$3.99 for a box of Borax
$7.92 for a bottle of Grapefruit Essencial Oil
$4.49 for a bottle of Fruitt Fresh
Combined with the other ingrediants I already had and Wal-la, 2 and half cups of home-made dishwasher detergent. Plus, I still have a virtually full box of Borax, which has countless other uses around the home, and a nearly full bottle of Essencial Oil that I can do things like add to baking soda to make my own carpet freshener, mix with water for a home-made fabric freshener, put a couple drops in the toilet to freshen the bathroom....endless possiblilities. The Fruit Fresh will come in handy when its time to make more jelly.
So, for $16.40 I got a variety of home made cleaning products that will end up being pennies on the dollar.
How cool is that?
