diy dishwasher detergent
This stuff is awesome! Never have my dishes been so clean, and I don't have to worry about those nasty toxic chemicals. The ingredients can be used in so many homemade cleaning and self care products, so already having the items in the house means this is super cheap and easy to whip up a new batch when I run out! I find this even gets the dishes clean when there is a little bit of stuck on food still on them when they go in the dishwasher...
Homemade nontoxic laundry detergent
Did you know that many household cleaning products can be made very easily and cheaply with products you may already have in the home? I find that these homemade products, in addition to being non-toxic, often work much better than their chemical counterparts! I stopped buying toxic commercial laundry detergent in favor of an all natural laundry detergent, but still felt like I could get even more eco-friendly while saving money, so I decided to make my own. Now not only do I have soft, fresh smelling clean laundry for pennies on the dollar, I reduced my plastic container consumption! This detergent is safe for high efficiency machines.
