Bamboo Toothbrushes

Beginning of February me and my daughter opened a new toothbrush and wrote the date onto the brushes. This was out of pure curiosity as I really wanted to know how long my toothbrush would last, as well as our daughter's one.

Reusable fresh produce bags

Well, I have to say that those string bags remind me of my teenage years back in Switzerland. Back then, they used to be hip, had nearly one in every colour to match my outfit.

Can you feel that Spring is in the air? Still cold mornings but beautiful days. I also spotted the first pollen on our car. Which made me think that it is that time of the year again to wake everything up from the "winter sleep"...

Dish cloths

Me personally am not much of a blogger but in this case I'd like to write about this fantastic product. It seems a bit weird to write about such a simple household item, but I feel like it's worth spreading the word.

    Great, though better with essential oil added and doesn't really get grease and diesel smells right out.

    Grade:
    I just bought two of these to replace the one I bought TWO YEARS ago. That wrap was used pretty much every school day, screwed into a ball, doused in butter, vegemite, nutella etc. After two years (might even be three) it started smelling like old butter so I binned it and bought more. That was quite some investment.

    I love these eco scrubs. We use them in the kitchen and bathroom and they never fail to get the grime off. They don't scratch or mark our dishes and cutlery and they're extremely durable. I won't be going back to supermarket scourers.
