Laundry does not end. Whether its towels, sheets, or just clothes, there always seems to be more to do. I hated having to buy laundry detergent, fabric softener, bleach, and even dryer sheets. Everything was so expensive! And we used it up so quickly that it always seemed like we were on the verge of running out. In fact, it was so ridiculous that I finally decided that doing laundry needed to be simpler too!
With just a few common household ingredients and directions from mommypotamus, I made my own laundry soap! I also no longer buy bleach, fabric softener or dryer sheets!
Other Laundry Alternatives (more information at mommypotamus):
Fabric Softener: a little white distilled vinegar
Bleach Alternative: peroxide
Stain Remover/de-greaser: Lemon Essential Oil
And, if I am using the dryer (instead of line drying) I use Woolzies Dryer Balls instead of dryer sheets! I will never buy dryer sheets again!
Hi there! I'm Kathie, the author behind Creating A Simpler Life blog. I'm excited to share our longterm projects (and planning) toward building our future retirement homestead in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. In the meantime I will be sharing all the other little things we do that are part of creating our simpler life!
