In the washing of the water will you take it all away

by Amy Turn Sharp


I have been embracing my inner ecocheapchic this week. I collected the simple materials and made my own laundry detergent today. I felt like a pathfinder in the previously unexplored area of frugal and eco laundry arts. It was simple really.


Grate a bar of soap...You can use Ivory or Fels Naptha- I used a micro planer tool.


Scour yr local haunts and find washing soda and Borax.


Mix 1 cup Borax, 1 cup washing soda, and grated bar of soap.


Package Pretty and enjoy.

I might add some essential oil next time for scent- but I just washed a load and it smells fine- just clean.

It is cleaning day. Finn washed floors for me. I can see the bottom of my sink again. Things are better. Finn is going to visit the Olentangy Indian Caverns today with his auntie and uncle and me and Blaise are gonna chill. I think it's a John Hughes DVD kinda late afternoon. Happy Weekend. xo
