I've just been having some fun looking at other websites and blogs and getting all inspired. One of the ones I've most recently discovered is Gorgeously Green. Its right up my street and I'm so excited to have found it. Anyway one of the articles I was reading today was all about money saving tips so I wanted to share it with you so here's the link. Also as some of you know I'm doing a detox of my home as I'm trying to minimise the amount of chemicals I'm using around my daughter, my dog and myself. First off I've focused on the beauty side of things and bought myself some Green People products to bathe Lyra in and some lovely moisturisers for us both. I hope to be selling some of their products here soon too.
Whilst I was looking around other websites I came across an article on 20 Ways to Detox Your Home by Kris Carr (who I am loving!). She mentions an author called Annie Bond (I haven't investigated her yet) who says she can clean anything with water and one of these five basic ingredients baking soda, washing soda, distilled white vinegar, vegetable based liquid Soap (e.g., Dr. Bronner’s peppermint soap) and tea tree oil. WOW! Its that easy. I'm always up for trialling these things and it certainly sounds a lot cheaper than most of the eco stuff on sale in the shops so I'll see how I get on.
According to Annie Bond, the author of “Better Basics for the Home,” she can clean anything with water and these five basic ingredients: baking soda, washing soda, distilled white vinegar, vegetable based liquid Soap (e.g., Dr. Bronner’s peppermint soap) and tea tree oil.
