make your own

I recycle the foaming soap dispensers from bath and body works. I use dr. bronner's castille soap in the old soap dispenser (THE FOAMING TYPE OF DISPENSER) and I dilute the soap with mostly water.... say 1 part soap and six parts water. This is a very economical soap and smells great.

Green Cleaning

I use white vinager to clean just about everything. I keep a spray bottle with 1/2 vinager and 1/2 water. I use it to wash windows, floors, bathrooms, laundry, and carpet stains. it is a great sanitizer and deodorizer. the vinager smell will go away. Baking soda and vinager help clean drains...
