What chemical free products do you use ?

Products or home made concoctions.

I am on week 1 of non chemical shampoo, conditioners and soap. I use a baking soda paste for body/face wash and the same paste for shampoo. I use apple cider vinegar for conditioner. Surprisingly it seems to be working just the same as the bottled stuff.

I need to tackle laundry detergent next. I use vinegar for cleaning. It works wonders on glass I was really surprised.

Oh and coconut oil. I used that to get my daughters cradle cap off and as a skin moisturizer.

  • I use a mix of baking soda and salt when I vacuum. The baking soda for deodorizing and the salt for making sure Miss Pepper doesn't bring in any "friends" when she goes outside. The salt has a bonus side effect ... it makes the carpet feel softer.

  • Salt? Pepper? Friends? Lost me there. I do have one room with carpet that I use baking soda on. I have cats, so if Miss Pepper is a cat and the friends are bugs I should look into the salt thing. I want to buy a bag of DE for the cats and carpet.

  • Miss Pepper is a dog and yes the "friends" would be fleas. =o)

  • Cute :) I had it almost deciphered. The DE is supposed to be great for fleas too!
