Crafty Cleaning — Part 2

Remember back in February when we made some homemade laundry detergent?  I promised I’d make the gel variety, and the time has come.  A trip to the local grocer to pick up some more washing soda, and the kids and I will be on our way to making a big bucket of goo.

The recipe comes from The Simple Dollar, and it uses the same ingredients as the powdered variety.  The process differs, though, and since it makes a larger batch (you need a 5 gallon bucket with a lid), you won’t be making it every week as with the powdered version.  (More comments and photos to come . . .)

While we’re on topic of “green” living, please check out 350.org.  Have you checked out your own carbon footprint? Like I’ve said before, we all have a role to play in protecting our earth, and often it’s better for our budgets, too.
