I fear this post may fall into the dullard camp but once in a while I do touch base with what's happening in my real life as I plod on always tweaking what I do in a bid to live more lightly. As previously noted I am no saint!
So with taking small steps and regularly reviewing to see what else I can do within my thrifty little world I made these soap balls out of all the soap scraps I've been keeping last week. Grating all the bits, I added a few drops of essential oil that I already had and mixed it all with a little bit of hot water. Formed into balls I then popped them on the wire tray in the airing cupboard to dry. Certainly not a thing of beauty but functional.
Other things I've done have included cutting up some old cotton pjs into cloths to be used for mopping up spills rather than kitchen paper [they've been put under the sink so they're easily accessible] and cleaning a tarnished silver necklace with the dregs of an "empty" toothpaste tube. It's surprising how much is left when you cut them open. I didn't hold out much hope for this old fashioned remedy but it worked a treat....so I can now jettison silver polish from my life. Huzzah!
Who knows where my little green and winding path will take me next!
