So today I had an early morning meeting. I am not too much on laying out what I am going to wear the night before for anything. But I am early riser, so I feel that I have the luxury of time on my side.
Well guess what, the pair of slacks that I intended to wear needed to be washed. No problem, still have plenty of time to wash, dry and press them. Another surprise, out of laundry detergent. Still no problem! I don’t have to go to the store.
You see, several weeks ago I tried one of the homemade laundry detergent recipes on Pinterest and so I had all of the ingredients to make another batch. Voila, laundry detergent on demand and at a fraction of the cost.
There are several recipes on Pinterest. I used the one with the bar of soap. But I found one later that uses liquid dishwashing soap, so when I need to replace the soap, I’m going to try it.
It is sooo easy and when I say a fraction of the cost, it is a fraction of the cost. Total for the ingredients was less than $10. But one recipe makes 5 gallons. You read correctly, 5 gallons. So I parsed out the ingredients to make it one gallon at a time. So now when I need laundry detergent, it is at my beckon call..
Check it out if you are all for saving money, time, and want to put fewer plastic bottles in the environment. Good luck!
