Ditch Dryer Sheets

Disposable dryer sheets contain harmful chemicals and the extra waste isn’t good for the environment.  They are free of chemicals, fragrances and dyes.  Wool dryer balls are a natural alternative from fabric softener.  They help reduce static and drying time by up to 25% and are safe for all fabrics.   Using dryer balls means you will no longer need to purchase liquid fabric softeer or dryer sheets.

You can find them on Amazon with 2 Day shipping for Prime members.

These wool dryer balls are a great way to take green cleaning into your laundry room and further your green lifestyle.  Please let us know how they work for you.

NatureZway Bamboo Perforated Towels

We came across these bamboo perforated towels while cruising the paper products section of our local grocery store.  We  excitedly purchased them in hopes of incorporating them into our green cleaning routine.  Of course, we had to put them to the test first and the results were amazing.

We used them on a few spills and found that they had incredible absorbency. When wringing them out, we noticed that they are also very strong. We tried to tear it but they were so strong that we just could not. We were able to use the same cloth a few times before tossing it into the wash.  The packaging states that they can be washed 100 times, but we haven’t gotten that far yet.

They are made of bamboo, which is a sustainable material, and the lack of waste from not using paper towels is also an environmental benefit.  All in all, We highly recommend NatureZway bamboo towels and you will see them on the field shortly while green cleaning your homes.

Let us know how they work for you and don’t forget to tweet, pin, or share this post.
