Btw I think it’s best to use white/clear vinegar if you do decide to try that as an alternative fabric softener 😘 thanks for all your amazing inputs so far! ❤️👌🏻 xx

Louise Spiteri says:

Thanks for the useful tips, Signe. I use soap nuts (or soap berries). No plastic or rubber containers, and you can boil the used soap nuts to make a cleaning fluid for your counters. The used soap nuts go in the compost. I used felted balls in the dryer, but I prefer to hang most of my clothes to dry, as the dryer uses up a lot of energy. I live in Canada and in a condo, so hanging clothes outside is not an option, between the cold weather and condo laws. I use a foldable drying rack that can hold many heavy items and keep it indoors: https://www.clotheslines.com/twist-portable-folding-clothes-drying-rack

Det hedder "limescale" 🙂 (Dansk = kalk i vandet) mærkeligt men sandt hehe

Jeanette says:

Such a great tips and looking at the website now and really happy that the website works in Sweden too 🙂 I want to change to a more of a slow waste lifestyle.

Barbara Amato says:

Wash pants and shirts inside out because 1. Most of the dirt is on the inside which come from body oil, perspiration and dead skin. 2. This reduces friction especially for knits and synthetics. 3. Use a mesh bag for delicates.

Barbara Amato says:

For dry cleaning Use Dryel. In between dry cleaning, your dry garments go in the dryer in a bag which separates it from other clothes. Freshens as it dries. For clean boosting, use OxyClean which also reduces build up of greying of whites and pastels. Acts like a non-chlorine bleach.For extra bright whites, use old fashioned blueing. I use cold water for colors with a little bit less than the recommended amount of detergent. I prefer Seventh Generation or ECOS. I prefer ECOS. Or if too pricey, use homemade detergent.

MindScribble says:

There is a product called Cora Ball which works similarly to Guppy Bag, although the problem of getting rid of plastic parts remains I just thought you might be interested!( https://coraball.com/ ) P.S I am not a rep for them, just super interested in eco life 🙂

Barbara Amato says:

Use Borax to extend effectiveness of detergent. Use water 💦,vinegar to wash glass. Use baking soda instead of Comet Ajax or other cleansers and use newspaper 📰 instead of paper towels.

Honor Flaherty says:

Wow, learnt so much from this vid. Definitely want to try the Eco Egg and the Nappy sanitiser. This is something I haven’t really looked into properly, altho I try to make eco and ethical good choices when it come to consumerism and choice of materials and fabrics that i buy these days. But there’s obviously so much more to consider.

Recently I watched two amazing documentaries about the impact of plastics in our oceans and the materials used in fast fashion and both were heartbreaking and made me angry and frustrating at what we and big organisations, (in fashion and elsewhere) are doing to our planet. We’re poisoning our home. If you’re interested the documentaries were called “Stacey Dooley Investigates – Fashions Dirty Secrets” (which also the included interviews with Vloggers/Influencers, like yourself, and raised the question of their role to promote fashion responsibility) and the other was called Drowning In Plastic with wildlife biologist Liz Bonnin – both on the BBC iPlayer if you can get access to it in Denmark. I can honestly say Ive never been so shocked and appalled by watch I’ve seen and learnt recently. It’s a real eye opener. H x

wanderingmeg says:

Super helpful video! Would love to know how you get on with a guppy bag if you choose to use one!

Nina V says:

Virkelig god video! Så informativ og så forfriskende! Tak!
Skal helt klart have fat i de æg til at vaske med. Så skal men heller ikke spekulere på om man doserer for meget eller lidt 🙂
Du siger, du bruger Nappy Fresh med sportstøj, klude osv. Men er det blegende? Eller er det begrænset?

Sophie Oliver says:

Great video on a very important topic. I like to make my own laundry detergent out of only 5 ingredients (baking soda, washing soda, salt, Marseille soap and citric acid is optional if you want a whitening effect) which works brilliantly and I know what's in it. And it is quick and easy to make which ensures I stick with it 😉

Renee Botham says:

I like using products from mygreenrefills.com. They have eco-friendly products and the detergent refills are sent to you in biodegradable packaging so you reduce consumption of plastic containers.

RLK1987 says:

Could you use a vacuum attachment to clean out the Guppy Bag? Dump out most of the micro plastics and then vacuum out whats left and empty the vacuum.

La Lu says:

Hey Signe, First of all thanks for the great video! I was just wondering… have you heard of the Cora Ball? It's a ball you can put into your washing machine and apparently it will also collect the microplastic. I am really intrigued to try it and it could be a great alternative for the guppy bag. I think they also have one vendor that ships from the UK, as the company is from the US, which would make the shipping quite ineffective. XX

LFredz LFredz says:

Great video, thanks for all the tips! Vinegar is brilliant, I use it to clean my kettle and it works a treat. I also use lemons a lot, they are the best natural underarm deodorant ever. They won’t stop the sweat but they’ll stop any odour developing.
