Workshop: Green Laundry

August 15, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Want to clean green while saving some green? Making your own laundry supplies is not only cheaper and better for the environment, but healthier for you and your skin. Many store-bought brands are loaded with chemicals and toxins, some of which have nothing to do with the cleansing process. Besides saving sensitive skin, many DIY laundry recipes actually clean clothes better!



In this workshop, Katie Hart of Hart’s Handmade will be teaching participants how to make their own laundry detergent (good for 24-48 loads), wool dryer balls, and “magic” stain remover (6-8 oz). Students will need to bring a 3-cup container to transport the detergent.

Katie Hart is an animal lover based out of Greenwood. One of our most popular soapmakers, she specializes in 100% vegan, small batch, handmade soap and body products. Sourcing locally whenever possible, Katie recently collaborated with Indiana City Brewing Company and Tinker Coffee Company to make some delicious-smelling beer and coffee soaps, available for purchase in our store. Check out more of Katie’s work at her website.
