A friend told me about this book by Raleigh Briggs. She originally gave me a homemade bleach recipe and said she got it from this book. I hopped on Amazon and ordered it. It’s only $7 bucks new. (no, i’m not being paid for this). There are tons of great homemade recipes for health & first aid, non-toxic cleaning and body care…then a whole section about gardening. Even how to build a raised bed. It’s very basic and doesn’t go over my head. I’m not sure about doing a garden this year…but I have hope that…maybe…someday. I have a black thumb and kill everything green. I may even try to make my own deodorant…yikes! I’ve also been purging our home. We are planning on having a yard sale this Saturday…maybe? If it doesn’t rain and is not cold. I’ve been listing stuff on ebay and craigslist. (That’s the Dave Ramsey in me) So, if we have a yard sale and if you want to come, email me.
Here’s a recipe for Homemade Bleach: (This is a great alternative to bleach when washing your white slipcovers)
1 cup hydrogen peroxide
3 T lemon juice
15 cups water
-mix all ingredients together and keep in a large jug.
