frugal friday

Nearly two years ago, a few months before my son was born, I decided to test the very strange looking soapnuts from my local organic shop.

The whole idea seemed really strange to me but I thought I had nothing to lose and that it would be good or the children.

Anyway, it was a wonderful decision. I'm so impressed by the nuts.

They get my washing clean, they don't have any irritating smell and are
SO cheap. I buy them in 500g packets and one packet lasts for months. Before that I was buying an expensive bottle of unperfumed washing liquid about once every ten days.

I've only used them in my washing machine but you can apparently also but them in the dishwasher or boil them to make an all-round cleaner. I want to try this soon.

I can only recommend soapnuts - good for your purse, your family and the environment.

Please check this site or google soapnut for more information.

I hope this suggestion is useful to someone. Please let me know what you think of it.

Wishing you a nice day xxx
