Bottling Laundry Soap


Here is a photo of the laundry soap I bottled up today.
I ended up with around 10 gallons.
There is still some left in the bucket.
Total cost was less than $3 for all this soap.

Materials were Fels Naptha Soap, Borax, and Washing Soda.




Each time I make the soap it takes one bar of Fels Naptha, so I just buy it by the case.  The boxes of borax and washing soda have lasted through three 10 gallon cycles and still are at least a third full.

I'm going to record the date in my bullet journal and see how long it lasts.
One capful per load is plenty.

Also, we put a dehumidifier in the basement yesterday to see if it would make a difference in the smell of the house. This old house was built in 1930 and when I returned from Spain, an "old person" smell hit me in the face when I walked in. I'm hoping the dehumidifier will make a difference.

I just checked it and there's already over half a gallon in the container and it's only been running 4 hours.

Getting the house back in order, minimizing, and working on the studio has been fun, but tiring. I'm looking forward to spending a few days at the beach next weekend with some friends.

Did I tell you we have a neighborhood turkey? She leaves eggs at the neighbors and we share them.  They're much larger than chicken eggs and really rich. We aren't sure where she came from but we're happy she has adopted us!



I love being home!
It's always such an adventure!

Love,
Annie
