Case in point: I thought that I would never make my own laundry detergent. Or dishwashing detergent. Or household cleaner. But in the last month, I have done all three.
Call me a hippie if you want, but honestly, a penny-pincher would be a more accurate description. At these moments in time, I really did not want to make a run to the store. Hence the scouring of Pinterest and the Internet for DIY “recipes”–and I had all the ingredients already at my house! It helped that my sister left a giant container of Borax under the sink from her days of teaching preschool and making “frosted snowflakes” 🙂
(and yes, I rinsed and re-used an almost-empty Febreeze bottle from my linen closet as my newfound spray bottle)
Without further ado, here are the links I’ve used so far:
- Laundry detergent (I used the liquid form because I didn’t feel like grating soap)
- Dishwashing detergent
- All-Purpose Cleaner
