My boyfriend and I are both children of the 80's, and as children one of the highlights of our day was coming home and watching Blue Peter. I remember as a child begging my mum to finish the washing up liquid so I could steal the bottle to make something .My boyfriends mother fondly tells the tale of a Tracey Island that my boyfriends made as a child - and kept so long it actually went mouldy and had to be thrown out. In a fit of nostalgia, he and I, along with my daughter decided we would make one - and found the instructions online. The trouble was - we needed one of the old style washing up liquid bottles, something neither of us had seen in years - until we took a closer look down the aisles at Sainsburys.
There, on the bottom shelf, was a simple white plastic bottle, proudly proclaiming it to be 'Sainsburys Original Washing Up Liquid'. Paying my 51p for my find, I delightedly skipped home .And then begun the wait, as we washed dishes and waited for the bottle to be empty. Actually, we didn't think this would take long, as many cheap washing up liquids require using quite a lot in order to be effective . Oh, how wrong we were .
The liquid, dark clean in colour, goes a long way, with just a small squirt being sufficient co clean dishes easily, with plenty of bubbles, removing all traces of grease . I was actually surprised by how good this was, performing just as well as my usual brand, which costs 50p more.Sadly, this means we are still waiting to make our Blue Peter Tracy Island, as 3 weeks on, the bottle still has about a third of its 500ml left . But, I've found a new washing up liquid that is much cheaper than my usual brand, so I can't complain, and happily award this product 5*.
Incidentally - if I've tempted anyone to have a go at making a Tracey Island, the link is here : http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/classic/bluepeter/makes/tracyisland.pdf
