i want to be honest and tell you that i don't wash every single load of washing with soapnuts (yet), but i hope to soon. one thing i need to experiment with is achieving a scent in the washed laundry. if you use soapnuts, the scent is very neutral, and i kind of miss the "fresh" smell of detergent (even though i know it's chemicals that achieve it). so i want to try out different essential oils (just a few drops into the compartment where you usually put the fabric softener) to find out which scent i like.
if you are interested and want to read more information about soap nuts, if found interesting details on this website!
are you using natural detergents? any tips or links you'd like to share?
in this line of thought, you might be interested about a simple living challenge held on the Kanelstrand Simple Living blog starting on February 1st. this is how Sonya describes the challenge:
For 3 weeks starting February 1st, we will challenge ourselves to:- Find happiness in simple everyday routines
- Increase self-sufficiency
- Live with less
- Reconsider technology
- Simplify our virtual life
- And much more.
i think it's all about taking small steps at a time. so i decided to join the challenge, for that extra bit of motivation and maybe also to gather some new ideas. if you want to do so too, hop over to the Kanelstrand blog and sign the pledge!
