Bulk Order Update

Hi everyone,

The bulk orders are still going on for the Bosh mixers, 3 cookbooks, nuclear kit, handwashers and pasta. There has been a great desire for fels-naptha, so I will place another order of that. Deadline is April 10th. Just e-mail me your specific orders and I will e-mail your amount back to you. If you want more specific info. on the things that we are ordering, just read on down further and get the information that you need.


If you are wondering “what’s the big deal about the Fels-naptha”, it is simple: a seriously cheap way to make your own healthy clothes detergent that isn’t full of chemicals and fillers. With 1 bar of soap, 1 c of washing soda and 1/2 c of borax, you can make 10 GALLONS of liquid/gel washing detergent that can last a really long time, or many loads of washing. That is AMAZING in itself! If you want other recipes for laundry detergents that are liquid, powder and softeners, go here for more info. http://aprilshowerspreparedness.com/category/classes/laundry-ideas/


For those who ordered Fels-Naptha, Washing Soda or Borax a few weeks ago, I am on my way to pick it up. You can get it from me after 5:00 tonight, or tomorrow morning before 3:00 or again after 5:00 daily pm.


The Bulk Seed order has been placed, so please, if you haven’t already, get Rebekah your money ASAP.


Looking ahead to the month of April.


If you have any recipes that include sprouts, could you please share them with all of us? Just e-mail me your favorites, and I will send them out to our group before our sprouting class.


Here’s a peek into our bulk orders coming in April:
