Many Mommies turn over to natural products and I get a lot of requests to share what I use. I love making my own because I know exactly whats in it and it makes me feel like a “real” Home maker! My biggest purchases is always Bicarbonate of Soda (Baking Soda), Epson Salts and Vinegar. You won’t believe what you can do with those three ingredients… a paste of Bicarb and Vinegar cleans like no other cleaning product can. I buy it by the kilos and litres so it makes household products very affordable. Here are a few of my tried and tested products:
1. Baby wipes
Many mommies use cloth and I still believe its the way to go but for handy disposables when you go out I buy Mother Nature’s bio degradable and flushable nappy liners (R75 for 100) and cut it in half. I then roll the cut liners (about 1/4 of the whole pack at a time) into a roll and stick it into a re-usable wipes container and pour the following solution over it:
2 cups warm water
2. Roll on
3. Dishwasher Pods
I calculated the difference in price of store bought dishwasher pods :
4. Washing soda recipe:
5. Washing Powder and Softener
7. No more tangles spray
Just add one to two tablespoons of your natural conditioner to an empty used spray bottle and top up with warm water. Remember boiled water melts plastic bottles and leave enough space to shake. Start at the bottom when combing hair and spray on sections before combing through. If the hair seems oily or sticky you used too much for your particular conditioner… Just throw some out and top up with water again.
That it for now… keep in touch for more updates!
