That's a good question!
First, what is "grey water". Grey water is the waste water from baths, sinks, showers and other household or commercial sources (but not from toilets). Because it's relatively clean water, it is reused for other purposes, like toilet water or even watering plants or lawns, reducing the use of fresh water.
We're sometimes asked if the grey water produced from dishwashing with Eco-Max Ultra Dish Wash liquids is safe to use for watering plants. Our answer is: it depends! And here's why.
As many green-thumbed plant enthusiasts know, the needs of plants differ from species to species. Some plants can tolerate changes in soil pH or exposure to elevated levels of nutrients, minerals or other elements, while others simply cannot. Generally, grey water is suitable for hardier plants like grasses.
