I have been wanting to try my hand at making homemade Laundry detergent and finally did it. I LOVE it!!! It was so easy and quick. The hardest part was grating the bar of soap. If you are interested in making you own laundry detergent , please visit Little Birdie Secrets and read their tutorial! You will also find other tips and household ideas at Little Birdie Secrets!
As far as fabric softener, I took a cheap wash rag and soaked it in my favorite liquid fabric softener, rung it out (pour the excess back in the bottle) and put the damp wash cloth in the dryer with my clothes. I use the washcloth about 3-4 times before I soak it again. So far it has worked fine. You can faintly smell the fabric softener and my clothes do not have static cling. I would go through a bottle of fabric softener fast! I bought a new bottle a month ago and it hardly looks like any has been poured out! Just a tip that works for me!!!
Have a great Thurday friends!
