Guide to trash free bathroom and zero waste essentials

The bathroom has been my favourite room to simplify and I have been using these bathroom essentials since the beginning of my zero waste journey. I would recommend zero waste alternatives to anyone, even those who are not striving to reduce waste but want to live naturally, save money, travel light or organise their bathroom space. Here’s how I do it:

I. Have plenty of soap bars ready

I use them for hand washing, in the shower as well as to clean the bathroom altogether. For awhile I used to use it for hair washing too, after series of failed attempts to quit shampoo. Now I only use water to wash my hair and so does my boyfriend. We have been both having some crazy curly times lately!

II. Zero waste dental care: bamboo toothbrush + bulk toothpaste pills

Like most of zero wasters out there I have a compostable toothbrush. I use toothpaste pills with added fluoride that I buy in a zero waste store and do not plan to make myself. I quit using my homemade mouthwash since I realised I just don’t need it.

III. Find the right oils for your skin

I add some oil that I have at hand to my coconut oil body lotion so that it’s not completely solid in the winter time. It is too fat for my face, though, so I use hemp or flaxseed oil for it. Many people use essential oils but I realised I don’t need them and after I ran out of my tea tree oil I didn’t buy it anymore.

IV. Make yourself a baking soda deodorant

I have a new deodorant recipe because I got tired of the old arrowroot powder + coconut oil combination. I don’t like how coconut oil changes its consistency in different temperatures. It is too hard to apply in the winter and too oily in the summer, leaving stains on my T-shirt. Anyway, I wanted a recipe that does not contain coconut oil or any oil for that matter, can be applied with a spray, and is completely zero waste. The previous week I switched to baking soda + water, and it has been working great thus far! I put about a teaspoon of baking soda in the bottle on the left and it does its magic.

V. Get a safety razor and a menstrual cup

I use a safety razor and a bar of soap for shaving. Since I could not find any in the stores nearby, I bought a big patch of blades online that cost 10€ and are calculated to last for about two years. I use a menstrual cup and love it. It is so comfortable and practical, and I don’t need to go out and spend money on tampons.

VI. Rethink toilet paper

I reduced the use of toilet paper by using a bottle of water with a spray on top. It may sound like a crazy idea but it is actually just a transportable bidet sprayer. I still buy the recycled nonbleached toilet paper for other people and occasions.
