The other day I had my mom, two sisters and first cousin, Maggie, over to make homemade cleaning supplies. It was kind of like a workshop. Except there was no teacher- we were all learning.
I looked up a few recipes online and I will share them with you. We have all used the products for two weeks now and love the results.

Momma's hands, that create beautiful things.
You can make your cleaners smell as you'd wish.
There are so many essential oil options. The neat thing is that some have natural, germ-killing abilities. Here is a list- cinnamon, eucalyptus, ginger, grapefruit, lavender, lemon, lemongrass, lime, orange, peppermint, rosemary and tea tree.
A lot of laundry detergent recipes call for fels naptha soap, but you can use Kirk's Castle, Zote or any natural, cleaning soap. I added two different kinds to mine and it smells divine. The recipe says to use 3 Tbsp. per load and that's what I have been using and our clothes come out clean.
All done and ready for work.
