I Made Detergent


I'm storing it in a crockpot that I don't use anymore. But its laundry detergent, and I found the recipe here. I must say I enjoyed doing it, and I can't wait to see how it works. I'll let you know.
I'm very excited to be using something that's environmentally friendly and cost effective at the same time. Oh how that gets me going.
I remember going to a laundromat (when I was younger), that had less than stellar standards for its waste water removal. I could see the suds and dirty water in a creek not far away. On days when there wasn't a lot of business, the water ran so clear, I'd think I could drink that, but when people were doing laundry en masse, the water ran grey. It was saddening.
Now at least the products I'm using can be filtered out during treatment.
ETA (edited to add): I used it Monday when I did laundry, and it worked great, I was very happy with the results and will see how the girls react to it. They have sensitive skin, and I don't want to use anything that would cause them discomfort. So far so good though.
Be Safe.
