A peek into my life this week.
We made laundry soap.
It was SO EASY.
I have been using this homemade laundry soap recipe for a while now. It is a fairly easy recipe, but I just don’t like having to grate the soap…I know…I’m lazy.
Then I stumbled on this homemade liquid laundry soap recipe on Pinterest, and I am sold—at least on the preparation factor.
- 3 Tablespoons of borax
- 3 Tablespoons of washing soda
- 2 Tablespoons of Dawn
- 4 cups of boiling water
- Put it all in a gallon jug (I used an old milk carton.)
Once it is cooled, fill to the top with water.My friend Nancy just informed me that she omits this step, and uses 1/8 c of the concentrated mixture per load!
I told you—easy peasy, and extremely inexpensive.
I have only used it on one load of laundry, so its effectiveness it yet to be seen. I used our tea kettle to boil the water, and both my 4 year old and almost 2 year old helped me measure out the ingredients!
Speaking of the 4 and 2 year old…
…just a glimpse into our lives…and how quickly moments go from fun and sweet to, well, you saw it.
My favorite post from the week
“So, I will once again
Release my firm hold on that which was never mine to grasp!
AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN!
And I will live by faith not by sight!
I will LOOK to HIM!
I will TRUST in HIM!
I will find PEACE & JOY & STRENGTH in HIM!”

Have a great weekend!
Have you tried to make your own laundry soap before?
Have any recipes to share? I would love to know if any of you use your own dishwasher detergent?
