Since when has washing up liquid not been a chemical? ;-] You could
always use Ecover; though I think that soaps are useful against
aphids, rather than fungi.


I suppose it is chemical when you think about it. As you eat from dishes
washed in the stuff, it doesn's seem to be in quite the same leaque as the
killer stuff.

Nonetheless, one should always rinse dishes to remove soap traces. The
Bristol Cancer Clinc (IIRC) claimed that an accumulation of washing up
liquid in the body is a carcinogenic. Apart from anything else, food and
drink taste horrid from un-rinsed plates and glasses!
