Ok so its make your own "swarf**a" but the ***le looks better.

Get some ecover "washing up liquid", get some kerosene/paraffin.

Put some washing up liquid in a bowl then add some kerosene, it will become "gelatinous " very quickly .

For most jobs its as effective as the branded product and by varying the concentrations you can make it as jellylike or liquid as you like.

Put into a old tub and keep in the back of your car/van!

At the end of the day wash your hands at the back of your van! so nice clean hands go onto your steering wheel.

ToxicityIngestion of kerosene is harmful or fatal. Kerosene should never be used to get rid of hair lice as it can cause burns and serious illness. A kerosene shampoo can even be fatal if fumes are inhaled.[26][27]
