Using my affiliate links is like leaving me a tip and very much appreciated. Not every link that is on my blog or posts are affiliates.
I am very careful in the products that I choose to affiliate with. If I do not, or would not, use them in my own household, then I will not recommend them to you. That said I also want to point out that I am not a doctor. I am not a nutritionist or any of the sort. I am a regular person, and Mom, who knows what products work for my family. If you choose to try any products listed on my sight, please know that I cannot guarantee the same results for you. This is what works for me and my family and I just want the opportunity to share with others.
External links and websites can change over time, I will try hard to keep links in old posts updated/corrected where needed. But, let’s be honest, that’s not an easy task to keep up with. If you find a broken link, please let me know and I will do my best to fix it or take it down if I cannot.

For elderberries, currants and other berries difficult to get off their vines – use a juicer! This is a large pot with a strainer inside and a rubber hose out from the bottom (Bi-Mart carries them in Oregon) Just rinse berries, remove leaves and such, pour them in the strainer and leave simmering for as long as it takes to get all juice from your berries (or fruit). You can then add in your other ingredients for syrups, tinctures, etc. The left-overs in the pot are great to add to your compost!
I don’t generally have a lot of extra money to buy anything extra, so I just make do with what I got. I froze them and they separated from the stems quite easily. Thanks for the tip though. I’ll keep that in mind If I’m ever able to get my hands on that sort of juicer. 😉
I came across your laundry detergent recipe from a friend of mine. I plan on using it for cloth diapers. My question is, can it be used with a high efficiency washer? Does the measurement per load change?
