One mention of elderberries, and I am transported back to rural Ireland where we lived for several years on a smallholding. Our land boasted a geriatric elder tree complete with moss-covered branches with dead bits that fell off when you so much as looked at them. And yet it was covered each season with elderflowers which later gave way to small bluish black berries. I used both the flowers and the berries in wine, cordials and jellies, and I still remember the heady muscatel-like scent of the blossoms on a rare sunny West Coast day.

So the idea of elderberry as an essential ingredient in dish wash really intrigued me. I took the lid off and checked the smell first - quite subtle, not the overpowering scent you get from the fresh product. I had some particularly greasy dishes left over from a barbecue meal so this would test out its efficacy. I had pre-soaked the worst pan (which was flecked with burned on garlic) but it was still going to be a challenge.

The first sink full consisted of plates and cutlery, nothing too demanding. I put them into the drainer, noting that the water in the sink was still relatively clean looking and that there were plenty of bubbles remaining on the surface. Into the water went the oven dish, the frying pan, a metal fish slice, and a wooden spoon. Then I waited to see if the water would change colour and the bubbles disappear.

I have to mention here that I have had some bad experiences with "environmentally friendly" dish wash liquids in the past. They may have had pretty packaging and claimed to contain a variety of natural ingredients, but the main purpose of a dish wash is to clean, and some I have tried did not deliver in this area. So, while I was willing to give this product a fair trial, I was not holding my breath.

I left the items in the sink to soak for a few minutes then removed them one by one and scrubbed them with steel wool. The wooden spoon and fish slice were perfectly clean; all traces of grease and soot had gone. Even more encouraging was the state of the water - it still looked reasonably clean. Next was the frying pan. This took a little more scrubbing, but then it too emerged clean and ready to go back into service.

Finally the oven tray, survivor of many barbecues and sooty adventures. By now the water was quite murky but I scrubbed diligently and the result was acceptable. Not completely clean, but well on the way to an acceptable level of finish. It might need another soak and then a further scrub, but I was pretty well satisfied with the outcome.

After two sinks of washing (all with the one dose of dish wash liquid) I was relieved to note that my hands had survived without any sign of irritation or discomfort. With some brands I have had to resort to using gloves, but it does not appear that it will be necessary with this variety. I will certainly buy it again.
