My in laws are having money issues. so when I noticed she was almost out of laundry soap, had no dish soap, and very little hand soap I made a suggestion. I told her she could save some money but just making those things at home. if she spend less then ten dollar she would have months worth of those things and it would safe her money. she then said that shit dont work and your house is not clean without using strong chemicals. 

does this make my house and laundry dirty?

No I don't use soap on everything and I certainly don't use harsh chemicals. My house is clean.

No some people just don't believe that the homemade stuff works.
My mom would react the same way.

I think she meant your as a general term. She is older and probably has the mindset that you need to bleach and Lysol everything. She wasn't putting you down.

Maybe...but I'm sure it wasn't personal. People get weird about their cleaning supplies. My granny cleans everything with bleach & pinesol. She would never even consider using anything else.
