Homemade Dishwasher Detergent...already had the salt, borax and super washing soda on hand, so after buying the Kool-Aid, I spent under $1. Dumped a splash of white vinegar in the bottom of my dishwasher. After trying it for the first time last night, I'm happy to say my dishes came out as clean as they do with Palmolive!
Homemade Bleach.. Ingredients: 1 cup hydrogen perioxide 2 Tablespoons lemon juice 15 cups of water Mix together and store in a large jug. I pour mine into a smaller bottles for convenience. Since the peroxide will oxidize and eventually loose strength it's best to use the homemade bleach within a month.
Homemade carpet powder , also a reader wrote:According to a friend, if you add a cup of borax to this mixture it will kill any bugs that may be in your carpet! (fleas, etc!)Another said:I use nutmeg or clove ground with baking soda, and everyone can't find why my house smells so inviting and homey.
Carpet powders are great for eliminating odor and making your home smell nice. Some of them however, can be harmful to pets. For a more natural carpet powder, you can just make your own. Not that those store bought powders are really expensive, but if you have the ingredients at home then making your own brings on its own rewards.
