I love Pinterest! I justify using it because it is helping me be a better homemaker :) I've been making my own laundry soap for a while, which we use a lot of! It works as well, or better than store bought stuff. Plus I can whip up a two gallon batch in my old Tide bottle in 10 minutes. I've used the same recipe for a while now, just tweaked it a little.
1/2 c 20 mule team borax
1/2 c washing soda
2 T dawn dish soap
1/2 c oxiclean
1/2 c or more of Purex fabric softening crystals
This makes a gallon, I always double it. Just add hot water and shake it up. Then you're good to go!
Today I made some homemade all purpose cleaner. I hope it works great! A friend of mine uses it and shared with me.
All Purpose Disinfecting Spray:
What You Need:
16 oz. glass spray bottle (you can purchase one here)
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 3/4 cups water
30 drops dōTERRA essential oil
1 teaspoon borax
Just mix together in a spray bottle. My bottle is plastic, so we'll see how it holds up. (The oils can break down the plastic). You can check out the doTerra site for suggestions of which oils work best together. http://doterrablog.com/spring-cleaning-all-purpose-spray
And I also tried out making our own detangler spray. We use a lot at our house! I searched for recipes and kind of mixed some together. We'll see how it performs :)
Coconut oil in liquid form
Just mix in a spray bottle and use!
These are going to save us a lot of money, so maybe you can try it in your home! I like saving money!
