I am always looking for products that will allow me to purchase one less disposable product and thus reduce our trash (and regular expenses). Here are three ideas for products you can reuse instead of buying disposable:
∞ Dryer balls: We started using these a few years ago and they work great. You just throw them in the dryer with your wet clothes and they prevent static and help with the drying. They work great and now we don’t have to buy fabric softener sheets! Check out this set from Green Feet.
∞ Reusable coffee filter: This will be my next reusable purchase when my husband finishes the current set of coffee filters he has. You can wash the filters and let them dry between uses. The reviews are great on this product, so I am anxious to try it! Click here to see it. (This link shows just one size.)
∞ Reusable air filter: I am going to have to do some research on this one, since I have seen conflicting information on whether these are good or not. However, my mother-in-law says they have one and it works great. You rinse the filter with your hose or in a large utility sink and then reuse it. No need to change every few months. Here is one I found that looks promising.
Let me know your feedback about reusable air filters so we can decide whether the cost savings is worth it in relation to effectiveness.
