Round up and next week's topic

Huge thanks again to everyone who wrote a post about green cleaning last week! It made really interesting reading, and I am certainly inspired to try some more alternatives to conventional cleaning products! I think all of us are making the effort to try and change at least some, if not all, of our cleaning habits. Julia at Marmaladekiss once again wrote an extremely informative post about the dangers of conventional products, and with some great natural cleaning tips too. And Ginny at Sweet Myrtle also gave some great tips for using natural ingredients like bicarb, vinegar and lemon juice. I am sure that this is a subject we'll come back to again, but do let us know if you try out any of the tips and how you get on with them.

For next week, the topic is "Green Grooming"! By which we mean skincare, bath and shower products, make up etc. Are you bothered by what ingredients you put onto your skin? Do you use any "natural" brands? If so, which ones? What about haircare? Has anyone been brave enough to try the "no-poo" hairwashing method?! Do you have any recipes for home-made products or can you recommend any other websites or tutorials? We can't wait to see what you have to say about this topic!

Edited to add: For anyone who is wondering what on earth "no-poo" means, here is the link to tell you all about it!

By the way, if there are any topics you'd like us to cover, or you just want to find out more about, please do let us know!

In the meantime, have a great week!
