DIY crafting is super-trendy these days, but did you
know that making your own stuff also saves money and helps animals?
This easy "recipe" for DIY laundry
detergent calls for no animal testing and no animal lard—yup, no lard, which is used in a lot of soaps.
Just three simple ingredients and a little bit of
elbow grease and you're on your way to clean clothes, the animal-friendly way.
You can find borax and washing soda in the laundry

organic products aisle. Note: You don't have to use Dr. Bronner's—any
bar soap will do—but before you decide on a type of soap, double-check that it
doesn't contain animal ingredients!
