I really don't like the asthetic of going to all the trouble of making my own unpoo, laundry detergent, household cleaners, etc and then putting their eco-friendly goodness into an old Tide bottle, ya know?<br><br>
What do ya'll put your homemade cleaners into? Anybody got some pretty ideas for me? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I don't know if you have a Cost-Plus World Market store near you or not, but they have AWESOME glass constainers in all shapes & sizes. That's what I use for my homemade laundry soap. They look so cool. I know they have a website, but I don't know if everything they have in the store is available online or not.<br><br>
I have 2 of their glass basins that I use now that we don't have a garbade disposal. One if for what is going to be composted for the garden, and the other is for the garbage.

They have a really nice white enamal/metal box that is just the size of a box of tide and it has a handle. I think it is around $20.<br><br>
It even says DETERGENT on the front. They have matching peices to go with it too.<br><br><a href="http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/ref=bxgy_cc_img_a_13828281/602-5998465-5346217?asin=B0006I20RW" target="_blank">http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html...sin=B0006I20RW</a>

Until you find the perfect containers, you can feel good knowing you are recycling trash by using that old Tide bottle! That's pretty eco-friendly. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
