diy dish soap

Did you know the leading cause of poisonings in the home for children under the age of six is liquid dish soap? This is why I like this DIY: Non-Toxic Dish Soap recipe  free of  toxic chemicals like formaldehyde and ammonia.

Ingredients

Directions: Mix 2 cups of liquid castile soap with ½ cup of warm water in your bowl. Castile soap is any soap made entirely from vegetable oil. Add ½ cup of lemon juice. The lemon will add acidity to your soap, which is a powerful decreasing agent. Add essential oils. Thoroughly mix all ingredients using a whisk. Add your liquid dish soap to an empty bottle. You can use old store-bought soap bottles, or any decorative bottle.

Aloha Friday is the custom of “dressing down” on the last day of the work week and wearing a comfortable Aloha Shirt in lieu of typical business attire. While originating in the Hawaiian Islands, the idea has spread to the mainland and around the world in the more generic form of “casual Fridays” where, particularly in the summer months, employees are allowed to come to work in shorts, t-shirts and other casual attire. What year did Aloha Friday officially begin?

“It’s no joke to be caught in the crossfire of prejudice, and it’s no joke to live with the fear of being rejected, or vilified, or persecuted because of who you are… That fact is, we still hear homophobic comments and slurs bandied around as if they’re acceptable, harmless, just a bit of a laugh. Well it isn’t a laugh to a young person growing up, working out who they are, surrounded by an atmosphere of hostility. They can feel alone, isolated from their peers, isolated from their community and sometimes even their family.” ~Senator Penny Wong
