Lets talk about soap for a moment. I’ve been making lye soap for about 10 years now and I still love it and continue to be in awe of it’s powerful purity and many uses. It’s so nice to be in my bathroom where no bottled chemicals or detergents cover the shower floor. There is only a bar of soap that does it all.
Laundry has become more simple too. The large laundry bar I call Simply Soap does such a good job in the washer. I grate it and blend it with Borax and Washing Soda. My clothes get clean and smell so good as I hang them on the line to dry. I make a rinse to add to the laundry: In a gallon bottle place 2 cups white vinegar fill the bottle half full with water before adding 1 cup baking soda. Add the soda in small amounts as the vinegar will fizz. Then tap off the bottle with water and add your favorite essential oil.
One other thing I have learned is to use baking soda for all my general cleaning. It is so good on sinks, toilets and showers. I keep a container of soda in the shower to scrub the shower doors. It is so easy and the hard water build up comes right off. I had my own cleaning business years ago and used chemical cleaners. I got so toxic that I had to find something natural or die. Baking soda, vinegar and a little grated soap are now my first choices for cleaning.
Love to hear from you.
