It's rare that I have a Sunday off from work. So, I am just relaxing this morning, drinking my coffee and visiting with grandchildren for little bits of time on and off. Eventually, I will take a shower and do some laundry. I hope I will get around to making dish soap.

Dish soap? Yes, if you read my sisters blog, you will know that we are making homemade products. So, far I have made laundry soap, facial wipes, and baby wipes. The laundry soap I have been making since early summer. I love it and will not go back to commerical laundry products ever! My daughter makes her own stain remover and that works just like commerical brands. And for fabric softener, I use just plain old vinegar in the rinse cycle. After a run through the dryer, you don't even smell the vinegar. It has been working out well.

So, now I am on to dish soap. I have been wanting to do so for some time. Just never really had time. Renee has made it and loves it. So, I am going to try it hopefully today.

If you think that this is time consuming, you are wrong. It takes no time at all to whip up your own products. And you can feel good knowing exactly whats in them. Plus, I like to snub the commerically dependent way of life we lead these days.
