I make laundry detergent and carpet powder. 

Laundry detergent-

1 bar fels naptha grated
3 cups washing soda
3 cups borax

I mix it all together and keep it in a container with a lid.  I like to melt mine on the stove, otherwise there seem to be bits of the grated soap that don't completely melt in the wash.  I take about a quarter cup of the mixture and add it with a mason jar full of water.  I also buy the Purex Crystals and add them to the washer for a nice scent. :)

Carpet powder is just baking soda.  I like to add cinnamon or nutmeg to the powder for a nice autumn scent. :)

i have made a few....window cleaner and toilet/bathroom cleaner. i dont have the measurements memorized but window cleaner is rubbing alcohol, water, and vinegar....toilet/bathroom cleaner is vinegar, lavender essential oils, and water. Pretty sure! I just clean out empty spray containers and use those.
