A couple of blogs back I talked about how we were in transition regarding food. Well, this transition has been very pricey. Honestly, we can't afford it. Found that out the hard way. Now it's back to tightening the belt and trying to figure out how to be healthy AND frugal.
One way to do that for us is making our own laundry detergent. I've heard mixed reviews but we seem to do OK with it. Mostly our clothes look pretty clean. I occasionally use spot remover and bleach on whites. Still come out spending much less.
Here's the shelf in our laundry room:
Today I had to make laundry soap. I love the way the Felsnaptha looks when it's all shredded.
Here's the big 5 gallon bucket I put our laundry detergent in:
I keep the measuring cup on top for easy access and the concentrated mix in a jar for spot treatment.. as well as a spot remover spray hanging on the wire rack. There's a bag of clothes pins hanging there as well for when it's nice enough to hang laundry out.
Simple stuff.. and very frugal.
