Re: Cleaning Up Our Homes..


I too have removed all chemicals from the house. I do use seventh generation laundry soap, though. I know Hulda says not to use this type of so-called "natural" detergent, but I found that Borax alone was too harsh for my clothes. Also, I can't seem to find washing soda anywhere.

I have tried the borax shampoo, but again, my hair doesn't seem to get clean enough using that alone, or with the citric acid rinse. I make my own shampoo from african black soap which I think is about as close as you can get to chemical-free soap. I add castor oil, grapefruit seed extract and moroccan red clay to it, and use an apple cider vinegar rinse. It works really well for me.

I also use vinegar to clean surfaces, but I add organic rosemary oil for a little extra punch - it helps cover the vinegar smell too! I love borax for scrubbing sinks and countertops. Sometimes use hydrogen peroxide (extra strength) to get rid of stains.

The last things to go, for me, were the "smell-goods". I love candles, air-fresheners, etc. and even though I primarily used natural products, I decided to eliminate those too.

And we use coconut oil as an under-arm deodorant - it works great!
I've never really been into cosmetics that much, so that part was easy. She does recommend henna though, which I do want to try.

That's about it for me!
