- Earth-Friendly : Every time you switch a throw-away product for its reusable version you're preventing it from ending up in landfills.
- Economic: The costs of such products rapidly pays off (even better when using homemade free version using old rags you already own).
- Healthy: Gentle & soft on your skin these products won't present any of the chemicals used during the manufacturing process.
I scoured the web (mostly french & swiss) to find reusable cottons pads to replace my throw-away version and came across les kits eco-belle by Les Tendances D'Emma, a brand that I a rapidly became a huge fan of!
Each set comes with a mesh bag to throw in the washer and you can pick from either a bio pouch or a wooden case. I went for the pouch set along with the multi-uses debarbouillettes set which I split between the bathroom where I use them as cleansing/facial pads with natural toner while the rest of them replaces kitchen towel rolls.
Looking for an equivalent available in the US, I came across a recommendation for these Imse Vimse Organic Cotton Cleansing Pads which are currently out of stock but the brand seems to be carried by Sears. If you find them before I get back to the US please let me know what you think :-)
The best option , which I'll try if I end up needing more pads is to make your own version (several tutorials are available online if needed like the one at Environcraftines.
