How To Use A Moka Pot

If you are a coffee lover like me you might have found yourself wondering how to use a moka pot from time to time.  I love coffee, I might even drink a little too much, but I keep on drinking because it’s just too darn good.  For that reason I’m always open for a new, interesting, and tasty way of brewing coffee.

For years I’ve seen moka pots lying around stashed away in grandparents cupboards or for sale at a garage sale.  However, I never ever, not even once, saw anyone use a one to make coffee with.  So, I finally decided to get myself a moka pot and start making espresso on my stove; here’s how to use a moka pot…

Simple Homemade Dishwasher Detergent

I decided to try and make my own homemade dishwasher detergent for a couple of reasons.  The first of which is that old saying, “You are what you eat.”  A lot of dishwasher soap is loaded with chemicals I don’t think anyone would willingly want to eat.  I don’t like the idea of little bits of chemicals being left on my dishes for me too eat.  So with that kind of gross thought in mind I decided it was time for me to try and make my own dishwasher detergent.

Fast Homemade Laundry Detergent Recipe

Here’s how to make a basic natural homemade laundry detergent recipe that is easy to make, and will get your clothes fresh in no time.

There are a ton of reasons to make your own homemade laundry detergent.  Personally I’m not a big fan of soaking my clothing in a bunch of chemicals that I don’t really know what they are.

Another reason I am starting to steer clear of store bought laundry detergent is it seems to me like so much detergent needs to be used compared to homemade detergent that it seems like there must be some fillers in there.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t like the idea of paying for filler. Another reason many people might be looking to make their own homemade laundry detergent is that some laundry detergents can irritate some peoples skin.

This laundry detergent recipe is much less chemical laden and might be less irritating for those with sensitive skin.  There are other reasons to not buy store bought detergents but as for me, those are the ones that have driven me to try and make my own homemade laundry detergent.
