I've been on the hunt for a zero waste toilet cleaner that was both easy and fun to make. Because, lets face it, who likes cleaning toilets? Well, I finally found a recipe I can wholeheartedly enjoy: Citrus toilet fizzies. They're so simple to make, easy to use and leave behind such a nice smell in the bathroom. Plus, it's really fun to watch them fizz up when you plop them in the toilet. If you love bath bombs, you'll love using these. 

Zero Waste Almond Milk + 5 Ways to Use Almond Pulp

I finally decided to give in and make some zero waste almond milk. Normally, I stick to making cashew milk (it's quicker and doesn't require any straining), but I wanted to switch things up. So, I went to the bulk food store, grabbed some raw almonds, and got busy. This is my first time making almond milk, and I think it turned out pretty good. It does require a lot of patience and straining, but once you taste that almond milk it's like "oh, right, that's why people do this." It's just so good. The only problem is figuring out what to do with the leftover nut pulp. Thankfully, that stuff is pretty useful and there are a bunch of recipes you can use it in, believe it or not. I'm planning on turning mine into almond flour, or turning it into almond pulp hummus. At the end of the article, I talk about more ways to use almond pulp so be sure to check that out. You don't want to go wasting it - it's very useful!
