Make Your Own Laundry Powder

image

Made a video just for you!!

Super easy recipe for a homemade laundry powder. Works great with front loaders too.

Only 4 ingredients to mix together – Borax, Washing Soda, Baking Soda, Boraxo – careful pouring, it can be dusty! Smells a little perfumey when you make it, but doesn’t show up too much at the end of laundering. Believe me, if it did, I’d be annoyed!!

This recipe is certainly easy on the wallet as well and Mama & Papa are loving this one.

If powder just doesn’t do it for ya, try the liquid laundry recipe.

Green Your… [fill in the blank]

What pops into your head? I typed in soap.

Green Your

You can be way more adventurous than me and type in anything! Cars, toothpaste, batteries, beer, cleaning, gardening, feminine hygiene, condoms… You can learn how to green everything!

Green Your….. [then fill in the blank my friend]

I spotted this fun website over at the geeky good green space at TreeHugger.com who of course, gave a solid and thorough review including an invitation to all the Green Your [blank] Smarty Pants to participate and share their Eco-knowledge and contribute to the website. Very cool.

If this Eco-geeky girl didn’t have so many time restraints and commitment issues, I would definitely participate.  But until I clear those up, I think I’ll go type in soap again.
