13 Personal Care & Household Products You Can Make on Your Own for Dirt Cheap

You just ran out of shampoo, but need to give your hair a quick wash. Use baking soda! You can make an emergency shampoo paste from 1 part baking soda, 3 parts water, then work the paste into your hair, allow to sit for a few minutes, and rinse out with warm water.

Most common personal care and household products are expensive, not to mention they could contain harmful chemicals. With a little extra effort and a few simple ingredients, you can save a little cash overall by making your own deodorant, stain remover, toothpaste, dishwashing soap, and more.

Great Tips! Thank you! I might also add that your recipes are cruelty-free! (when you use a baking soda other than Arm&Hammer brand, that is!) I shared it on Facebook! Kudos, kudos, kudos!!!! :)
