Simple Liquid Hand Soap

Originally posted on our Facebook Page 26th November, 2014. It worked!!! Now this is the cheats version of liquid hand soap. I will work on one "from scratch" once this is all gone. I was experimenting with a craft recipe the other day that ended up being a big flop but it gave me this idea. It's very simple and only has two "ingredients". I prefer body wash and liquid hand soap over a block of soap so if you look in my bathroom cupboard you will find an abundance of soap bars from gift packs I've received over the years. I've tried this with both the creamy soaps and [...]

  Before I get started on this tutorial its important to mention a few things re: candle making. There is quite a lot of science involved in candle making.

Homemade Washing Powder

  I have spent weeks and weeks researching this topic to create my own recipe. You would think this is quite simple but there is a bit you need to know. Everything is explained below.

The store bought ones are a lot more powerful but that is because they use powerful chemicals such as bleach. I have experimented using this powder on baby clothes, kids clothes and a load of dirty [...]

Homemade Dishwasher Powder

I have spent weeks and weeks researching this topic to create my own recipe. You would think this is quite simple but there is a bit you need to know. Everything is explained below. Before I go on, if you have a favorite brand of powder and are absolutely in love with it, making your own will be a big leap. The consistency is different, the effectiveness (due to lots of chemicals in store bought ones) is different and the smell is different. The store bought ones are a lot more powerful but that is because they use powerful chemicals such as bleach in them. I find this homemade powder [...]
