Welcome to the community! That article has some really great suggestions. I have followed Trash is for Tossers for a while as well. I also love all of the new zero waste reels on Instagram and TikTok! It’s great to teach something new in a matter of seconds.

Not a specific site but don’t forget to look up scientific studies online.

Knowing what is fine and what is not fine when going about our day. Mine is employing soap diluted in water to spray on my plants(mainly citrus trees) as an insecticide. I asked on social media what some people thought about it and I got both positive and negative replies. Since misinformation is rampant on social media, I took to google to find reliable information.

Unless you are in a website that hosts scientific studies, most search results you get are articles. That is fine but going into the sources is great of you want to really understand the the scientific basis. we all know misinformation peddlers always use the phrase “do your own research” which they surprisingly never do.

So back to using soap as insecticide. The following link is not only one study but a compilation of over 250 studies of the most used surfactants(ingredients in soaps and detergents) and it comes to the conclusion that “these surfactants do not pose a risk to the aquatic or sediment environments”. With that, I am fine in using dissolved soap in water as insecticide. But that does not mean we should start dumping our bath/laundry water anywhere.
