All natural, zero waste, sustainable and budget friendly laundry hack that works… Yay for Soap Nuts!
I got mine at Bulk Barn. Cost: $7.00 that filled a 500mL mason jar (enough for about 100 loads) Bag is sold separately!
– Make sure you get one that has looser weaved fabric so the suds can escape, avoid the cheapie dollar store kind – they tend to rip easily.
Hot water is 100% NOT required. I’ve used the cold cycle just fine with my laundry.
If you have hard water, add 1/4 cup salt or washing soda.
For brighter whites add 1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide OR vinegar… NOT both! (danger danger danger)
If you want that fresh laundry smell and don’t want to add chemicals, get your mitts on a dryer ball and some essential oils!
My favourite essential oils can be purchased here: https://www.holisticyyc.com/shop
The dryer balls I use were one of the best gifts I’ve ever gotten! Unfortunately I don’t know where mine were purchased, but you can purchase your own from my fav local zero-waste living company, Unwrapped Life (promo code below). Dryer Balls promo code for 15% off: http://rwrd.io/v9ayaiq
My favourite laundry essential oils: “Balance” – for everyday clothes “Lavender” or “Holiday Blend” – for sheets Roman Chamomile” or “Lavender” – for baby “Wild Orange” – for towels.
What are your favourite scents and blends? So… would you try soap nuts?!
