Sometimes it’s necessary to wipe up a mess quickly and I like the idea of storing these right in my kitchen […]

March 5, 2011

So it’s no secret that I’m really into natural cleaning lately (especially with the E-Book moving full force ahead) and I just have to share how much I love the TWIST brand. I had already told you about how just one of the Twist European Sponge Cloths can outlast 17 rolls of paper towel, but I […]

I first shared a post for homemade foaming hand wash back in ’09 and I still make and use it all the time. However, I’ve recently come across a great tip that makes it an even better product. I still use one part liquid castile soap (Dr. Bronner’s unscented baby-mild) and 5 parts water, but […]

Even though I use my hair brushes every day, I somehow don’t remember to give them a good cleaning all that often. I noticed recently that they were getting quite dusty and dirty so I decided to try out a natural cleaner on them. I could have just bought new brushes, but didn’t want to […]

I ran out of liquid soap this weekend and had to come up with a quick (yet still healthy) replacement.  With the farmer’s market closed for the season and very limited options at the health store, it was time to whip up a homemade recipe for foaming soap. I happened to have an empty foaming […]

Home Uses for Vinegar

December 14, 2009

Vinegar is a great cleaning product (as you may remember from previous posts on using it to wash linoleum floors, windows, cat litter boxes, etc. It is an inexpensive, versatile household cleaner and I’ve recently come across a website sharing many more uses for white distilled vinegar than I’d ever thought possible (1,001 to be […]

Baking Soda Money Savers

August 12, 2009

We’ve all heard of using baking soda for baking and for deodorizing but it can also be used for cleaning, heartburn relief, and more!  The best part is, because the only ingredient is Sodium Bicarbonate, baking soda is an environmentally friendly and relatively inexpensive product.

I’m sure that any cat owner can relate to the constant maintenance required and the difficulty in trying to keep it clean. Luckily, there’s a natural cleaner to help ensure […]
