I thought it weird when purchasing laundry tablets that they came in plastic tubs, when many councils still don't do plastic recycling, including mine, so when I ended up with 5 of them I got inventive& pierce holes in the bottom of them& planted them with chillies, using the lids as saucers to catch excess water, they now have a new life instead of going in the bin.

Good stuff. I didn't realise they came in a plastic tub! Bit naughty to call them eco :roll:

I know what you mean. I bought some and the refilled the empty tub with soda crystals that I use to do the laundry now!

It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!
