My Backyard

November 20, 2013

Can we conserve our habitats?  Can we clean the waters we have poisoned?

This is the little babbling brook in my backyard.


Do you see all of the bubbles?  My questions are what is it, and where does it come from?

Here is an up close picture.


These are stiff bubbles collecting by a rock.

We as the people, with choice and a conscience need to preserve our habitats everywhere.

As to the suds and bubbles, my small part is to use natural detergents.  Borax, washing soda, baking soda and an all natural soap are the ingredients.  Some natural soaps are: good old- fashioned Ivory, Fels-Naptha, or any natural soap.  This recipe is  low suds. I recycled an old large coffee can, 23 ounces, and mixed my ingredients:

4 cups borax, 4 cups washing soda, 1 cup baking soda, and half the bar of soap (shaved).

The bar of soap has to be shaved.  A cheese grater works great, or an utility knife.  This is the only time- consuming  part of the recipe.  Mix all the ingredients together, and use a 2 tablespoons per load of laundry.  This is safe for front-loading washing machines, and the environment.

Borax has many useful purposes.  Sticking with the laundry theme, Borax can be used with bleach.  Borax is also made in the USA.
