TPH-Episode 6


This week I have some listener feedback, a shoutout to my Podkin and some updates from the homestead. I discuss some herbs used for the treatment of colds and flu and the featured animal on Ancestral Animals is the Buckeye chicken. And this month will feature Halloween folktales.

4 cups water

2 cups white vinegar

2 cups baking soda

Place water and vinegar in a container. Slowly add the baking soda being careful not to let the mixture overflow. Stir when finished. Use about a 1/4 cup per load. The baking soda will settle at the bottom but just give it a good shake and it will be ready in no time.
