Do you have these items?

If you can clean your toilet!

Here is the "recipe"

1/2 cup baking soda
1/4 cup white vinegar
(optional) 10 drops tea tree essential oil

Combine all ingredients. Just add to the bowl, swipe with a brush, and you're done!!!! question for those of you who already knew this!(I know there are some of you out there)

Where do you find BORAX locally? Is it at Jewel? I found the washing soda, fels naptha(sp?) bar soap, vinegar and baking soda at Meijer(you can obviously get the baking soda and vinegar anywhere). My essential oils are coming in the mail from pack, $20 shipped...I thought it wasn't bad) I also still need glycerine soap and liquid castile soap. Any ideas?

Happy Monday cleaning ladies! :) P.S.-I haven't forgotten my "real me mondays"...I have to take the picture! Don't is still quite easy to find something REAL!

Walmart, Jewel, and I believe Walgreens. Walmart is the cheapest ;0)

You can usually find it in the laundry isle if your looking at the left isle it will be on the left on the ground level. I just looked online and the Walmart in woodstock is out of stock right now but mchenry has it. otherwise I am pretty sure jewel has it ;0)

Thanks Alicia! I found the Borax today at Walmart(got the last two). Sean must not have been looking in the right place they are kinda hidden.

I also found the liquid castile soap on etsy not too bad on the price on that either!

So far..I have made laundry soap(unscented but it does the trick), cleaned my microwave and toilet and made an all purpose cleaner. I intend to make dishwasher soap, carpet cleaner solution, and car wash. I just can't wait for all my oils to come in!!!

Question - What kind of Dishwasher soap are you making? If its the powder kind, just a warning to be careful, it has turned our glasses filmy and I know of others that it has done the same thing. Just wanted to let you know. :0)

Thanks for the warning! I might do a vinegar rinse...might help?
