Blackstrap molasses gives a beautiful dark brown colour. I only use it for shampoos for people with dark hair as it does create a lot of brown run off.

Here is an amazingly simple Do It Yourself detergent that doesn't leave any residue on clothing, gets nearly every stain known to man out the first time around and smells clean and fresh- oh and did I mention that it costs about $ 1.76 for 128 loads of laundry? Worth a try!!
Liquid Hand Soap from homemade soap. Instead of using store bought soap use homemade soap. If you don't make soap yourself buy it from someone who does. It is better for you and you have lots of choices. Think of all the wonderful scents your soap makers have, that you can't buy in a store. Guaranteed to be a a delight for everyone.
