Although it has been a while because I buy organic cleaners now, I've made household cleansers and laundry soap before.
I've also made goat milk soap and got my close friend started in it as a business. She makes and sells soap, lotion, creams, shampoo, and lip butters.
Why did I turn it over to my friend??
Because I'm too busy making goat milk fudge.
Which makes more $$$
At any rate, it is amazing what you can make at home that you would have never thought to do while standing there staring at the container/carton/jug/bar at the store.
