Reusable Grocery Bags
Reusable shopping bags are a great way to cut down on single-use plastics. You can use them for general shopping and for groceries. However, how many times have you actually thrown those reusable bags in the washer? If you can’t recall it’s already overdue.
Reusable grocery bags can get grimy over time so it’s important to wash them regularly or at the very least, during your yearly deep clean. Check the label on the bag to find out if they’re machine-wash safe. If they’re not, give them a good cleaning with a wet sponge or damp cloth and allow them to air dry.
