Nespresso capsules play unfortunately a major role in ocean waste. The aluminium caps clog landfills and oceans.. 

Nespresso capsules are also not healthy due to containing aluminium.

diy Washing detergent

 

 So easy, you need an empty glass bottle and some ingredients, environmental friendly and cheaper too.. 

 

Makes two liters / half a gallon of detergent (this recipe can easily be doubled):

•4 tablespoons of washing soda (sodium carbonate is a salt of carbonic acid)

•30 grams  of hard soap

•10-15 drops of essential oil

•two liters of boiling hot water

•Cans or bottles for storage

 

1.Grate the soap with a small kitchen grater and mix it together with the soda in 700 ml of hot  water

2.Let stand for about one hour, then add 700 ml of water and bring to a boil. Stir with a whisk and add the essential oil to it. Let the mixture sit for  6-24 hours.

3.Bring to a boil again and add the rest of the water. Allow the detergent to cool completely before storing in a pail or old laundry detergent bottle.

4.Shake or stir before using. If after cooling the detergent is too thick, just add more water. Only 100-200ml are to be used for washing.

5.For extra bright whites add 1-2 teaspoons of baking soda to improve cleaning and prevent graying.
