Money Saving Ideas-Homemade Household Products

I recently started making my own laundry detergent. I got the recipe off of Pinterest although I believe I have seen it posted here as well. I was really impressed with how it turned out and it will save me a lot of money. This got me wondering what are some products that you have tried to make and how did the products turn out? Was the product as good as the brand name? I am thinking of trying to make foaming soap with another recipe that I found on Pinterest.

I do the same and it smells sooo good. I am very sensitive to cleaners and artifical scents and its been wonderful to clean without breaking out into hives.

I ordered a few essential oils last week, I cannot wait until they come in. I am going to try this cleaner. I also found a great recipe for foaming hand soap that I tried and it turned out really well.
