I am trying out a new way of washing clothes today, Soap Nuts.
You pop a few of them in the little calico pouch & pop them in with your wash. Apparently you get quite a few loads out of them & then when they are done they can go in the compost. The bonus is that no nasty chemicals end up going down your drain, or onto your garden if you use your washing machine run off. Sounds good to me!
We shall see if they are up to the challenge of my kidlette's clothes!
