Looking for Sustainability ideas

I thought I find a way to keep costs down while still trying to stay eco-friendly. Trying to keep striving for sustainability. This a record of that journey.

Sometimes blunt and straight forward then sometimes sarcastic

20 MULE TEAM® Borax Natural Laundry Booster has a booklet that you can call a 1-800 number and they will send it too you. The number is 1-800-457-8739. I am going to do a workshop on green cleaning at our area Earth Day Celebration. I am getting 30 copies from the The Dial Corporation.  Plus I can send my web people to this site..... Right? A darker shade of green........

But I use Borax for many things.........

Laundry booster to get out some odors and stains
clean my toilet
Use as a rug freshener -sprinkle borax, baking soda and essential oils
  Dial doesn't claim to help kill fleas in your rugs and carpet
So maybe it's not tested as  such  but it can't hurt!
     It does  help freshen the room I will keep using it for the carpet... 
Clean grease and grime off surfaces - Like the grill that is in the garage

  1. Very good green ideas !

    Following you from FFF on MBC!


  2. you can also mix it with Elmers glue and make GAK for your kids to play with...kidof a bizarre mixture of liquid and solid. Check it out at http://www.stevespanglerscience.com/experiment/00000039

  3. Just found you through FFF on MBC. We have been moving more and more green over the past few years. I can't wait to read through more of your site. Currently, we're going to try Palmolive Eco as we know Cascade is really bad for our water. I haven't heard the best things about it, though. Do you have a good dishwasher detergent suggestion?
