Dark greens have long been campaigning on the environmental evils of disposable napkins but now they’ve gone a step further – reusable cloths instead of loo paper.
Should you have the stomach for it you could follow the link above for instructions on how to store clean and used cloths and then comes this advice on laundering:
Wash in hot, dry in the dryer. You may add whatever laundry additives you desire – chlorine bleach, oxygen bleach, tea tree oil, lavender oil, stain remover, whatever.
And that’s raises the question – would all the energy, water and the production and disposal of additives requried for the washing and drying be any better for the environment than loo paper?
I don’t care what the answer is because resuable bum wiping cloths are several green steps too far for me.
