Cleaning the House-Homemade Stylin’

About two years ago I  started making my own laundry soap.  At the time I also stopped purchasing commercially made cleaning products and started making my own.   There were two reasons:

1) It’s cheaper

2) I wanted less ‘stuff’ in my laundry closet.

We don’t have much storage space in our house.  To get into the laundry/cleaning closet you have to wedge past coats and reach into the nether-lands for a cleaning product because it’s also the coat closet.  Over the  years I’ve organized it and reorganized it but it came down to- I needed fewer cleaning products.

Cleaning the house is a family activity 🙂  We all love it!  Every other Sunday(yes, we wait that long), we rock some weird French pop station from the internet and get our house cleaning on! » » »

Why I should be crowned ‘Queen of Baking Soda’

Dear Arm & Hammer,

You are baking soda.  I know of no other.  A household name and so well respected, your baking soda is a miracle.  No, really, I’m not exaggerating.  You improve my life every day!

How can I count the ways?
