I've been happily using a lovely recipe from the earth angel that is ecoMILF for my washing powder but have decided to try using Sunlight Soap this time just for a change...and because castille soap is a little tricky to find in my neck of the woods and a wee bit expensive. Here's the recipe:
1 1/4 cups of bicarb soda
3/4 cup borax (don't be scared...it's a naturally occurring mineral and although poisonous if ingested, makes the environment happy and doesn't harm bubba bottom skin)
1 cup lectric washing soda (I got mine from IGA - the powder dissolves better than the granules so its worth the hunt)
2 finely grated castille soap bars (I initially used a Rose and a Lavender Dr. Bronner's but this time I'm trying Sunlight Soap)
It is easy peasy lemon squeezy to make and you only need about 2 tablespoons per load (for a front loader). It even does a great job of scary "stand up on their own" stained cloth nappies. Eeeek!
Well after such a productive day I think I'll turn in. Best check that Pinky and Perky are fed and watered and that Geraldine hasn't escaped into Margot's flower beds again. Jerrrry!! I'm picturing a quiet night listening to the wireless and passing some khaki thread through my loom....can you tell I seriously loved that show!
Ah the good life! Fictional and in reality!!
