Low-waste Living, Plastic-Free Living

Sustainable Options for Washing Clothes

I don’t know about you but doing laundry is a weekly chore for my family. We transitioned to our sustainable laundry routine over the course of 2 phases. The phases, washing and then drying, aligned to when product was running low (remember to buy what/when you need).

Washing was our first phase for I really wanted to halt us utilizing detergent in hard-to recycle containers (FYI – plastic #3 and #5 are typically hard to recycle). We have tried various sustainable product options for washing clothes just so we could figure out the best option for our household. Remindersustainable living isn’t a one size fits all action.

We do our laundry at a local laundromat so powder detergent (Specifically Meliora Cleaning Products) is my preferred option since I can put it in with the clothes. This capability allows me to ensure someone else’s fragrance loaded detergent doesn’t creep into our clothes. Trust me it isn’t fun when I have a reaction to a fragrance.

Feel free to ask any questions or input regarding these options.
