    Detergent for the dishwasher is SO expensive. I searched the net for a home-made alternative and developed this simple recipe. We've been using it for a while now and it washes the dishes even better than the shop bought variety. The amount needed will depend on how soft your water is - we find 1 tablespoon is enough, but we're on tank water. You might need 2 tablespoons if you're on hard town water. Instead of Rinse Aid, we just use white vinegar.

    Recipe #91963

    After months of preschoolers with markers, slime, play dough, wet nail polish, and of course, food on my dining room chairs, I couldn't stand them anymore. (The chairs, not the kids! lol) I really needed to try to get them clean, and prefer homemade remedies to store-bought chemicals. I found this recipe posted on http://do-it-yourself.tribe.net/thread/480e9776-2d06-4ecd-b0cf-bd4fbd56d307 by Meander. I immediately tried it and it worked miracles! The nail polish wasn't affected by it, but everything else from chocolate and spaghetti sauce to colored markers came out with very little work. In fact, my 5 year old did most of the scrubbing with a small manicure brush. Remember to only use the foam, not the liquid at the bottom of the bowl, and the chairs will dry out quickly.

    Keep your Christmas tree fresh through the holidays. We found our tree continued to drink longer and we had less needles on the floor to clean up.

    Recipe #137032

    Tree preservative helps keep your cut Christmas tree fresh longer than if you only give it water, but why buy expensive tree preservative when you can make your own very cheaply with ingredients you probably already have in just a few minutes of time. I found this recipe/method on About.com

    Recipe #399438

    Each time I went into the kitchen, I saw ants all over the counter. I'd spray bleach cleaner on them, wipe them up and next time I'd go in the kitchen, they'd be back! I didn't want to use anything toxic with kids and pets around, so I scoured the web and combined 3 different ideas. Cheap and effective!

    Recipe #346201

    Want baby smooth skin? Try this intoxicating skin exfoliant!

    Recipe #46074

    So easy to do with what you most likely already have on hand!

    Recipe #438202

    I have been using this for years don't know why I never thought of posting it here on the site earlier, this really works and works very well! no chemicals 100% natural and will remove dust and dirt and kill any little bugs and bacteria not to mention it costs only pennies to make and when used as a soak it will help preserve your veggies so that they will last quite a lot longer --- there is really no servings to this recipe so of coarse the serving amount is only estimated --- because of the fresh lemon juice any unused spray may be refrigerated until used again, I just usually use up the 1 cup and then discard the rest --- the exact amounts do not really matter a little more will not hurt, I really don't even bother to measure I just eyeball everything --- if you are using a smaller bowl then reduce the vinegar to 2 tablespoons and salt to 1 tablespoon it will work just as well :)

    Recipe #300387

    I wanted a recipe that would discourage the fleas and soothe my dog's itchy skin. The only recipes I could find online used icky things like dish soap, which will dry a dog's skin. I see this as a base idea for a dog (and people) shampoo. If you don't have some ingredients or think others would be better, switch it around. A few notes: Be sure to grind the oatmeal very well, otherwise you'll be picking out little pieces from your dog's coat. The turmeric is a very healthy, healing herb. However, it's also a bit of a dye. I didn't see this as a problem since both my dog and I have brownish blonde hair. Any lightening or reddening the turmeric did was a plus. But you may not like this. Both the essential oils are known to be good for the coat and bad for fleas. You may want another oil as well as or instead of for a different smell or different effects.

    Recipe #433691

    A great and inexpensive substitute to commercial cleaners.

    Recipe #93273

    A wonderful dirt cheap alternative to buying a $5 bottle of Febreze. This version is about 5 cents to make and the scent is much nicer too. I use it all the time.

    This mixture is just as good if not better then those little packets you get when you buy cut flower. Add this to you home grown cut flowers to enjoy indoors.

    Recipe #114031

    Don't throw away your foam soap dispenser or spend extra on the refills when you run out. It's easy to make your own! This also works with shampoo.

    This natural method dries out the rash very quickly. Hope you have a quick recovery! I have to give this credit to Nancy a client of mine. She uses it and swears by it. Make sure you wash clothes and shoes as soon as possible. To relieve itchy skin whatever it may be, give it a try.

    Recipe #128233

    This method is nothing short of a miracle to clean kitchen hood filters. Non-toxic and cheap, cheap, cheap! The only problem you should have is finding the right vessel. I used a roasting pan, but maybe using a disposable aluminum pan would work. Add the soda at the beginning to the cool water so it doesn't fizz and overflow. As embarrassing as it may be for me to show how bad mine were, note the differences. The foremost filter in the picture is one that's been cleaned by this method.

    Recipe #474982

    Found this on a MYO cleaners website and love how cheap it is to make! It's so easy to make, too! I keep mine in a quart sized jar and it takes up so little room on my shelf.

    For those of you who hate poison-type drain cleaners, use white vinegar and baking soda. This will clean and unclog a drain. Also drops of white vinegar in your pet's water will keep away fleas and ticks!

    Recipe #16470

    Based on the method in Cooking For Geeks.

    This is great for sinks, showers and even hands. My husband fixed our roof and his hands were full of tar. He used this and the tar "melted off!" He said it was better than the hand cleaner mechanics use to get the oil off their hands! It shines my stainless steel sink, it doesn't scratch my stovetop and it is awesome on the tub. Best of all it is easy and cheap! I found it on a make your own cleaner website and it works!

    This is very inexpensive compared to all the whiteners on the market. And is not the same as those gels on the market this has only 2 ingredients which you know and are at hand in every home. It gets your teeth & gums nice and clean. I do it once every couple weeks. A great way to remove wine, tea, coffee, & tarter stains. If you don't like the taste add a a drop of mint extract. It's is SAFE for your use and has been used for a long time. You can check this article at http://www.dentalgentlecare.com/whitening_safety.htm Take Note A recent report suggested a "possible" link between tooth whitening and oral cancer. It was based on two (only 2)case reports of patients who contracted oral cancer with none of the known risk factors. There are no new studies cited. We call this to your attention because the report got substantial media play. Interestingly, the report itself states that carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide-chemicals generated in the whitening process-AREN'T CARCINOGENS IN THE MOUTH. June 2002 2003 2004 http://educate-yourself.org/cancer/benefitsofhydrogenperozide17jul03.shtml This is no more cancerous then the fat, grilled food and processed foods people put in their bodies filled with ingredients your can't read. If you go into your cabinet and read the hydrogen peroxide bottle it states to use as an gargle and mouth rinse.
