Dear Dani and Jo, Thank you so very much for your wonderful Green Boutique Book !! I always wanted to get rid of all toxic cleaning liquids and powders, but I did not know how. Your book provides excellent guidance to all of us we want to use environmentally- friendly cleaning products. I look forward to receiving my second order !! Best wishes, Harry
Bought the Green kit before Christmas and I couldn't be happier, I get to be more environmentally friendly and I also save money in the long run. Great stuff!

Oh, finally I have got around to say a few words about this amazing product (Marseille Soap Flakes) I bought at Brighton Vegan Market from "The Green Boutique" and spread the word that it is easy to respect the planet and stop damaging it with chemicals and tons of plastic. I should say that I have always been attentive at reducing, reusing and recycling..... More so since I have become pregnant and now a mum of an amazing 20 weeks old little girl. As every mum can imagine I want the very best for her. I have been researching ways of looking after her which are chemical and plastic free so that she will be protected and at the same time will grow mind full with a respect for the planet. Having said that now let's talk about the Marseille soap flakes. It's a great product which not only I understand is 100% biodegradable but washes my babies clothes really well. I have used it in my washing machine at 40° and everything was nice and clean and didn't leave a soapy taste on my baby clothes (beforehand I used to rinse the washing twice to get rid of the soap as I was paranoid about my daughter sucking soap on her baby grow sleeve). Now I don't have to do that yaayyy! Also, I have used the Marseille soap flakes with my baby bamboo washable nappies and they are just great wash after wash.

We have always been pro recycling and mindful about pollution, surfing the net we came across The green boutique, we were so happy to have found this web site and we immediately ordered "the kit" with the book, which contained lots of recipes and helpful tips, with the products in the kit you can make your own laundry detergent, de-scaler, dish washer detergent and more, knowing that by using these products you are helping the environment! Well done Dani and Jo...by the way, we like the picture with your cat helping with the packaging!!!
Ever had your dark washing come out of the machine stinking like mad? It happens here all the time, and specific shirts seem to be the culprit. And always, always, only ever the dark wash!! It’s a mystery to me. Thanks to @jomantini from @thegreenboutique_zerowaste , that is now a thing of the past. I follow her tip by making a laundry perfume with baking soda and essential oils. I use the same mix as I do for my home made deodorant, as it smells just divine! Throw on top of the laundry, and wash with your usual detergent. Our clothes now smell AMAZING!

If you were interested in making your own household cleaning products but have been confused by the ingredients or have been disappointed with the results, then this book is for you! The Green Kit Essential Guide by Jo Mantini Page is well researched and offers practical advice on how to use non-toxic biodegradable ingredients to make your own environmentally-friendly household cleaners. In the book, Jo explains each of the ingredients (so there’s no confusion about the difference between sodium carbonate, sodium citrate, etc.) and shows how you can make 12 different household cleaners from 7 ingredients. It has also made me rethink my use of some cleaning ingredients, such as white vinegar where citric acid is actually a much more environmentally safe alternative.
Want to make your own natural cleaning products but don’t know where to start, or not enough time? Why not check out @thegreenboutique_zerowaste new website where you can find this great little book and a variety of cleaning kits like their starter kit, or laundry kit. You’ll discover lots of amazing tips like the fact that citric acid is a greener choice of fabric softener than vinegar, having 53 x less of an impact on the environment and that soap nuts work best when boiled first to create a liquid soap. THiS IS NOT A PAID AD. I’m just passionate about natural cleaning and love what this small business is doing including donating 50p to charity with the purchase of every green kit
