Since having children, looking after the planet feels more and more important all the time. I went through a phase of using soap nuts, or make your own laundry gloop – these days I would rather use a washing product, keep the temperature turned down and the cycle short and dry washing on the line or the airer wherever possible. Good for my pocket and the environment, right?
Persil’s focus on encouraging messy play and their great campaigns on getting kids outdoors and active have caught my eye, and I do have to say that the fragrance from the washing liquid is doing admirably in coping with the aroma of teenage boy socks (what is that about? Honestly, I’m not enjoying this stage).
(Looking at the state of that seat cover up close I think I should give the tough stain removal a whirl too. I do apologise. ) And of course, going to hang the washing outside is a great time to get the kids involved, even if their involvement is limited to handing me pegs and legging it to the other end of the garden.
So tell me, what steps are you taking to build a brighter future for our kids?
