by Paul Peacock - £7.95 The Good Life Press (2008)
paperback ISBN 13: 9781904871385 | ISBN 10: 1904871380
Paul Peacock takes you on a trip down the supermarket aisles and shows you how you can make what you find on the shelves for a fraction of the cost: from butter, baked beans and cheese, to curing your own bacon, brewing your own beer and concocting your own deodorant, shampoo and furniture polish. Would it surprise you that the majority of the powder in automatic washing powder is simply washing soda and that this product works better for a fraction of the cost? Or that you can make carpet cleaner for pennies that would cost pounds in a shop?
Discover the simple pleasure of making things yourself and banish the need for recycling by not buying all those plastic containers, bottles, tins and cans from the supermarket.
Precycling is about making the things you need, rather than what the manufacturers and supermarkets tell you to buy, and knowing exactly what is going into your food, cleaning and hygiene products. Your bread and jam will taste better because you enjoyed making it yourself and no amount of money can buy it.
