Today I pulled out my food processor. I know it was a wedding gift, but I will confess I don’t remember from who. I will also confess it has been since our newly-wed days that I have used it (no shock there, I am not much of a cook).
As I was using it I giggled to myself… I am guessing that whomever gave us the food processor would have never fathomed what I was using it for today–heck, if you told me back then what I would be using it for, I wouldn’t have believed you.
So, what was I doing??
Making laundry detergent…
I made my first batch about a month ago & it was nearly gone, so I whipped up more today.
It’s very easy to make, saves us some cash & I think our clothes still look & smell great.
Here’s what I use:
1 c. Washing soda
1 c. Borax
1 bar of Ivory soap
A few drops of whatever essential oils I have on hand
With the food processor, I just threw it all in there and pulverized it–took me about 5 minutes total.
Next up, I think I will try dishwashing detergent.
