Okay I have a lot of questions and hope to get some guidance and suggestions.
While we try to be mindful of what we use we could do better. First off do you have any suggestions for cotton (organic preferred) liners and tampons? I hate regular liners because TMI I they make me feel sweaty and gross. I am BFing so have not had a cycle yet but want some ready for when it starts again. I do not want to use a cup or washable liners - I want to be green but that does not appeal to me at this time and think my husband would have a heart attack if he had to wash my bloody clothes. Me as well for that matter!
Next, what about vinegar - kind, how much, how often. Etc in the wash cycle? Can I use it on my 2 month olds stuff like clothes, bedding, etc? I have a top loading but HE washer and it has the bleach spot and a fabric softener spot as well and specific buttons to push to utilize those as well.
What homemade cleaners do you use and do they kill germs and are they antibacterial? I would like to mix up a batch and put in a spray bottle. We use a steam mop on the floor so feel like we are good for floor cleaner.
What about reusable snack bags for my sons lunch and a wet bag for my baby when he starts daycare so they can send home soiled clothes - I do not cloth diaper but I do use Seventh Gen diapers and love them. I do not want them to send his clothes that are dirty in his diaper bag but do not want them to use a plastic bag either so thought a wet bag would be a good option. I would like to get it monogrammed and later use it for the pool for wet towels and swimsuits as well.
For beauty products do you use witch hazel or rose water and if so when and for what? I have and use and love argan oil - pure with nothing else - as a moisturizer on my face and ends of my hair but want a toner as well and was not sure what to use. What cleansers do you like to use or make that can be used with a clarisonic?
Thank you for any recs or answers you can provide as well as any tips for other ways that are easy for newbies to live a green life? Thanks and I truly hope I do not sound too ignorant with these questions!
