Save a Penny, Save the Earth

Saving money is something everyone wants to do, but by saving money, you can also save your mother (the Earth) in the process!

The Miracle Cleaner: Borax March 21, 2011

For those who have not purchased Borax, I would highly recommend you go out and buy a box… NOW. We have been using it for a while as a laundry booster, but only recently have we discovered that it can replace nearly all of our cleaners. Here is a short list of what we use Borax for:

  • Laundry Booster
  • Polishing (sinks, bathtub, stove)
  • Toilet Cleaner
  • Dishwasher detergent
  • All-Purpose Cleaner (recipe TBA)

We purchased a couple boxes of Borax as well as Washing Soda this weekend and I am pretty sure that I am not going to buy any other cleaners for a long time. Why waste money on cleaners that you can make yourself for cheap AND they are not nearly as dangerous for you and your family as the other, “designer” brands?

I will post pictures soon of what Borax did to my sink (sparkle!).
