Make your own Dry Shampoo!
This is super duper easy and you probably already have it in your pantry. Guess what it is....Cornstarch. That's it! You just sprinkle it in your hair, rub it in and there you go! Cornstarch absorbs the extra oils from your scalp while volumizing your hair. So it works both ways, Volumizes your hair while soaking up the excess oils. This is good because most second to third day hair becomes flat and almost life less. Good Luck! 
2 Easy, Cheap Fabric Softeners

Like I said above there are 2 different "recipes" I"ll be sharing. Both are super cheap.

Recipe #1:
Add 1 C vinegar to the rinse cycle of your wash.

Recipe #2: (Duggar Method)

5 gallon bucket
1 bottle of name brand fabric softener
4 cheap sponges (cut in half)

Ok so you take your fabric softener and dump it into the bucket then you fill up your fabric softener bottle 4 times with water. So basically 1 part fabric softener, 4 parts water. Cut sponges in half and throw in bucket. When ready to use, ring out sponge and put it in the dryer as you would a dryer sheet.

Recipe #2 is definatly better if you have a big family like the Duggars :)
Easy Anti-Bacterial Wipes

These are so easy to make. You can use these to disinfect pretty much everything (your car, office, desk, your hands, countertops, etc.) The lotion moisturizes while the alcohol kills all the bacteria.

Cut a paper towel in half and take out the brown roll in the middle. Put the half a roll in a container (any size is pretty much fine) And add 2 equal parts of baby lotion and rubbing alcohol. Make sure that the baby lotion is paraben free, etc. Let the paper towels get saturated for about 5-10 mins. And their ready to use! Super easy and safe!
