VZ 195: Homemade Cleaning Products


In the last episode of the Vegetarian Zen podcast, we shared information about why conventional household cleaners are so bad (for us and for the environment) and offered some tips for making cleaning more environmentally-friendly and less hazardous to health. In this episode, we’ll be talking specifically about making your own cleaning products, including what some of the typical ingredients in homemade cleaning products are, as well as some dos and don’ts.

  1. I love your podcasts. After my husbands unexpected heart attack (he’s only 37) in January, we decided to become vegans. Your podcasts helped educate me on this new world of vegan foods. The topics are presented in a fun and informative way that I always look forward to listening.
    Have either of you tried local honey to reduce your seasonal (pollen) allergies? It has eliminated all of my spring and fall allergies. (If you havent tried it, you need to take 1 tablespoon twice a day. Be sure to use real honey that was collected within 10 miles of your home. And don’t heat the honey-that kills the “good” stuff.
    I make my own laundry soap. I love it. I won’t ever go back to commercial laundry soaps. It doesn’t flare up my family’s soap allergies, is more environmentally friendly, and as an added bonus cheaper.
