Scrub A Dub Dub from Appalachian Quilts

Remember Larry Luffa?  He outdid himself this year.  We ended up getting a lot of luffas this year.  A lot of people don't realize that luffas are actually a variation of squash plant you can grow yourself.  Luffas make a great exfoliator for your skin, but did you know they are awesome to use on your pots and pans?  I can't even tell you the last time I have had to buy a scrubby for my pots and pans.  I made a batch of soap once that I really wasn't happy with (had a luffa in it ...

It Was a Bust! ...and More Green Cleaning.... from Appalachian Quilts

The Open House yesterday (tied in with the Quilt Barn Tour) was a complete bust!  I found out later that there were only 6 barns tied in to a 2-hour tour.  No wonder there weren't many people who did it.  I am thankful and grateful for those who did come out to support us.  I got to visit with some dear friends.  

In today's green cleaning, we are going to make our own Wood Furniture Cleaner.  This recipe is for a small batch.  Because there is lemon juice in it, if you make a larger batch, you would ...
