There is something very satisfying about making your own things, knowing that you are helping the environment at the same time. In this section you can browse recipes for all sorts of nappy related things.

Stain remover
Instead of pre-treating soiled nappies with a commercial product, you could make your own stain remover.

500ml (2 cups) water

Mix together. Apply with a sponge and leave to dry.

Nappy bin soak/sterilising solutions

Use half a bucket of water with ONE of the following:

5-7 drops of an essential oil with disinfectant properties per cup of water, dissolved in 1 teaspoon of methylated spirits (available at any chemist)
2-3 tablespoons of clear/ white vinegar
1 tablespoon of vinegar

Stay-at-home moms may seem to have an easy job, but in reality, it's a wonderful job that includes quite a big of stress. Many people (including the moms themselves in their pre-stay-at-home-mom days) may think of the life of a stay-at-home mom as an endless string of relaxing tea-parties, fun games of dominoes, or (literally) a walk in the park. At-home motherhood may include those things, but often is also a 'scream through the park' (if toys get taken or sand gets into little eyes), a 'whine through the park' (if the Ice Cream Truck shows up and mom doesn't want to buy), or a 'collapse in the park' (from the exhaustion of trying to keep up with small children all day)! Stay-at-home moms--most of them--often find themselves going from the time they (or their little ones) wake up in the morning until the time they collapse into bed at night. When kids are asleep, it's time to clean up after all of the fun or give Daddy some attention. It's a much-loved job, but it usually only looks relaxing from the outside!
