Homemade Laundry Detergent for Sensitive Skin

It’s good to be back! Wow, I didn’t know how having a second child would take away all your time. It also made me re-analyze my Homemade Laundry Detergent. When my second child, Isaac, was a couple weeks old he developed some really dry skin on his elbows and it turned into really rough patches. I chalked it up to eczema, and slapped on the lotion. Then I heard about the not-so-natural ingredients of Borax and Fels-Naptha. OH NO!
So I decided to do an experiment. But first I needed a safer alternative laundry detergent. So I just took away the Borax and found a different option for Fels-Naptha,... Castile Soap. After only a week of dropping the old detergent, I had clean clothes and NO MORE ECZEMA! Wow!

Say NO to musty clothes

It’s that time of year.  The time that you go through your closet and put away all your summer clothes (shed multiple tears) and organize your clothes for winter. The worst part about it, other than the whole process, is having to smell your musty clothes. Whether it’s the stored clothes you brought up from your basement, or your clothes that are in the back of your closet, it’s all just stinky.

Easy Oven Cleaning

This is definitely the most embarrassing post I have written yet. I have to admit something terrible. My oven hasn't been cleaned since we moved into this house.
On top of that, it wasn't clean when we moved in, so who knows that last time it's been done.

GROSS!!!! I know, don't judge me.

DIY Draino

So the bathtub was backed up after I gave my daughter a bath the other night and I knew it wasn't from my hair so it must just be clogged somewhere.
I vowed a long time ago to never use Draino again.
That stuff is nasty!! Not to mention, it is not good for our septic system. Even if you don't have a septic system. Everything that goes down the drain goes somewhere, and that is not something I want anywhere. So what was I going to do? Well, I looked under the sink and decided to try some things.
