Don’t you just love a product that you can buy and use for practically everything? My family does and that gave me an idea to start a series called “10 Uses For.” Each time, I’ll choose something that does double duty around your home while also saving you money! I decided to start with baking soda since it’s so versatile.
One thing I really can’t give up is my dishwasher. We have two young kids and we use that thing like crazy. I throw just about everything in there too. I sanitize our toothbrushes, clean sponges, you name it, I’ve tried washing it in dishwasher. I try to use everything to my advantage, dishwasher included. Those liquid detergents really add up though. Even with coupons, I can’t get the cost as low as I would like. I was reading our local newspaper the other day and I came across a recipe for homemade dishwasher detergent. I had most of the ingredients so I decided to give it a go! It was so easy to make and you only need a tablespoon of mix each time! I’m hooked. I really don’t notice a difference between this and the expensive stuff either! It’s so much cheaper to make and it’s non-toxic! I really hope you give it a try.
