    Other species can teach us important lessons about ourselves and life in general. What has your cat taught you?

    What did you learn by making your own cleaning products? What is the biggest difference in making vs buying?

    I was surprised to see what is on you tube on making your own cleaners.  Price point and knowing what I am using for my cleaners.

      Do you like the products you've been able to make? I am apprehensive about making my own but would like to control what chemicals are in our home.
