Let's face it. We all know I'm not a "Domestic Diva." My house is usually strung from one end to the other with toys, I really only cook 1 day a week and my Grandma does most of my laundry.
But last Monday - Labor Day - I got all domestic. I made laundry detergent and fabric softener. Like in a pot, at home. Yes you heard me right! I saw the laundry detergent recipe on Laura's blog and thought it looked really easy. Plus its like $6.00 to make enough for 576 loads. Then while I was at it I decided to look around online and see if there were any recipes for fabric softener. There are all kinds but this is the one that we used:
2 cups hair conditioner (I used the cheap Suave stuff)
3 cups white vinegar
6 cups water
That's it! I whisked it really good and poured it in a big bottle. Just give it a lil shake every time you use it!
So far I'm pretty impressed with how well these work. So if you're looking for a little rainy day project give it a try.
That same day I did about 6 loads of laundry. Beacause it was Monday. Nana Jane usually comes on Monday.
Mom & I had gone to the grocery store that morning and I bought a TON of groceries becuase we had no food. Then I went home and made 3 dinners. I found some recepies online that you can assemble in gallon freezer bags - thaw them out the night before - and then throw in the crockpot when you go to work. When we actually eat one of these I'll post the receipe if it's worth a shit.
Then I made banana bread in the crockpot. Seriously, I think you can make anything in there! Mom & Dad came for dinner and Ray and Sue stopped by. It was a great day :)
PS. I placed my first print order last night - and it wasn't my Mom. I'm beyond excited!
