Going green doesn’t have to cost a fortune in fact most green things will end up saving you money! Yes, your probably thinking of all the so called green brands in your local stores and thought there is no way I am paying extra for that green product. First of all, let me say not all green brands are really that green, that’s why as consumers we must make it a habit to read ingredients and use our purchasing power. Greening laundry can be tricky because your not sure which products to choose and often we only learn by trial and error (we prefer success the first time but that’s not likely).

These laundry balls are great and save lots of money too. Here are 2 great options from ReUseIt.

Super Wash Ball (set of 2) $39.95 (1,000 loads)

Nellies’ Dryer Balls   (set of 2) $19.95  (good for 2 years or 1,000 loads)

Chemical Free Laundry Pellit Refill $20.95 (good for 700 loads)

Are you on the search for a product that can multitask?  Plain old white vinegar has so many uses (I don’t recommend taking this internally its pH level and acidity is different from that of ACV) but otherwise there are so many uses and its Eco-friendly and very cheap to buy! Most big stores carry it (wal-mart, target, grocery stores both regional and national across the USA).
