  1. As a confirmed coffee drinker, I’m intrigued by the idea of using used coffee grounds in the shower (a second wake-me-up method, if you will) rather than sending them out to the compost heap. There’s no long-term issue with long hair and grounds combining to form clogs in the tub’s drainage systems?

  2. Hello thank you for sharing your bathroom essentials, its wonderful, it makes my bathroom look extra cluttered (covering my face in shame)! But now I know better and will work on it. I do have a few questions: what brand mascara do you use, how do you use the long hand teaspoon as a tongue scraper? I just use the plastic ones but have seen metal ones. I love the idea though because i could avoid the plastic and save $ as well. Also, you mentioned the face creams you use, one being heavier and another lighter depending on the season. Do you use them morning and evening, and where can I find them? Im having a hard time finding a good cream that has natural ingredients, is cruelty free, and has all that good stuff.
    Also I love the idea of reusable menstrual pads!! I didn’t know that was even an option, like wow! I mean if babies wear cloth diapers, um hello us women can too!! (Lol, I refer to my pads as diapers, and of course the time of the month I just say “Im on diapers!!” Lol.
    Anyways ONE more question! What about your bathroom cleaning supplies? Where do you store those and what do you use?

    1. Hi Mya, glad that you enjoyed the post. Okay, I’ll list the answers for you below:
      1. I use Dirty Hippie mascara.
      2. I use the side of the teaspoon (linger part) and just scrape my tongue multiple times to make sure I cover my full tongue (rinsing in between).
      3. The heavier one I use is called barrier repair moisturiser in the evenings and the everyday clarity serum in the morning – both from Nourish Botanicals (Australian brand). The serum I use for both morning and evening is warmer weather. The reason I use the heavier moisturiser only in the evenings is that it’s too heavy under makeup. If I don’t wear makeup, then I use it twice a day in winter. Hope that makes sense! Other great brands that I like are OSEA (US-based) or Mokosh (Aus based).
      4. They are great! The brand that I use is Hannahpad. They use organic cotton in their pads.
      5. The bathroom cleaning products are a mix (that I’ve had a few years). I use Organic Clean for toilet (the disinfectant one that smells amazing!) and their bathroom spray for general cleaning. A mould control spray in the shower from Abode which I get from a local bulk store as a refill. I keep all these underneath the laundry sink 🙂
      Hope that all helps!

  3. Hi there
    Interesting read…
    I would like to buy some organic cotton reusable baby wipes…where can I get them from…(actually it is for my daughter to take her make up off with)
    I also want to get a safety razor (we used to use them way back…ha ha )…where do you buy them from?
