I don't really know anything new in the form of organizing right now, I would love some ideas on organizing recycling, plus ways to organize cleaning supplies for those of you who read this at Works-for-me-Weds. I'm also recycling this for a new carnival I've found at Green Baby Guide,
Thrifty Green Thursday.
So, I really enjoy finding new avenues for keeping my new (3 1/2 month old) child safe, clean, and healthy. I have spent the last couple of months beginning my transition to becoming a SAHM, Stay-at-home-mom for those of you who don't speak tech lingo. Don't worry I didn't know the lingo a few months ago either. I'm beginning the process now of switching out my laundry detergent and dishwasher soap for home-made, we'll see how this goes. Hopefully it works because it's also a cost saver. We also started sweet Samantha with cloth diapers from day one and love them. It was even more eye opening to us when we were using some disposable while away on vacation and the first few diapers stunck soooo bad. My husband said, "I can't stand that stinky chemical stuff next to my daughters skin". Anyway, I'm really writing to say that we have LOVED a receipe for wipes that happened to end up in our pocession from a nurse.
3 cups warm water
3 tbsp baby shampoo
1 tbsp baby oil
cotton squares (I use the ones that are for removing eye makeup, they are a great size 2 at a time, the original receipe calls for cutting a roll of paper towels in half)
I purchased containers that fit the cotton squares perfectly and make 4 at a time. They are not too wet, not too dry, very natural, very clean, and VERY CHEAP!!
