Here’s a recipe that I found that you may like, thanks to Tipnut.com:

Ingredients: 1 cup of borax (natural compound), 1 cup of baking soda (natural compound), and 2-3 drops of essential oils, these will make the dishes a little shinier.

As long as you mix the borax, baking soda, and essential oils in a plastic container you should be fine. Also, the recommended amount is 2 tablespoons per load.

Also, you can use vinegar in the rinse compartment to prevent any leftover residue.

If you’ve got any more questions, go ahead and shoot me an email at Greenjerrid@gmail.com.

There are three commonly known toxins that are in foods that most Americans consume somewhat regularly. These toxins cause cancer, heart disease, health deficiency, harm to cellular health, nerve cell deterioration, and much more.

They are called:

1. Sodium Nitrate: Is in hot dogs, sausage, and bacon, generally processed.

2. Excitotoxins: Aspartame and monosodium glutemate are the usual names. Avoiding anything with “MSG” in it will help too.

3. Hydrogenated oils: These are found in foods, such as crackers, margarine, and cookies.

Feeding children processed hotdogs actually increases the chance of brain cancer by 300%.

Don’t buy products that have “carmine” in them. These are actually ground up cochineal beetles that affect your health.

Today I stumbled across some reusable plates, utensils, and other things that are made from bamboo and are 100% safe for your health. I’ve decided that these are an EXCELLENT replacement for anyone who uses paper plates and plastic utensils for parties or picnics often. They are rather inexpensive and light weight, as well as easy to clean. 

This is a picture of one of the plates, there are several more options on the website ( bambu-veneerware.html )

Visit if this is the case for you. Like I said, they’re rather inexpensive, so I personally think it’s worth the investment. 

The products biodegrades in 4-6 months, which makes them ideal for the environment.
