Homemade Laundry Detergent & Deodorant!

The Mister and I are not ones to skimp on quality. No no, my entire family will confirm my champagne taste. But with things like toiletries and cleaners, I have learned that a high price-tag does not equal high quality. The salon is not formulating their sodium lauryl sulfate better than CVS.

And so, I began making my own concoctions. I’m voting for health with my money. Every dollar I spend on raw ingredients for toiletries & cleaners means less toxins in my body. And wouldn’t you know it, it’s cheaper. Now I’m paying LESS for a better product.

DEODORANT
5-6 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil*
1/4 cup baking soda
1/4 cup Arrowroot Powder
Several drops fragrant essential oil, optional

Place mixing bowl with ingredients over warm water in the sink—EVCO* is solid at room temperature, but melts when warm. Mix until ingredients are combined. Pour into deodorant container and place in refrigerator until solid again. Refrigerating the deodorant ensures ingredients are uniformly mixed and that EVCO doesn’t rise to the top.

Elements Bath & Body has lovely little deodorant containers for those of us who don’t want to reuse an old deo tube. I like the 2 oz. Natural Twist Up, but this deodorant is also easy to apply with your hands. In fact, you can just rub the leftovers on like lotion.

LAUNDRY DETERGENT
1 cup Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds
2 cups water
1/3 cup salt
1 cup baking soda

Warm water, salt, and baking soda in a sauce pan over Low-Medium heat on stove until mostly dissolved—the baking soda will not completely dissolve. Pour into a gallon container with Sal Suds (I use empty distilled white vinegar bottles). Fill rest of bottle with water, and shake well. The baking soda will settle to the bottom, so shake bottle before each use. Use 1/4-1/2 Cup of detergent for each load of laundry.

For a natural fabric softener, whitener & color brightener, and to remove static cling, use 1/4-/1/2 cup distilled white vinegar in the rinse cycle.

(Thanks to Lindsay Edmonds at Passionate Homemaking for these recipes. They work like a dream!)

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re
    using? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    throw away your intelligence on just posting videos
    to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to
    read?
