I have more, I have books on this sort of thing, so if there is something someone wants to clean etc, and is not sure, just hit me up with a question, I will endeavour to find the answer! lol

Lady_Tahena,

do you have a website or address for that company that sells the eco cleaning products? I haven't found one yet that I like.

Appreciate it, thanks, Linda

I was doing the same thing, eco friendly products in the store are not cheap, and not really that friendly all considering.

I have used castille soap where a detergent is needed. and of course baking soda and home made vinegar.

However, I have to admit that I did find a US based company that does have great eco friendly cleaning products, even concentrated and uses refillable bottles, and has been doing this for 25 years now (they were green before green meant ecofriendly!) ... I don't always have time to make my own cleaners, so it's nice to have these products on hand. Never did have success making laundry soap however.. the one I use now is biodegradeable, 1 tbsp does an extra large load, and in a plastic bottle that uses much less plastic than the store bought stuff...

Other things you can use for cleaning : if you are still using a microwave, put a lemon in some water and microwave on high for 5 minutes, then wipe out your microwave (cut up the lemon first, or use one that you've juiced so you aren't wasting it per say)... it not only cuts the grease, but deoderizes your microwave.

As for airfreshners, vinegar is the best, you just put a bowl of it out in the rooms to be deoderized, and it goes to work, and no it really doesn't smell that bad.

Borax is incredible, find it in your laundry aisle. Use it in stainless steel sinks to remove even the toughest stains, tea included. It's mildy abrasive. Also good in laundry to boost your cleaners... it's natural, so safe for septic and environment too. Can use it to kill roaches and other crawly insects... (mix 1 part borax with 1 part sugar and 1 part flour and put where you have seen the critters you want to be rid of)

Banana skin can clean your silver...

There are tons of solutions out there, google it is the best bet. I, like I said, do both, make some of my own and buy some from a reputable company.

Good luck!

I never thought about laundry detergent, I want to make that too!

Maybe someone will at least know where we can begin looking for the recipes. I have tried and cannot seem to find for those two. :)

I've been wondering the same thing! For the most part I use baking soda and/or vinegar to clean everything else, which has saved a ton of money. But laundry detergent and dish soap? I'm at a loss!

My husband and I have been trying to go green for a while, but it is so darned expensive. My husband suggested I find a way to make my own dish soap, but I don't have the slightest clue on where to begin. Any thoughts?
