There is a sense of accompishment

I don't know if accomplishment is the right word, But when I go grocery shopping and I go down the "Cleaning and laundry" Isle and I do not buy anything, I get this overwhelming feeling I am doing good for the earth. I have been making my own laundry soap and getting rid of all the harsh cleaning stuff in my house and using alternatives and saving money to boot! yay!


Anyone else that green cleans get that feeling to or is it just me? LOL!

I want to make laundry detergent and dish soap, but I've not gotten around to it yet.  Maybe I'll do it this weekend...

I still buy my laundry detergent because the one time I made it, I failed.  I do make my own cleaning spray and when my toilet cleaner is gone, I will be using just vinegar.  I do buy dish soap and dishwasher soap and handsoaps.  My shampoo and soaps are organic or homemade by someone else.  I don't remember the last time I bought a cleaner!  Thats good enough for me!!

I green clean and just get the feeling that I'm not exposing my kids to chemicals. I don't feel anything for the earth, I do it for my family.

Your post makes it sound like it's for the earth and money, which are the reasons you cited.

Either way, I use vinegar for most everything. It's fantastic!

I rarely use dryer sheets anymore.  I use vinegar in the softener dispenser in the washer.  It acts as a softener and gets rid of soap residu too.  I never use a dryer sheet on my towels.  The dryer sheet leaves a layer of stuff that keeps the towels from absorbing water. 

Another thing, I have an umbrella clothes line that I use every spring-fall.  That way I quit using the dryer unless I am washing on rainy days.
