At Soap & Glory, we sell an awful lot of Shower Gel.
So when – in a ‘Greening’ meeting last year – A Sustainability Specialist told us that the big problem we’d all be facing in the not too distant future was water shortage, it hit home that we should try to get people thinking about showering responsibly.
So we got out a stopwatch, and worked out that you only need about one hundred and twenty seconds of running water to get washed, shampooed, conditioned and rinsed. Then we gave the concept a catchy name –
Code name: the 2-minute rinse.
And while a good number of Soap & Glory loyal has been ‘rinsing’ religiously since we first introduced the idea last September, we thought it was time to officially open it up to everybody.
You can do it too. All you need is 2 minutes.
Here’s an easy ‘technique’ from Alex, our in-house 2-minute rinse expert. She does it like this:
1) 40 seconds of running water to warm up and get ‘All over watered’. Then turn off the tap.
2 )Scrub on a handful of shampoo, then your shower gel. Rinse for 40 seconds. Tap off again!
3) Massage on your hair conditioner (If you use it). Scrub your feet with a brush.
4) Rinse for 40 seconds. Tap off.
5) You’ve done it!
