i decided i wanted to give this a shot, so i got some recipes from a friend and went to the store for supplies. i am sharing the two that worked the best for me.
i use this for my counters/tables/bathroom vanities
- 1/2 teaspoon of liquid castile soap
- 1 teaspoon borax
- 1 teaspoon washing soda
- 1/2 cup white vinegar
- 2 cups hot water
- 25-30 drops of essential oil (i used tea tree)
just mix all the above ingredients and store in a spray bottle to use when needed.
powder laundry detergent
- 1&1/2 cups borax
- 1&1/2 cups arm and hammer washing soda
- 1 bar of zote laundry soap, grated
grate the soap into a container, then add the borax and washing soda. try not to breathe it in, while doing this. mix well and store in airtight container. use 2 tablespoons per load.
