Yes, I know those little toes are cute. But what I would like you to focus on is that little blue bottle up there. I have loved, loved, loved this little blue bottle for about four years now. "Dr Bronners Magic Pure-Castile Soap" is both mine and Ruby's all-in-one beauty product. It is all I use on my body (and face) and all Ruby has ever been exposed to. This baby blue one is my personal favourite. There are others such as rose, lemon and lavender. It is unscented and very mild, hence the name, Unscented Baby Mild!

I also use it (in the solid form, a bar of soap) to make our washing powder. So here it is, my recipe for...

Natural Eco Washing Powder

1 bar Dr Bronners Castile Soap - finely grated
1 cup Borax
1 cup Baking Soda
1 cup Washing Soda

I use about 3-4 tablespoons per load.


I hope you enjoy this lovely soap (in many different ways!)
