This Foaming Hand Soap Tutorial and How to Teach Kids to Celebrate Earth Day Every Day is part of a social shopper amplification for #CollectiveBias and its advertiser. #WalgreensOlogy
Cakes has really been outspoken lately about her desire to pitch in and help out with the housework. Not one to say no to help cleaning, I gave her a few chores which would help out but that she quickly tired of. There’s only so many times you can clean baseboards with socks on your hands before wanting to do something more. I wasn’t ready to let her help with anything that involved more than water for fear of exposing her to harsh fumes from cleaners.
Last week I had some time to kill before picking up Cakes from preschool so I stopped by the Walgreens near her school. I was so glad I popped in because I found a ton of great products by Ology and exclusively carried at Walgreens. Not only cleaning products, but 100% tree-free paper products (paper towels, toilet paper, tissues, copy paper, and more!) and personal care products as well. Ology makes it easy to find products that will help us leave a happier, healthier world for future generations.
Limiting exposure to chemicals isn’t just for cleaning your house, it’s for cleaning your body as well. I wouldn’t willingly slather harmful chemicals all over my children, so ensuring that their laundry is washed without chemicals and their hair and bodies are cleaned without them is so important. Once again, Ology had me covered and I was able to find laundry detergent that I’ll use with my dryer balls, as well as Ology White Pear & Cucumber Shampoo, Conditioner, Oatmeal & Honey Bar Soap, and Lavender Castile Soap. I love all the products the products we picked up because of how effective and affordable they are.
In an effort to rid our home and my children of even more harmful chemicals with help from Ology, I created a super easy Foaming Hand Soap Tutorial for you.
- Fill an empty foaming soap dispenser (that you’ve saved to use again, of course) with water, leaving about an inch and a half to spare.
- Then, add 3 tablespoons of Ology Lavender Castile Soap to empty container. Don’t add the soap first or the entire mix will foam and bubble over making it impossible to get the right consistency.
- Insert pump, tighten, and slowly swirl mixture to combine.
- Wash those hands!
Don’t forget to teach your kids to celebrate Earth Day every day by stressing the importance of recycling. We’ve recycled as many items as we’ve been able to since my daughters were born, but giving that little extra commentary about why you’re rinsing out the Ology bottles (which are made from 100% post-consumer materials) or breaking down Ology toilet paper rolls is super important just to reinforce that message and the message to protect the planet on Earth Day and every day.
The Ology brand is endorsed by Healthy Child Healthy World, an organization dedicated to creating healthy environments for all children. To find a Walgreens store near you carrying Ology, check out the store locator.
