Soap, Soap, Jabon!

I am embarking on a journey. An all natural journey.

Starting soon I am going to start making my own shampoo, laundry detergent, and dishwashing powder. What are my reasons for this you may ask? Here are a few:

  1. In the long run, it's cheaper. Think of this: Jet Dry for your dishwasher's rinse cycle vs. a tablespoon of white vinegar.
  2. I've been wondering lately what exactly is in all the things that I use (shampoos, etc.) and they're chock-full of chemicals. Not that they are bad, I mean, I'm 22 and I've made it this far, but maybe there is a better way.

OK, two reasons, not so bad. I'm sure there will be more. And of course, I'll keep everyone updated on the progess. Who knows? Three months from now I may be a soap making nut, or i may be perusing the shampoo aisle at Wal-Mart, looking for my next brand of chemical cleanser!
