I always thought it would be kind of complicated to make my own laundry detergent. Why? No idea. It has been sitting there patiently on my list of things to do this year. So after finding the necessary ingredients (thank you Target, you are worth the drive) I took to it today. Having lost (of course) the original recipe I had found from the library, I remembered this post over at Red Gate Gardens last month. So after assembling my three ingredients, two mixing bowls and grater, I managed to get it done in say, oh 10 minutes (minus photography time of course). Because I do like a nice scent we used a bar of handmade honeysuckle soap that I bought from Etsy earlier this year. It almost looked good enough to eat, the washing soda in the green mixing bowl and those sweet white curlicues laying on top.
I know that this is definitely the way to go from now on. Less trash, less money, another handmade off the checklist.
