Instagram photo by reshape_your_wasteLaundry time! My favorite way to do my laundry is soap nuts and lemon skin. It is a great way to keep your clothes clean, fresh, protect the environment from the chemicals that are in the ready detergents, avoid plastic and make your laundry much cheaper. Soap nuts were used in India and Nepal for ages. They contain natural detergent: saponin. When soap nuts shells are in contact with water they release natural soap. They are safe for allergic people, they keep your clothes in good condition longer, make the materials after laundry soft and clean. The water after laundry can be used to water your plants so it certainly is not dangerous for the environment. They leave no smell bad or good so I like to add lemon skin. I use a lot of lemons all the time so I just put used skin in the fridge and use it when it is laundry time. They leave great, fresh smell. If you want any particular smell you can add essential oil. I simply put 5-6 nuts and 1 lemon skin in the cotton bag and put it directly inside the washing machine. I reuse nuts even up to 8 times and sometimes reuse the lemon skin if it still has its smell. For hard stains and white clothes add a bit of baking soda. You can buy them online or in zero waste shops. :) #zerowaste #berlin #zerowasteberlin #noplastic #plasticisbad #zerowastestyle #notrash #reuse #reduce #rethink #remake #gozerowaste #sustainableliving #sustainable #naturalway #makenotrash #minimalist #nochemicals #soapnuts #orzechypiorace #reshapeyourlaundry
