New Laundry Recipe!

For the past several weeks I’ve been trying a new laundry detergent that I adapted from onegoodthingbyjillee and I love it so I thought I would share it. In the past I have made liquid detergent but I just wasn’t satisfied with the way my clothes came out smelling. Plus- I had to make fabric softener separately. This new recipe is powder detergent that smells good and has softener in it! It also can last you up to a year, depending on how much laundry you do.

I found her recipe and adjusted it just a little for my preference:

 1 box of borax- $4

2 bars of zote soap- $2 (you can also use 3 bars of fels naptha if you prefer its scent)

1 box arm & hammer washing soda- $3

2 tubs oxyclean (I used Sun brand from the DG)- $8

1 big bottle purex crystals- $7
 
Grate the soap and throw everything in a very large covered container and mix it together. I use a barrel that flour was kept in.
 
Use about 2 tbsp. per load.

 

We have had great success with it! Try it out and let me know how you like it!

 

Blessed,

Loot from Faith Consignment

My very awesome MIL got me a gift certificate to Faith Consignment in Alabaster for Christmas. That store is very dangerous! It’s worse than the dollar tree. You go in for a tshirt and come out with a car full! I got to use my gift card yesterday to get some great deals!

huge picture frame: $20
awesome picnic basket: $15
nice wicker laundry basket: $10
japanese table setting for 6: $3.50
I left very excited!

On a related note, I also got seasons 1 & 2 of Jon Kate Plus 8 for free. They were literally giving it away. I don’t watch it, but who can resist free? It’s in great condition so the first person to comment that they want it gets it.

Blessed,
Emily
