Dry cleaning is one of my least favorite things to pay for, not only do I know it’s bad for my clothing and the environment; it’s so darn expensive. Being that I work in a corporate environment I have a lot of clothing that is dry clean only. So after reading an article from Big Green Purse , I knew I had to find a dry cleaning alternative and ordered The Laundress Delicate Wash soap.
The company set out to eliminate the need for expensive dry cleaning with toxic chemicals and the two Fiber Science, Textile & Apparel Cornell educated women created The Laundress.
I ordered it four months ago and have been very hesitant to try it. I really don’t have an excuse, except that since it’s been so hot, I’ve tried to only wear cotton. [Read more...]
Hope you had a nice weekend! We have been busy the last couple of weeks. Little Pumpkin Doodle was hit by accident in the eye at day care. She’s doing fine now; I was worried she’d have a scar, but I’m happy to say that I think she’ll end up scar free.

Fashion “Friendly” Friday is where I show you how I’m turning my closet & Little Pumpkin Doodle’s into an environmentally friendly wardrobe by learning to Recycle, Reduce, and Reuse. Last week I went to my new favorite children’s resale store, Sugar Plum Kids. For those of you who are reading this blog for awhile you know that Little Pumpkin Doodle names all her dresses and since she has outworn ”Laura Ashley” it was time to get a new dress. I love this store! The place is clean, it doesnt’ have the stinky resale smell and the staff is great. I happen to have a credit from the time LPD’s nanna was here for visiting for $13.00 (I sold some of LPD’s clothing to the store), so I went to work. Since LPD was with me she occupied herself by playing with toys while I browsed. It didn’t take long for me to find two adorable dresses.
I’m always trying to find greener ways to clean things, especially in the kitchen. When Little Pumpkin Doodle came along I was out of control. I had hand sanitizer everywhere and was constantly wiping things down with vinegar and water. Below are a few easy solutions to keeping things green while cleaning the kitchen. [Read more...]
