Oxy Clean


2 cups water
1 cup Hydrogen Peroxide
1 cup Baking Soda

Mix well in spray bottle and let set on stains 30 min prior to washing.

If the entire load of laundry needs more whitening, add 1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide and 1/4 cup baking soda to the load.


All purpose cleaner


I am now using this recipe for showers, sinks, kitchen, etc. In 2 cups of warm water, add 1 tsp borax, 1/2 tsp washing soda, 1 tsp Dr Bronner’s liquid castille soap and mix well. Keep in spray bottle. I have one in each room!

Liquid Laundry Detergent


Grate and melt a bar of Dr. Bronner’s soap in 2 quarts of boiling water. Fill a 5 gallon bucket with 4 gallons of hot water. Pour in the melted soap, along with 1 cup Borax and 1 cup washing soda and mix well. Leave at least 24 hours with lid on, then open and stir and it’s now ready to use! Use 1/2 cup per load of laundry.
