For the bathroom
9. Homemade shampoo, soap and more
The cost of soap, shampoo and other personal hygiene products can really add up. Why pay more for chemical-laden soaps when you can whip up an all-natural alternative at home?
Making soap takes a bit of practice, and the task can seem daunting at first. But once you get the hang of the process, it takes less than five minutes to create all-natural soaps and shampoos that are healthy for your family and the planet. Consult this quick and easy guide from Live Strong contributor Christie Bailey to get you started.
10. Reclaimed drawer shelf
Bathroom storage can be a nightmare. Limited counter space, not enough drawers or a way-too-small medicine cabinet can cause a clutter catastrophe. Have no fear, dear remodeler. All you’ll need is a few clever shelves to get the mess under control.
To save on cash, use materials you already have to craft your storage space – like this pretty shelving unit made from an old dresser drawer. Don’t have an old drawer handy? Check out Better Homes and Gardens‘ 30 storage solutions for your bathroom, and find a reuse project that’s a perfect fit.
