rummaging on t'interweb to track anything down but eventually I found Faith in Nature. I'm not over sure about the science but I do like the products and they seem to be the sort of thing I'm looking for.
But what do the rest of you think? Do tell.
