When I was a kid my mom used water and white vinegar as an all-purpose cleaner.  I had completely forgotten this until a friend spraying her countertop with it brought the memory back.  I try and keep as much toxic crud out of my family’s (including the dogs) food and water, so why not clean up my cleaning products?  There are any number of safe products readily available today, a couple of which I use, but I prefer to DIY others.  Removing unneccessarily toxic chemicals/fumes is benficial for everyone living in your household, big and small.

HERE ARE MY TWO FAVORITE DIY RECIPES:

 

All-Purpose Cleaner (kitchen, bathroom, etc.)

In a spray bottle combine two parts water per one part white vinegar.  If you find you dislike the smell try a couple drops of essential oil or even a squeeze of fresh lemon directly into the spray bottle

Laundry Soap

If this seems like a lot of work, remember this:  Recipe makes 10 gallons total which works out to approx .08 cents per load once you’ve used it all (and it’ll take quite some time to use it all)

1 bar Fels-Naptha Soap (other options Ivory for sensitive skin or Pink Zote)

1/2 cup Borax (available at most Target and Walmart stores)

1 cup Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda (NOT baking soda!)

5 gallon bucket and lid or if you can find it, a container with a spigot is ideal

grate bar of soap and add to saucepan with 4 cups of water.   Stir continually over medium-low heat until soap dissolves and is melted.

Fill a 5 gallon bucket half full of hot tap water, I have a nice big kitchen sink that it fit in, if you don’t have a big enough sink, use your bathtub.

Add melted soap, washing soda and borax and stir well until all powder is dissolved.

Fill bucket to top with more hot water. Stir, cover and let sit overnight to thicken.

***This makes 5 gallons of  CONCENTRATE.  You then add to the soap and equal amount of  hot water (easiest to use a glass measuring cup) to any container, like an empty laundry container. 

-Yield: Liquid soap recipe makes 10 gallons.

-Top Load Machine- 5/8 Cup per load (Approx. 180 loads)

-Front Load Machines- ¼ Cup per load (Approx. 640 loads)
