I know you got some boom.. share them..

Oh yeah and I still need the laundry detergent recipe please!! 

dmc21 --- 6 years ago -

this laundry detergent?
Just made more over the weekend. Used the Zote this time, it's pink. ha ha My son hasn't done any laundry since we made the new batch. I am waiting for him to question the pink. ha ha

There are so many recipes for different cleaners, face cream, etc on Pinterest.

Thanks.. I am glad you posted one that you used.. I was hoping for tried and true recipes ya know.. from someone who has had a good experience with them because so many people also post that they have bad experiences with stuff they try from pinterest.

I have a friend who says she doesn't care for the fact that you can't really smell it days after, like store bought stuff. I still use fabric softener and dryer sheets (downy), so mine has a smell. It's not a strong smell, by any means. My husband seems to think that means it's not clean. lol But his stuff doesn't get fabric softener or dryer sheets. ha ha
I've told you my son works at an oil change place (if you remember lol). He's never said it doesn't get his stuff clean, either. I did tell him to use a bit more on his work clothes, though, if he wanted to.

I have some of the beads, but I don't use them often. I think they are way too strong smelling, so it doesn't bother me that my clothes don't smell strong.

That's right.. I do remember that. I don't mind that it doesn't have a strong scent.. I prefer not to have a strong scent on my laundry soap because I love the smell of downy dryer sheets so having scented laundry detergent to me seems pointless.. I rather save money where I can on the laundry soap and have my dryer sheets too.. lol

The recipe that DMC posted is the same one I've been using for about 8 months. Works great! DMC is right on the fabric softener & sheets. :)

As far as cleaner is concerned. I only use half vinegar and half water. Ill put lemon essential oil in it to lower the vinegar smell. If I use a household cleaner it's only oven cleaner, and toilet gel cleaner. Those are the only chemicals I use in my home to clean! If you look at the ingredients in that stuff and can't pronounce it...it's probably not good for you and may cause cancers. I'm not afraid of my baby or kids getting into my cleaner cabenit bc it's all natural.

There are home remedies for everything. Pour coke in the toilet or alkaseltzer and it will clean it. Use dryer sheets to get rid of soap scum in the bath tub or doors.

I do though love some Pledge. I use that sparingly.

Using vinegar to clean saves a chitload of money!!!

How much lemon oil do you use? It doesn't leave a film on glass? 

BOOM BOOM BOOM --- 6 years ago -

Depends on how big the spray bottle is. I label them for what I'm cleaning. I use more vinegar than water when I clean glass. Etc. lemon is great for countertops, sinks, around the toilet, wood, etc.

Crap. Let me go find it! 

BOOM BOOM BOOM --- 6 years ago -

Do you want a powder or liquid? 

RMof2 (Mod) --- 6 years ago -

Either is fine... I hear the powder is much less time consuming to mix up than making a liquid though. I am all about convenience of whatever is easier to make.
