Natural laundry detergent – what are the alternatives?

soap nuts - natures laundry detergentUsing a Natural laundry detergent is a great alternative to chemical based detergents that harm yourself and the environment. The residues left on clothing and bedding after washing can cause skin irritations such as eczema, even the ones classed as ‘for sensitive skin’. When washed down our drains these detergents wreak havoc on our water ways and all the fauna and flora that thrive in it.

To combat this ecoo have found Soap Nuts to be the best alternative, it is used by many people with skin allergies and being a completely natural product it is harmless to the environment.
