I just got home from doing 2 loads of laundry, with a baby, in the cold. Someday I might have my own washer and dryer but for now I tote my stuff about 2 blocks and back each week. One thing I'd love to stop lugging, the detergent. I use Method & Costco brand eco-detergent in Lavender. lovely and earth friendly. But, I am sick of transfering my mega bottle into smaller luggable versions every few weeks. I came across this awesome product today that I've gotta try. It's available at a shop in my neighborhood so I'll be checking it out soon for sure! You can find it online at The Future Perfect

The Ecowasbal is just what I've been looking for. A soap-less ball you toss in with your wash. The ball is filled with little ceramic beads that when in contact with water reduce surface tension in water, activate water molecules and poof, dirt is released. The softness of your clothes is maintained along with the color too! They recommend adding a tiny amount of detergent for heavier-soiled loads (and include a tiny little measuring spoon for that).

This baby is good for 1,000 washes! That's about 4 years worth of lugging, buying and using detergent! Think about the plastic containers you're not going to be tossing! If you want the lovely scent of something, toss a Method dryer sheet in with your dryer and you're good to go.
