So here is what is new for the blog this week:
Good Morning Mondays-This will include something to create, whether it be a recipe, a craft, or an idea to try.
Tail Spin Farm Tuesdays-This is going to be what is happening here at the farm. It may include new items for my shop, upcoming classes, or projects going on at the farm.
Wacky Wednesday-If you know our family, you would know our week is not complete without something goofy going on, or strange things that happen. This might include children, animals, or even Hubby...he might be on here a lot:)
Throwback Thursday-Reminiscing about life on the farm. This will include a story, pictures or both.
Friday on the Farm-This will be photos of what has happened during the week on the farm.
So without further ado, onto Good Morning Monday!
Today I am going to share my recipe for laundry detergent. I have been making my own for over 5 years now. I am not a "numbers" girl, but know that this 5 gallon bucket has about $2 of ingredients in it and mine time. That is a pretty good savings in my book.
|What you need|
|Grate your soap you can even use homemade, although I stick with the Fels-Naptha brand|
|Add grated soap to water and boil until dissolved. Make sure to keep an eye on this so it doesn't boil over. Ask me how I know:)|
|Five gallon buckets. These are pretty easy to find these days.|
|Pour in the borax. Remember, I'm not a numbers girl, so I don't measure. If you need to I use about 1 1/2 cups...I think.|
|Same amount with the washing soda|
|Pour in the hot soap liquid|
|Fill the bucket the rest of the way with hot water.|
