    I took ideas from a couple of recipes and made my own. This would be good for any scrubbing surface, yet avoids all the nasty chemicals in store bought cleansers (Comet makes me sick!) Scrub gently on porcelain, if you choose to use it on that. Use the eggshells that you have left over from making eggs. Boil them for a few minutes, then dry in the oven on low (250) for a few minutes. Then grind in a coffee grinder or food processor.

    Recipe #511560

    My poor pooch had a couple of fleas on her this summer (never had this issue before) and I needed a way to bathe her and kill the fleas without causing skin reactions as she has so many allergies. I found this through the e-how website and IT WORKED! The fleas just floated in the water and died and best of all little Libby did not have any reactions at all to the process. Cooking time is actually the time to leave the solution on the dog.

    Recipe #480112

    you'll rave about this harmless, CHEAP bath and kitchen cleaner - save a pile of money over your lifetime AND do no harm to our good earth or family members with allergies!

    Recipe #503907

    I couldn't believe how dirty my watch and silver jewelry were when I tried this. Yuck! This saves money and is safe for you and the environment. The solution can be very drying to your hands so consider using rubber gloves or even tweezers to handle the jewelry. This recipe is from

    Recipe #180133

    I have been using this for years and it works great. I use it in the kitchen, bathrooms and everywhere in between. I am posting it here so I no longer have to search for the recipe. Safe and non-toxic.

    Recipe #499767

    If mosquitos can be considered your state bird, here's a non-toxic, pet-friendly method of mosquito control. I found this online and wanted to preserve it for safekeeping.

    Recipe #498703

    Such an easy and inexpensive way to make watercolour paints. Lots of fun, too!

    Recipe #498565

    From Utah Preppers. Here's what they say, "This has been an interesting experiment and learning experience. I set out a couple days ago to figure out how to make hand sanitizer at home. With an immune fragile child in our home, we sanitize a LOT! After doing copious amounts of research and extended experimentation last night, I believe I have found a reliable and effective way to make hand sanitizer at home. First, some background: To be effective, hand sanitizers MUST contain a minimum of 60% alcohol by concentration. Alcohol kills germs by dessication, meaning that it dries them out through rapid evaporation. A lower concentration of alcohol results in not having enough alcohol to rapidly evaporate and dry out the microbes on your hands. There are many recipes on the internet that result in an over-dilluted mixture which will prove to be very ineffective at killing germs." This works for me! If you want, you could add a few drops of your favorite scent.

    Recipe #498127

    Simple, green, toilet solution.

    Recipe #452972

    This solution is for heavy duty cleaning. Washing soda can be found in the cleaning aisle of your local grocery store along with the detergents and other cleaning products. Washing soda is not baking soda. I use Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda.

    Recipe #393210

    This recipe only uses baking soda, vinegar and castille soap. Not all will have castille soap in the cupboard but some already rely upon it for other things. I have been using this regularly so I feel comfortable posting it. I only use 1/8 to 1/4 cup and have no issues with the laundry at all. According to the original source "this recipe yields very few suds because it lacks the chemical-based emulsifying surfactants that are found in mainstream detergents."

    Recipe #496775

    a cute little Thanksgiving decoration that is easy and the kids will love to make. I found it in Womans day and I will be making these this weekend and will post a picture. Can be made up to three days ahead and stored in an airtight container at room temperature.

    Recipe #104493

    Build an Oreo turkey with Oreos, candy and frosting. This would be a fun activity for (school-age) kids at a Thanksgiving gathering to put these together. They can display them at their dinner place and eat them for dessert....if they can wait that long. The recipe I am listing will be to make one dozen turkeys.

    Recipe #142998

    This is Not to eat!! It is a fun craft project for kids. great for Halloween parties

    Recipe #489445

    There's a Nutter Butter marathon going on at my house this fall. The inspiration for this recipe was the Crafty Kitchen. It's a project that's geared toward preschool kids. So....I felt if a 5 year old could make these, I should be able to also!

    Recipe #489386

    A great and inexpensive substitute to commercial cleaners.

    Recipe #93273

    A friend shared this recipe on Facebook...and it really works.

    Recipe #484469

    Much less expensive than store bought. Great for cookies, cakes, etc. Also, can add a drop or two of extracts to make the sugar also taste and smell good. Multiply amount to make as much as you need, but a little goes a long way, visually.

    Recipe #251133

    This NON-EDIBLE recipe is named after the strange material that falls from the sky in Dr. Seuss' book, Bartholomew and the Oobleck. It's a really fun recipe to be used as a science experiment of sorts with young children. ----Is it a solid? ---- Is it a liquid? **It's a liquid until pressure is applied. Hit it hard and it feels like you are hitting a wall! Touch it gently and the material will flow around your fingers like water! **Have fun using different utensils to play- see what form it takes while using different cups, spoons, bowls, etc. HAPPY PLAYING!
