Going Green Step One!

So my mission to go green has offically started. I planted a decent size garden and my veggies are really growing. I also cloth diaper my son. I use g diapers but not the liners, I made washable inserts. My next misson was to find a homemade natural laundry soap and I did! It works great. I looked for powder because I honestly do not have the time to boil and all that.
This is the recipe I used

Powdered Laundry Detergent

2 cups of Ivory Soap (Shaved bar soap)
1 cup Baking Soda (it suggests Washing Soda but I used Baking Soda and it really worked)
1 cup Borax (in your laundry detergent aisle)

Mix all together and put in container with tight lid. I used a tupperware container from walmart.
2 tablespoons per load.

I also purchased a Downey Ball and put 1/3 cup of white vinegar per load to get rid of the excess residue of the soap.

I broke the cost down and it comes to $1.01 for 36 loads...not bad :) Plus my dipes and wipes came out smelling amazingly fresh!!

Next Step: Finding the perfect Mama Pad........

Good for you!! I cloth diaper too but I use Happy Heiny's. Cooper hasn't worn a disposable diaper (except swim diapers) since he was 2 weeks is amazing how easy it is.

Can't wait to see how your garden does! I have wanted to strat one but have always been afraid I will stink at it, maybe you can be that inspiration I need :o)
