The best shampoo/conditioner you can use is cat spit.

Read this here. Sounds some what like what your doing Dolly.
No Shampoo! The Soap and Shampoo Conspiracy
http://www.organiclifestylemagazine....conspiracy.php

I just use these here.

http://www.drbronner.com/DBMS/OBPE05...nicBarSoap.htm
$2.99 a bar on sale and then I stock up on it.

It also soaps up better and last longer. Very hard water here so getting the soap to foam up etc was hard but this works a lot better. Plus it makes you feel good and it smells great.

Prices at his site are sky high.

Harry, I haven't used soap since I was aged 15 and my complexion has always been clear, soap has a drying effect and really isn't good for your skin, the theory on washing hair without shampoo is upheld by me as I've got to that stage when my hair appears quite oily which isn't normal for me but I know it's just the phase I've reached before my hair becomes totally clean, it saves a fortune on trying different shampoos which I've done over the years and now I feel it's the natural process to achieve clean hair without using additives

So how you clean the rest of your body if no soap is used?


Bed things are added to so many things.

Warning: Johnson & Johnson uses cancer-causing chemicals in their shampoo:

Was using Dawn dishsoap and I wash all dishes by had. Change to another Coconut base green dishsoap I like better. Thought I use up the dawn because I have a very big bottle of it. It cleans better and I used it still on and off to clean some things. But I was using on everything again after I ran out of the other soap. Took a couple days for me to find out what was going on.I get my hand up by my nose and they had this bad burned plastic smell. Lost my smell years ago so really can't smell. But I keep smelling this. Then it hit me the only thing that changed was the soap. I stopped using it and the smell went away.
I use Dishmate to do the dishes now. Cost more but it's safer and I know all that is in it too. http://www.ecos.com/Dishmate_Almond.html

Avoiding name brands and buying generic can save you some coin, but what knockoff products will give you the best bang for your buck, and what items are worth the extra for the name brand?

Don't forget the dollar store and 98 cent store.
Got to watch out on some things but you can save.

Just go a pack of sharpie - magic markers with 4 colors markers in it.

I get my razors from both. Two types I get and one from each store. Soap and a brush to shave saves a whole lots of money.

Lots of junk but you can also get something good.

The ant tins you push the tabs on the sides to open up were junk because they were empty so I saved no money on them because I got taken.

How did you feel when you woke up this morning?

If your answer is anything other than "refreshed," maybe you should take a closer look at your sleep quality, said Michael Decker, Ph.D., an associate professor at Georgia State University and spokesman for the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.

Harry, I use unperfumed body washes that are soap free and for sensitive skin, for washing the dishes I use a product called Surecare which is also fragrance free and kind to your hands, they also have laundry products which can help if you're sensitive to the additives in detergents

I use paper plates or eat directly from the wrappers.
