I watched "An Inconvenient Truth" this weekend and it got me thinking....... poor Al Gore needs to get over his loss to Bush!( i know the movie was made in 2005) It also made me think of EARTH! I LOVE EARTH! I love the artful hand of the CREATOR when making flowers, animals, water, trees, the sky and sun and how it all works in perfect harmony allowing humans to live and thrive on a big ball floating in space! That's a BIG deal! I do believe in "global warming" NOT because Al Gore says so, an not to the degree that Al says either...however I do think that humans have been poor stewards of Earth....and why, if you are a lover of the earth are you put into some "hippie liberal" box? I love earth because it's a gift from our CREATOR, a place of beauty and life! So with that said I'm letting you in on a big secret.....my cleaning products...they are earth friendly and VERY cheap. I use baking soda for the tub, toilet and sink, then I pour vinegar over it and..... along comes the SIZZLE..... and then I scrub..Yes the vinegar stinks but if Eve comes in the bathroom while I'm cleaning I don't have to worry about her touching anything or smelling the fumes! I also use vinegar for windows and mirrors and all my counter tops!
I use Hydrogen peroxide instead of OxyClean because it's cheaper and the EXACT same thing!
1/2 cup washing soda
1/2 cup borax
1 bar fels naphtha
1 bar fels naphtha
20 drops oil of your choice
All can be found at WinCo
Grate the fels naphtha in a large saucepan with 6 cups of water over med. heat, heat until soap melts. Add washing soda and borax, stir until it dissolves. Let sand for 5 min. over heat stirring occasionally. Remove from heat let stand for 5 min. Put half the mixture in a 1 gal. jug and the other half in another gal. jug (old vinegar jugs work great) fill half way with warm water and shake..fill the rest of the way with warm water and shake. Let sit for 24 hrs. It will gel up! Use 3/4 cup per-load. I think if you use these products you will be very happy with their cleaning ability and...you are making your home healthy and the planet happy!
