From waste-free washing detergent to plastic-free bin liners, we provide a selection of some of the best cleaning products that you'll only have to buy once:

Wool dryer balls

Aside from looking super cute, these 100% woollen balls are designed to be thrown in to the drier with your washing to naturally soften your laundry, decrease wrinkles as well as reducing drying time. A simple tip is to add a few drops of essential oil to the balls to give your laundry a lovely subtle scent.

Reusable laundry egg

Instead of buying laundry powder every few weeks, put your money towards a reusable laundry egg - a small, egg-shaped strainer that is filled with tiny balls of a soapy detergent to clean your laundry, with no added powder or liquid needed. As well as reducing waste, a full egg lasts up to 720 washes - so you're winning either way.

Beeswax wraps

Made naturally from beeswax, organic fibres, tree resin and jojoba oil, these beeswax wraps are a simple and efficient way to reduce plastic-free waste. As an alternative to the common Glad Wrap, these wax sheets are available in a variety of sizes, patterns and colours and make the perfect food wrap. After use, give it a quick rinse under the tap and let it dry before using it again!
