My blog has been sadly neglected lately :(
Last month was very busy with the Great Down Under Nappy Hunt. Always a lot of fun. Spent WAAAAYYYY to much time hunting myself but I really enjoyed looking around at all the talented WAHM's out there and their websites.
At Green Chickadee I've added some more new products in the household cleaning section. We now have soap nut powder as well as the soap nuts themselves.
I found the best way to use them is to make up a liquid by putting the powder in my washbag I got with the unground nuts (you could use a stocking or old sock instead). You then put it into a jug of boiling water and leave overnight. Use 2 teaspoons of powder for every cup of water. It gets the good stuff out without leaving any residual on your clothes and the liquid can also be used for other cleaning like floors, bathrooms toilets. Use 1 cup of the liquid for a full load of laundry.

Also now in stock are Enviroballs. The Washball lasts for 1,000 washes (costing only 5 cents per wash) replaced laundry powder or liquid and elimates the need for fabric softener.
Their dryer ball naturally softens clothes and cuts down on drying time reducing energy consumption.
I'm in love with the stainstick. Smells loooovely and works a treat on my 7 year old son's school skirts which come home in a disgusting state!
With all the testing of soap nut powder and the Enviroballs that have been happening in our house over the past couple of weeks my laundry pile is gone!!!!!!!!!
