Featuring Eco-logic, Eco-nomic, and Just Plain Cool
Hello blog world!? Today is Wednesday.? And you all know what that means — the dreaded Laundry Day.? The day when you reach all the way down to the bottom of the barrel to accessorize.? (And by “accessorize” I mean “find a pair of pants”.)? The day when you are stuck with *that* pair of undies.? You know, the ones where the elastic is so stretched out if you tied it together end to end you could cross the Atlantic. ? The day “coordinate” means that the holes in your socks match.
So go ahead, grab your clothes and toss ’em in!
Add a dash of LiveLaughLoveSoap’s laundry powder, and you’re good to go!? For a front loader like mine, you’ll only use a tablespoon of soap per load — which means this 2lb. bag lasts a LONG time, even if you do laundry in a semi-regular fashion.? At $8, it’s quite an eco-bargain compared to traditional detergent, not to mention being free of all the icky stuff.
Drying clothes outside on the line is a wonderful eco-thought, til you try it in October.? Not only will your clothes be crunchy, but your sweaters will be cold.? And if there is anything? unsweater-like? (and more like oh, say frozen fish sticks) it’s “cold” and “crunchy”.? So put that crazytalk out of your head and get yourself some of these:
zJayne’s Dryer Pillow Sheets are the epitome of eco-goodness, made from upcycled T-shirt sleeves filled with home grown Washington lavender buds.? Securely stitched to make sure no lavendar goodness escapes, you can use and reuse them as much as you like!? At $12 for 3, a sweet smelling bargain.
Set your dryer to bake for 45min., run down as SOON as you hear the buzzer, and put all your toasty warm clothes on at once.
