    This recipe comes from a book by Jerry Baker and is his favorite for spray starching. I've not tried this one yet but will soon. There are several ways to make your own laundry starch, but they all include the same secret ingredient: Stirring the bejeebers out of them to make sure they end up lump free.

    This is a good way to soak up smells. It is fragrence free and really works! The activated charcoal soaks up the odors and the gel, as it dries, reveals a bit of charcoal at a time so the odor removing properties last a long time! Please don't use bbq charcoal! You won't get the same results at all!

    I've been using this for years on my fruit trees, and it hasn't failed me in this deer-infested area of Western Pennsylvania. As an added bonus, the garlic helps repel insect pests.

    Recipe #160849

    I searched for a long time and couldn't find a good liquid dishwasher detergent recipe, so I played around and invented this one. It was inspired by the many powdered detergent recipes. It rinses well, but if you have hard water, you might want to use some vinegar in the rinse cycle.

    Recipe #196671

    This is a safe and effective insecticide for plants.

    Recipe #249312

    Use every 4 to 6 weeks to nourish your plants. Servings depend on amount of plants and usage, so I just put 10.

    Recipe #249307

    From the SBS gardening show "Vasili's Garden"

    Recipe #244274

    I came up with this inexpensive recipe after several attempts to get rid of these pesky critters. They breed very quickly and it's best to get a handle on them ASAP. This recipe is a combination of several recipes and I have found this to be the best! Let me know what you think. We had a bucket of Margarita Mix that unleashed quite a few of these in our house when we opened it.

    My daughter spilled a cup of grape juice on her hot pink shirt. This did the trick, and the shirt's still pink! I got this from my sister in law and am posting it here so I don't lose it. The "dish detergent" is actually Cascade automatic dishwasher detergent-it wouldn't let me enter that as an ingredient.

    Recipe #194639

    This potpourri uses things found in your spice cupboard and fruit drawer. I put approximate amounts of everything... please use your own judgement for exact measurements. I never measure anything.. I just use up what I have. You can use any combination.. be creative!

    Recipe #199300

    This recipe found in the Toronto Star. It comes from Green Clean by Linda and Mason Hunter and Mikki Halpin. Quote: "For the first time in the history of the world, every human being is now subjected to contact with dangerous chemicals, from the moment of conception until death." Rachel Carson, Silent Spring, 1962 Note: After the reviewers' comments, I've changed the number of drop of essential oils)

    Our HOA is a stickler about grass/weeds in the expansion joints of the driveway, but I am extremely leery of herbicides (or any commercial 'cide'). This easy mixture is also safe enough to let my 10 yr old help out when we are sprucing up the yard! How many lawn care products can say that?!? =)

    Recipe #248642

    An economical laminate floor cleaner spray that you can make for pennies... and it gets your floors just as clean as that expensive cleaner they sell in stores... if not cleaner! This formula has been keeping my floors so clean and does not give me a headache like so many other commercial cleaners, so I have decided to share this gem that was shared with me from a Pergo expert. This is the first "recipe" I've posted with the hope that many of you will be able to put it to good use!!!

    This cleaner is great. I use it for everything. Laundry (1/2 cup per load) Dishes (a squirt in the sink) Dishwashers (in the prewash only)Bathroom. It is a combination of many recipies for laundry soap I have discovered on the web, but it will clean everything! One batch will last a long time and will cost way less than $1. I just discovered a new use for this awesome stuff... It cleans grout! Just pour some on your floor (My kitchen grout was nasty!) and scrub the grout lightly. Rinse it and enjoy clean grout with no nasty chemicals!!!

    Recipe #82941

    This recipe is easy to make, cheap & best of all it works!

    This will perk up sagging limbs on your trees.

    Recipe #151733

    Tired of that old crabgrass that keeps cropping up? Wipe it out by preventing the seeds from sproutiing in the spring. Here's how!

    Recipe #151729

    This stuff works! Will even de-scent a roadkilled skunk. Has to be made fresh every time.
