Re: Laundry balls

Re: Laundry balls

Your right they don't say much about the details like what is in them or if the materials are eco friendly ie recycled plastic. I found one site that says the granules are ceramic http://www.grownupgreen.org.uk/features/?id=802 Another says they contain Higher alkyl sulfate, non-ionic surfacant, sod...

I'd forgotten the honey thing until recently when I burnt my right hand and had a wound go septic on my left hand. Honey under the badages worked magic :cheers: . Rehydration drink: 2 cups of water, juice of 1 lemon, 2 pinches of salt, 2 teaspoons of honey. Sip often. Replaces lost salts like MrsD'v...
