Don’t you just hate it when you go to the cleaning cabinet and you are out of your favorite cleaning product? Been there, done that like 1,000 times.

  1. Great idea! I decided to try hair conditioner on a whim while I was hand-washing some clothes but just squirted it into the tub. Ended up with blue hair conditioner streaks on some clothes, so I’m definitely going to pre-mix with your recipe next time. Do you have an easy recipe for detergent? -Caitlin


  2. Yes!!!! In my menu under Recipes. I’ve been using this recipe for almost 3yrs. For conditioner I’d use something creamy and ivory/white. No colored conditioners as they contain dyes.
