First, Boil the Water

I am always on a constant quest for new ways to eliminate products from my life. I’m a huge fan of having a few basic ingredients around the house that are all-purpose, inexpensive, and environmentally-friendly. This started about two years ago when we moved into our home. The first thing I did was make my own laundry detergent using a recipe similar to this.  My best friend gave me a really great recipe for an all-purpose cleaner. She is my partner-in-crime on this quest to eliminate the uni-tasker cleaning items in our homes. Not only is using the basics healthier for us and the environment, it is also much cheaper.
My husband often busts my chops for trying all of these different things. He knows they are better for us. That being said, we still have a few “regular” cleaning products.
Then came Luna.

While I'm certainly biased, I think the spirit of this post by my wife about homemade baby wipes can be appreciated by all. It really does amaze me how many things we purchase at the supermarket that can be made at home, for cheap, and with minimal effort.
