If you are like me, you go to the grocery store desperately hoping to find products and foods that don’t contain a host of toxic chemicals. I mean, I’m trying to clean my house, not douse it in chemicals…am I right? So for a while I bought the “green” cleaning products at the store, but wasn’t too impressed with the price or the results. I had heard of friends making their own cleaners and thought I just didn’t have the time for it. I did switch to using vinegar instead of fabric softener, but that didn’t really involve any labor. I then saw some great blog posts that really encouraged me that it really isn’t that hard, and it is much cheaper. So I bought the basic ingredients I would need….and didn’t do it. Until I ran out of laundry soap and was too lazy to run to the store at 10:00 at night. I looked up a recipe, and it literally took me 5 minutes to make a batch of laundry soap. It probably took me longer to find a container to put it in than it did to make it (thanks to my wonderful organizational abilities…) The soap works great, and I’m proud every time I use it that I did it myself. So if you need some inspiration and some great recipes, I found an ebook from Mommypotamus.com that includes all the research on what ingredients to use and why they work. No Pinterist fails here! There is a free preview of the book you can download with a free recipe. Now, I want to know what you made and how you liked it! My next projects….dishwasher detergent and dish soap.
