Tempt Your Tummy.               Things I Think About.               Project Time.

Make your own: an update.

Remember when I jumped on the make your own wagon?   Well, it's been a couple of weeks and I've had time to use my goodies and come to some conclusions.  

  • I really like the laundry detergent.  It's easy to make and it works well.  We are all clean and no one is itching - that's success in my book.
  • I'm not as crazy about using vinegar in my Downy ball.  It's fine and it works well.  I'll keep using it, but if I find fabric softener for a good price,  I'll most likely buy it.
  • The dishwasher detergent cleans well, but I'm noticing that my glasses have a film.  I also have to actually wash my dishes before loading them and in my book that's just not good.  I'm switching back to Cascade action pacs.  At least I'll have back up detergent if I run out now.  
  • Finally, the foaming hand soap is still foamy.   It's a keeper.
If you made any of the items, leave a message and let me know how they're working for you.

I've been using the dishwasher detergent. I don't have any issues with it. I like that the dishwasher doesn't smell like detergent when it's finished. I haven't made the laundry soap though. I will really need to think about how much this soap costs to make. I didn't calculate, but it is good to know it is safe. I usually buy a brand of cubes which claims to be from nature. I pay more, but it's worth it.
