Homemade Dishwasher Detergent:
1 Plastic Container with lid
1 Funnel
1 ½ c.  Borax
1 ½ c. Baking Soda
1 c. Table Salt
Stick funnel down in top of container and pour in: Borax, Baking Soda, and Table Salt. Place lid tightly back onto the plastic container and shake well. Makes 4 cups of soap and use ¼ cup per load. 


Homemade Febreze:

1 (24-27 oz.) Plastic Spray Bottle 

2 Tbsp. Baking Soda 

2 Tbsp. Fabric Softener (Any Brand or Downy is recommended-your choice scent.)  

Hot Tap Water



Using a small funnel on your spray bottle, measure in the 2 tbsp. of baking soda and let that slide down the funnel into your bottle. Note: Always add the baking soda first.) Then, measure in the 2 tbsp. of Fabric Softener and then fill the bottle on up with hot water straight from your kitchen or bathroom faucet. Put lid on bottle and shake really well until all the baking soda is dissolved. Spray directly on: sofas, carpets, rugs, vehicle seats/carpets, bedding, etc...! This will save you lots of money.  


My Personal Note: I made this and the scent of mine wasn't  as stout as I would have liked just with two Tablespoons as directed in the recipe.  So,  if yours doesn't smell as stout as you'd like, you can add another tablespoon or two of your choice Fabric softener to the mix and shake it up. 



I found this idea on Youtube on the cookingandcrafting channel that I enjoy watching and I will also include her source that she mentioned as well! 





Home Made Christmas Floor Wax & Glitter Ornaments:

Box of clear Christmas Ornaments

Super Fine Glitter (Your choice colors)

Bottle of Floor Wax (Mop and Glow)



Make a funnel out of paper or use a plastic funnel. Take off the top of the ornaments and pour in the clear ornament 1 tablespoon of floor wax and swirl it around inside, covering all the inside area, Turn your ornament upside down in the floor wax bottle to drain out excess wax. Let it sit for a few minutes. Take a tissue or paper towel and wipe out the rim of the ornament. Then use your funnel and pour in the glitter into the ornament a little bit at a time and rotate the ornament with your fingers to coat the inside thoroughly. Allow it to sit for at least 15 minutes before attempting to fasten the top back on the ornament. Once you have the top on, you can decorate it with ribbon, stickers, etc....! Hang on your tree or give to people as gifts.
