Rosemary Mint Shampoo

6 oz Aloe Vera Gel
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
10 Tbsp Baking Soda
20 drops Rosemary Oil
10 drops Peppermint Oil
BPA free plastic dispenser bottles

1. Mix all ingredients together. Store in an 8oz glass or plastic bottle.

Laundry Soap


1 box of Super Washing Soda (3 lbs 7 oz)

1 box of Borax (4 lbs 12 oz)

1 box of Pure Baking Soda (4 lbs)

3 bars of Fels-Naptha (5.5 oz) or you could also use Ivory soap

1 container of Oxy-Clean

Optional:  Purex Crystals (28 oz) or you could use Downy unstoppables


1.  Grate the Fels-Naptha Bar.  You can use a cheese grater to do this, but I used my food processor.  Using my food processor I first grated the bar like cheese and then use the regular blade to grate it down fine.  You could use Ivory soap (just microwave it and it will foam where you can just crush it into a fine grade).

2.  Using a plastic tote bin, put a black garbage bag inside of it.  Pour each of the ingredient in.  Mix well.

3.  Place into your container of choice.

4.  You only need to use 1-2 Tbsp. per load.  It is safe for high efficiency washing machines.

Yield: 18 lbs. of detergent

Homemade Cleaner


1 Professional spray bottle (it is worth the extra $1, trust me!)

8 oz. distilled white vinegar

4 oz. lemon juice

2 oz. liquid soap (I use Dawn)

2 tsp. baking soda

10 oz. water

To Mix:

Funnel in all the ingredients, squeeze out the suds, screw on your cap, and go make your bathroom sparkle.

To Use:

Clear the surfaces, use toilet tissue to wipe off any dirt, hair, spilled liquids, etc.  Using the lightest spray setting, spray down everything, sink, counter, mirror, faucets, tub, and the whole toilet, inside and out.  I let it sit while I sweep the floor.  I then use a microfiber cloth to wipe down the surfaces from the cleanest to the dirtiest.  In our house that means mirror, faucets, sink, tub/shower, and then the toilet.  Be sure to rinse out the tub/shower really well so it isn’t slippery.
