Hi, we’re Matt and Betsy Jabs, and we’re glad you finally made it here.

You’re here because – like us – you care about making this world a better place.

We do what we do because we want to help, and one of our missions in life is to promote the sustainable living revolution.

We were so tired of all the chemicals in expensive commercial cleaners, and knew we had to do something about it; so rather than climbing a soapbox to complain, we committed to incite change by changing ourselves.

After awhile our passion for positive change led us to create and grow a community of like minded people.

People like you!

Inspiring and growing the diyNatural community is the key to real change, but it only started because we made the commitment to change ourselves.

That’s what diyNatural is about.

That’s why we wrote this diyNatural Household Cleaners book.

And that’s why we’re in the process of writing several more books; one about homemade personal products and another about homemade natural condiments.

The time for change is now!

Margaret, age 22, Alabama says:

“I gave the Natural Cleaners Guide to my mother and sister after buying it myself.  The chemical-free habits and all natural mentality that it has given me is wonderful.  I love finding ways to simplify my life and my cabinet space, along with creating practical household necessities.  The essential oils make a big difference.  Thank you for teaching the average American consumer how to get behind the expensive label and naturally clean our homes.”

Dianne, age 34, from Anchorage says:

“I have been having all kinds of fun with the DIY book, especially with the oils. What an awesome idea to have a kit already recommended. I have been wanting to experiment with oils forever and again you guys just made it too easy to resist! For anyone looking for a fun way to pass the time, I highly recommend DIY Natural! Dig up some old containers and spray bottles, round up the kids, and have fun playing chemist in your own kitchen! Thanks again Matt and Betsy for making this so fun, simple, and economical!”

It’s Time to BE THE CHANGE We Want to See

Like you, we’re fed up with products loaded with chemicals we know nothing about. Do the chemicals in everyday cleaners promote cancer? Do air fresheners cause allergies? Do the ingredients in common cleaners contribute to autism and ADHD? We can’t be sure but the studies don’t look good… and that is not okay.It’s time for a change.

Millions of people are searching the Internet for instructions on making non-toxic homemade products, and the numbers are growing like crazy. The unsustainable systems our culture has been creating and using for decades are collapsing around us and a paradigm shift is well underway – are you on board?

It’s time to make a difference by living out the positive changes you want to see.

Kathy, age 58, from Michigan says:

“I feel wonderful to be able to contribute in a small way to reclaiming our earth to be a healthy homebase for the human race.  Your book about homemade cleaners was the beginning for me.  Since reading it, I have been making my own household detergents and cleaners, and I really enjoy the benefits of purifying my air with your essential oils spray recipes. Thanks Matt and Betsy for helping to empower me to reclaim the earth!”

Rebecca, age 18, from Oregon says:

“I am very pleased with the e-book, such a wide range of cleaners, my favorite is the laundry soap (dry). I still have so many cleaners to try! I’m also impressed by how many cleaners you can make from such a small number of ingredients.”

Kay, age 56, from Mississippi says:

“Love your book. Keep going back to it for cleaning ideas for the bathroom.”

 Kristie, age 33, from Michigan says:

“Over the past few years I’ve been growing increasingly suspicious of the products I use and their possible negative effects on the environment.  I turned to paying high prices at my local co-op to ensure I was using the safest, most environmentally friendly ingredients.  This didn’t last long, unfortunately, and I went back to my old ways as money grew tight.   Now, as a new mom, the’ mother bear’ in me is in full effect and I look at the ingredients in everything.  For example ‘fragrance’.  What is ‘fragrance’? Do I need ‘fragrance’ in my laundry detergent? Does my baby need ‘fragrance’ on her clothes? No.  Which is why I am so grateful to Matt and Betsy.  They’ve done the homework for me and I can now easily afford environmentally friendly/baby friendly products (that smell good naturally!).  I know that I am providing the purist environment possible for my little one. I highly recommend your book and website to anyone looking to make their home and natural environment safer to all. Thank you Matt and Betsy for creating this life changing guide!”

Joan, age 44, from California says:

“I really like the laundry detergent. Gave some to my son in college who is trying very hard to save money. He liked your shampoo and toothpaste. I make up your mouthwash and use it regularly. I also use the toothpaste recipe. Made up the concoction for the overnight toilet bowl cleaner. That worked well also. Thanks for the book.”
