Zero Waste Tub + Sink Cleaner: Orange Soft Scrub

 This zero waste tub and sink cleaner is such a star cleaning agent. I can use it to clean my kitchen sink and scrub my tub clean, without holding my breath. Not sure about you, but most conventional cleaners always make the bathroom and kitchen smell like a hazard zone. I always feel like I have to hold my breath while using them. Not with this stuff: It smells like oranges, and there's no harmful, questionable ingredients to fret over. I don't have to worry about breathing in toxic fumes, wearing gloves - none of that. This orange soft scrub is tough enough to eliminate grime, but also gentle enough not to trigger your allergies. Plus it's waste free. What could be better?

10 Zero Waste Bathroom Swaps

 Having a zero waste bathroom isn't so hard, if you have the right tools for the job. I firmly believe you should use up whatever you have in your bathroom already before purchasing a zero waste option. This way, you're not wasting a product just because it's packaged in plastic. That being said, when you are ready to make a swap, by all means go for it! These are my personal favorite zero waste bathroom swaps, but they are highly recommended. You really don't need that many products to have a functional bathroom. I've cut down on so many products it's not even funny. I'm sure I could cut down on even more, but it's harder to do that while living with other people. Sometimes my folks still buy conventional toothpaste or mouthwash for example, while I stick to my guns and use my DIY options. That said, I've definitely rubbed off on them in the best way possible and because of that, our bathroom is a lot less wasteful now.

Zero Waste Dishwasher Detergent

I've been meaning to make some zero waste dishwasher detergent for a while now. Whenever my mom loaded up the dishwasher, I  always cringed at the detergent she used. It was full of questionable ingredients and costed a lot of money, not to mention packaged in plastic. Surely, there had to be a better way. I combed the internet for an efficient option that didn't hurt the environment, our health, or our wallets. And then it hit me: DIY Dishwasher powder! This powder is so easy to make, it's full proof. Plus, it's an all natural dishwasher detergent that only consists of ingredients I trust and can source plastic free.
