Although I try to produce little waste, and only use eco friendly homemade products, there are still some things I’m yet to get right. I used to use soap berries in my washing, but found they don’t really work. Then my Mum gave me some washing powder and soap flakes she had in her cupboard that she was never going to use. I looked up the first recipe for laundry powder using these ingredients and found it suggested borax. I didn’t think much about it, in all honesty I didn’t even know what borax was, so I bought it. After mixing everything together I noticed my nose was kinda burning 😬 which first alerted me to the fact it’s probably a really harmful product. So although my laundry powder works really well, I imagine it’s not great for the environment 😕 Now I need some better ideas for my next batch! What do you use to clean your clothes?
