Sunday is Laundry Day

I have been putting off the laundry for too long. Fortunately, I happen to enjoy the process so off I go…

Here’s the recipe I use to make home made green laundry powder. It works wonderfully and is easy to mix together.

1 bar (4-6 oz.) Castile soap, grated

2 cups Borax

2 cups washing soda (in laundry aisle)

1 cup baking soda

essential oils (optional)

Combine first four ingredients. Add several drops of your favorite essential oil, if desired. I love to use lavender. Store mixture in covered jar and add 1/4 – 1/2 cup to each load of laundry.
