Loads of Fun

I have this sign hanging up  in my laundry room. I don't know if I actually feel that way about laundry but any motivation helps.
The girls informed me that we were out of laundry soap shortly after I had gotten back from my shopping trip in town. I had bought the supplies to make my own soap awhile back and figured this was the perfect opportunity to give it a try. I decided to use a dry soap recipe even though we usually use liquid soap. I may try that another time.  It is very easy to do. You use three ingredients.

 One bar Fels-Napha, 1 cup Arm and Hammer Washing Soda, and 1 cup Borax
Start with grating the soap with the finest part of the grater.
Next add 1 cup of the Washing Soda and 1 cup of the Borax
Mix together well.

Use 1-2 Tablespoons with each load.
Very simple.
I will try it and see how well it works.
I have read good reviews from others who had used the homemade soaps.
I am just glad that I had the supplies on hand. The last place I wanted to go is to the store and deal with the Holiday Rush, again.
Happy Washing!
