For the first time in one book, here are low-cost, all-natural replacement recipes for 713 name-brand products that you buy week in and week out at the supermarket, pharmacy, or discount store. Save a fortune making your own everyday cooking, cleaning, and toiletry products! At the same time, you'll fill your cabinets with fresh, super high-quality products at work or taste great--without all the chemicals and preservatives of store-bought versions. Plus, 'think green"--you will greatly reduce the amount of useless, environment-damaging waste and garbage--spray bottles, jars, and cans. For cleaning, laundering, and polishing, the compounds are much gentler and less damaging to drains, sewage, and septic systems.



The ingredients in most brand-name products account for only pennies of the purchaser's dollar and rest of what you spend covers advertising, packaging, shipping, and the retailer's overhead.

Try these easy to make recipes:
Food Staples: mayonnaise, peanut butter, breakfast cereals, soft drinks, soups, pickles, and jellies--save 50% on homemade salsa Beauty and Health Supplies: moisturizers, facials, lip balm, aftershave, decongestant, foot powder, and PMS tea--save 90% on aftershave Household Compounds: glues, wood stains, ant traps, and houseplant food Cleaning Supplies and Polishes: carpet fresheners, cleaners, mildew remover, dishwasher detergent, and fabric softener--save 95% on homemade bathroom cleaner Pet Supplies: liver snaps, dog shampoo, flea dip, cat litter, pet bird honey treats, and hamster fruit cup--save 73% on cat treats Garden Products: fertilizer, soil conditioners, weed killer, deer repellents, and snail traps And much more
