Easy peasy - dissolve 1 tsp borax in a cup of hot water, then let it cool. I use a recycled bottle that holds approx 12 oz, so I put the borax water in it, add plain water until it's full. I get about 5 showers worth. I can't say shampoo's because this doesn't suds at all. It's just like rubbing soft water all over. Rinse, repeat if you have product on, then rinse. Follow up with standard diluted ACV/water. I don't measure, so anywhere from 1 part AVC to 5 or 10 parts water.I see a need for a new thread. DIY cleaning products. @Marianne : I'm guessing you have a lot of recipes to share. Perhaps there is already a thread where some cleaning product recipes are already posted, and we just need to revive it? I like the idea of a thread where many recipes of like products are stored, instead of a single thread for each and every recipe!
Please tell me about your borax shampoo.
Hi Riece! I was a certified master pet groomer before my health got in the way of working. I'm happy to help you if you're interested. I have a couple unsolicited tips!The other day I got after my lil shih Tzu with the clippers. Doggies are hard, but I'm learning. She turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself and saved us from paying for a cut. Will probably take her occasionally to get the things I have a hard time with, especially around the face, my Cookie Bear wasn't letting me near that without a fight, lol I have considered eventually getting a stand to help me hold her for this and will keep on trying. Have been paying $40 every six weeks for the past year that I've had her and they raised prices to $50, so..
