I am puzzled!!!!!! Why are all the 'in' and 'the' words in red.?is very distracting. There must be a reason, I guess but I can't imagine what.
I use those balls to make a little water-softening mixture with (mind you it only takes one!) Buiy some washing soda crystals and mix them with really hot water, pour the solution into the ball (or make it in the ball), then put the ball in with the washing. It really helps to soften the water!
My mum is a superstar at recycling and to be honest I used to be embarrassed as a teenager...But now even I have started washing out my freezer bags (the good quality ones) and re-using as they last forever!
I also cut the tops out of milk-bottles to use as mini-greenhouses, and I mix leftover mini-amounts of eye-shadow with a bit of hair-gel to let my nieces have some fun "dying" their hair mad colours (like metallic green and purple etc.!)
By the way, what do you do with spare hangers? We found tons of plastic hangers in our wardrobes when we moved and the charity shops didn't want them, so I'm afraid they went in the bin (hangs head in shame)
also with shopping i have still got those reuseable green baskts safeways had for a while and it is great, i keep them in the car all the time
they should bring things like that back as i think more people woud use them now, does anyone agree?
Anyone know what to do with expanded polystyrene packaging? Can it be recycled in any way. There's only so many chips you can put in the bottom of flower pots!! Also, its not so much the small stuff, I use it as packaging. It's the big pieces that come with large items such as our new computer.
