As you may be aware by now, we have been on a journey to fully transform our home to low tox. So far, it has been super easy and super cost effective. Making a few small changes each month makes a huge difference.
Switching our laundry detergent from harsh chemical formulas to Thieves Laundry Soap was one of the small, but impactful changes that we made. Especially since we have also been working hard to purchase organic, eco-friendly and ethically made clothing. We felt it was important to find a laundry detergent that was gentle on our skin and didn't damage our clothing. Plant based and made with no dyes, petrochemicals, bleach, phosphates, perfumes, etc. Thieves Laundry Soap was the easy choice. It also was the affordable choice. Top and front loader safe, and highly concentrated, one bottle of Thieves Laundry Soap can be diluted and split into 3 x 32 oz. bottles which means it's only about $8-10 per bottle which gets us about 60-65 loads of laundry, as you only need 1-2 pumps of the soap per load.
Another switch we made when it came to our laundry was switching from highly toxic dryer sheets to dryer balls. One dryer ball can last up to 2 years or about 1000 washes, so it is not only safer but more economical as well. What small changes have you made that have made a big impact in your lives?
