Seriously, this book would have been better (and cheaper), if they focused more on the last parts of the book, making homemade remedies, cleaners, pet food, etc.
I agree with the one reviewer who was talking about the beer shampoo. It was, well, kind of lame. Some of the other recipes for cleaners and such are really good ideas. I would have given it a higher rating if they did more homemade remedies/etc.
While I doubt I buy the fresh tomatoes to make and process my own ketchup, there are still many other treats that I will continue making. A good purchase for the price.
Just because something is homemade, that doesn't mean it is good for you or good for the environment. The book doesn't claim it's "green", but you kind of get that impression from comments on certain recipes.
Alot of the food recipes are just plain dumb. Maybe it's geared towards people who buy packaged EVERYTHING, but I'm not one who ever bought packaged muffins, so it isn't earth shattering to me that I can save money by making my own.
The cleaning recipes are awesome. I'd buy the book just for that.
The personal care ones are pretty good too.
Overall, a great book!
Speaking from experience on making these products...some of the recipes in this book are more complicated or have more ingredients that what's really necessary. One recipe called for raisins in dog food/biscuits. Grapes and raisins are not good for dogs and quite honestly not a necessary ingredient to make dog biscuits. Honestly, spend your money on other books because this one serves as a poor reference.
ingredients are 3/4 cup of beer and one cup of any kind of shampoo
and thats it. i kind of expected to see more. its paperback, and about 400 pages
it has other things like play clay for kids to back pain remedies also
