Creative Thursdays ~ Creative Organic Cleaning Products

 

I think that the cleaning products we introduce into our homes and subsequently, into our bodies are quite harmful. I've been wanting to tell this story for many years now, but now is the time to tell it.

When I was pregnant with my second child, a beautiful girl, she had allergies instantly upon my giving birth to her. "My Baby In The Bubble", is what I called her as I had to eliminate all perfume, body sprays & powders, makeup, hair products, deodorant, itchy clothing, soap, lotion, purchased diapers, household cleaners, bleach, dish soaps, potpourri, air freshers, laundry powder/soaps & rinses, pet shampoos, flowers, incense, and the animals. Even being outside made her sick.

 Everything in her environment was basically causing her pain and discomfort, allergic reactions and severe asthma. And this was back in the late 1980's when it was not proper to "make" your own products & cleaners.

That was a challenging time and very frustrating finding things I could use for alternatives. For us it was a daily struggle and with my first born, precious boy, it hit us when he turned 4 years old. His was not as bad, but were outdoor/environmental allergies. Then came School.

So, this blog is about Creating Organic Cleaning Products as alternatives to the "Normal" Cleaning Products found in the stores.

On my Store 'A' List are:

Borax:  for cleaning, washing, ant killing.
Dove Unscented Soap: for washing hands, bathing & hair.
Cloth Diapers: For sensitive babies.
Dreft Clothes Washing Powder: For sensitive babies & children. (You too if you don't want to make your own)
Lemons: Cleaning, deodorizing.
Salt: Cleaning & Scrubbing.
 Baking Soda: for cleaning almost anything in and out of your home. From greasy pans to bathrooms to floors!

To make your own, My 'A' List are:

Prayers for Healing Update

Prayers for Healing (Prayers for Healing UPDATES) Hello Dear Ones,

When a believing person prays, great things happen. (James 5:16b NCV)
I've been giving thought to how to go about our prayer chain. I have decided to do an ongoing prayer post with updates and with Praises as they come in!

If you would like to be on this list, or if you would like me to post a prayer for you, please just let me know in the comments below in the Subject line put "Prayer Request", add the first name and last initial, prayer request and I will add it asap. I remove the info from the comments, so you will not see it below, but on this list here when I am done.

It has been said to me many times that, " if we don't know what to pray for, be it huge or small, we don't recieve the blessing that prayer will give the person who needs the prayer and the person praying". Please keep posing the prayer requests. All personal information is kept private.

We pray to you Lord Jesus Christ to…
