  1. These recipes are incredible! As a mother of two little girls I try to find the most “green” way to clean my home. I don’t have much time but after work I prefer to spend all my free time with my kids – cooking and preparing homemade products for cleaning. I wanna be a good example for them! So I show them how to live in a close relation to the Planet Earth without destroying it! I prepare almost the same recipe for a hand soap but instead of borax I use lard. It makes the skin so soft and hydrated! I will try your recipe as well! Best wishes!


    • Awww thank you so much for your sweet comment! I’m so glad you liked Leslie’s interview! And I agree they are amazing recipes! That’s interesting that you use lard instead of Borax. I love podcasting because it helps me reach out to all sorts of people who think the way I do! Let me know if there’s anything else we can feature on our show you’d be interested in! Do you garden? You’re girls are very lucky to have a mom who cares about them so much! Have a great week! and thanks for commenting!
