Cleaning Out The Clutter’s Top 10 Posts of 2013

by Krista Davis on December 30, 2013

We have been busy this year, both with the Cleaning Out The Clutter, and in our personal lives. Let’s look at our Top 10 Posts of 2013 (based on number of views).

1.       All About Homemade Cloth Baby Wipes and Wipe Solutions

Cloth Baby Wipes

Evidently, many families have decided to take a healthier and eco-friendly approach to cleaning little behinds (or big behinds if you use them as a family cloth, like I do). This was by far our most popular post written to date (with over 12,000 views this year) and the one with the most questions asked.

2.       Washing Clothes by Hand and Tips for Line Drying

Washing Clothes by Hand (In a Bucket or Tub) and Drying Clothes on a Line

Many responses state that this article has helped them in a washing machine crisis, or with ideas to improve their hand washing routine.

3.       A Menstrual Cup is a Girl’s Best Friend

A Menstrual Cup is a Girl's Best Friend

I will admit, I loved writing this article. I’ve always been out spoken and not afraid to talk about “personal” issues, so getting into how to improve menstruation habits was perfect for me.  I’m actually planning additional posts on this subject, since I have learned even more this past year.

4.       Eco-Friendly,  All Natural,  Homemade Powdered Laundry Detergent

EcoFriendly All Natural Homemade Laundry Detergent

This was a real revelation for me. To really look into the individual ingredients on what is being used and to look for both health and environmental effects is important. I will say, I got a major complement after I made a batch for my very picky grandmother, and she kept raving about how much she loves it during Christmas dinner.

5.       Homemade Almond Coconut Oil Moisturizer

Homemade Almond Coconut Moisturizer

This moisturizer has become my favorite beauty product.  We always make some when my teenage and preteen sisters visit, just because it smells so good and really makes your skin feel and look great.

6.       Whole Wheat and Coconut Oil Pie Crust

Whole Wheat and Coconut Oil Pie Crust

I love this pie crust!!! I’m pretty sure all of my family and friends know that by now, because I talk about it every time I make a sweet potato pie, which has been a few times a month this fall and winter.

7.       My Favorite Eco-Friendly Products

REusable Sandwich and Snack Bags

When writing this article I realized just how much my husband and I have changed our lives. It also inspired me to look for additional ways to live an eco-friendly and healthy lifestyle.

8.       Christmas on a Budget

Christmas on a Budget

My mom, Rhonda Wylie, did a nice article on presents that don’t break the bank. There are several good ideas for different DIY gifts.

9.       High Energy Fruit Smoothie

High-Energy Fruit Smoothie

This has been a popular smoothie recipe that my mom uses regularly. Anything to add a natural source of energy is needed.

10.   Baked Pork Chops and Brown Rice

pork chops and rice

My mom’s baked pork chops and brown rice recipe make me hungry just thinking about it. Yummy!

Now we know more about what type of posts you enjoy reading.  2014 will expand on ideas from above and continue to provide additional inspiration. Was there a post we wrote that you loved, but wasn’t mentioned? Comment to let us know what type of posts you want more of; if it is something we have never experienced we love to do research and try new things.
