Make your own pantry staples, cleaning products, pet food, health and beauty supplies, and hundreds of other household items-fast, fresh, and more naturally.
Here are low-cost, all-natural replacement recipes for more than 700 name-brand products that you buy week in and week out at the supermarket, pharmacy, or discount store. Save a fortune making your own everyday cooking, cleaning, and toiletry products! At the same time, you’ll fill your cabinets with fresh, super high-quality products that work or taste great-without all the chemicals and preservatives of store-bought versions. Plus, ‘think green”-you will greatly reduce the amount of useless, environment-damaging waste and garbage-spray bottles, jars, and cans. For cleaning, laundering, and polishing, the compounds are much gentler and less damaging to drains, sewage, and septic systems.
The ingredients in most brand-name products account for only pennies of the purchaser’s dollar and rest of what you spend covers advertising, packaging, shipping, and the retailer’s overhead.
