Yay! I FINALLY found washing soda (not the same as baking soda) so that I can make my own laundry detergent. I have a few recipes that I want to try…this one is the famous “Duggar Recipe” that almost everyone has heard of. I could not find the Fels Naptha soap for this time, so I’m using Ivory.
I love the smell of Ivory. It totally reminds me of my grandma…because a bath at her house meant Ivory soap, then standing there giggling as she absolutely covered us with powder (from a poof). That woman loved her powder.
Anyway, it was very easy to put together, and I’ll give it a try in laundry tomorrow. I’ve been saving my old detergent bottles, and I’m going to put different essential oils in each one (and one with none at all) and see which one I like the best.
I also found a great place online to order the Fels Naptha soap…so I went ahead and did that. $11 for 7 bars, shipped.
My whole house smells good now. I hope tomorrow my clothes will smell this good (and look clean)!
