Going green part 1

Did I tell you how much I love Pinterest lately? I can literally loose my all day browsing it! Among the pins I love the most are the ones where bloggers found tricks to reproduce household items at a fraction of the cost of brand names and more often than not in a way that it's much safer for human use and Earth. In honor of Earth day tomorrow, I figure I will make an effort to make my house greener.
My plan will be to replace all detergents with homemade ones as much as possible. For now I'm successfully using reusable dryer sheets as I read about in on this blog, Live Renewed The only difference for now is that I'm not using a natural detergent yet as I'm sticking to the dollar store brand to keep my detergent spending as low as possible.But never say never.....voila'! My recycled baby wipe case full of reusable dryer sheets
I tried for a few days now and they get rid of the static nicely and I think the clothes are softer and smell better than when using disposable dryer sheets. maybe I should decorate that plain white box with cupcakes???? lol post signature

Happy Earth Day Lu! :)

That is probably one of the neatest things I've seen; it's so amazing what people think up!

Now if only we can ALL think like this-The world (and Earth) would definitely be better for it :)

Great idea with the reuseable sheets. I stopped using dyer sheets years ago after reading an article about not really needing them. Once I separate the staticy items the electricity goes away! The box would look so fun covered in cupcakes!!!
