I turned my old dirty play pen into a puppy pen for my four week old chihuahua puppies.
I covered the mat with black garbage bags and then laid down layers of towels, newspapers, and a top layer of fleece.
I change the top layer twice a day and I change the newspaper every other day.
So far the fleece does a great job of catching all of the puppies waste.
They do however enjoy spilling their water all over which requires a new change of all the layers.

This past month has been filled with trial and error. I started the no-poo method by mixing up the baking soda and apple cider vinegar in ready to use bottles. This way I didn't need to try and measure them out every time. By mixing the baking soda and vinegar up ahead of time I also eliminated any variables in my experiment.
The first couple of weeks my hair kept getting greasier and greasier. Before week three I stopped using the apple cider vinegar because I read it could help the greasiness. This made my hair less greasy but it was still greasier than I wanted it.
After a week I started mixing up the baking soda like a paste. I take the paste and scrub it into my scalp. I let the paste sit for a couple minutes and then rinse it out very well. My hair gets really dry and tangly. After my shower, I comb out my hair very gently.
I think it is safe to say that I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. My hair is finally dry and healthy. I know that my hair is not fully adjusted quite yet but it's close :-)
So now I wash my hair once to twice a week. I love the way it looks. I love the way it feels. I cannot believe it took me so long to jump on the no-poo train (that sounded gross, sorry).
Anyway, the no-poo method takes time to get use to but it is absolutely worth it. I would recommend it to anyone looking to eliminate unneeded products in their life. As well as to anyone looking to get healthy balanced hair while save money at the same time.
If you no-poo too then kudos to you. If you do not no-poo yet then what are you waiting for?
Sorry about the picture I could not get a good angle of my hair. Maybe next time I will get help taking a picture.
