Stop the Violence, #AmericanStrong, Please vote for my design.

This is my design for a reusable shopping bag. In light of recent attacks on our American people, I felt this would be a nice design to increase awareness and support. Please stop by the Kroger website here and vote for this design daily until May 13,2013. Please help make this a new Kroger Reusable Shopping Bag. I would love to have this bag to carry.

You may have to search by name…Kathy D. to find it quicker.

Thanks to you all.

Make your own laundry detergent and/or fabric softener!!!

You can make you own laundry detergent to save money as well as save the Earth. Not only will you not be wasting all those plastic bottles but by using homemade cleaning products you will be helping keep harmful chemicals, which can lead to water contamination and health issues, away from the environment!!

You can either store this in a 5 gallon bucket with lid or re-use any type of bottles, milk jugs, mason jars or even large coffee containers.

Here is what You will need for homemade Laundry Detergent:

– 1 box of Arm & Hammer washing soda

– 1 Any Bar Soap that you normally use for showers

– 1 Box of Borax

– A five gallon bucket with a lid

– Three gallons of tap water

– A big spoon to stir the mixture with

-A measuring cup

Step 1~ Put 4 Cups of Water into a Pan, with your bar of soap, turn the heat to high and stir as it melts. You will see it turning the water to whatever color your bar of soap is. Let the whole bar of soap melt down and then your going to turn off the heat. You will have a pan full of soapy water.

Step 2~ I put in 3 gallons of Hot Water into my 5 Gallon Bucket. Then I pour in my Hot Soap Water from my pan. I then measure out 1 Cup of Washing Soda and mix it in the bucket with the soapy water till it dissolves. I then add 1/2 Cup of Borax and mix it up again till it dissolves. When this is done and it has all dissolved I put the lid on the soap and let it sit for 24 hours to set.

Then use 1 cup of the laundry soap per load to wash the clothes. If you have a tough stain, take a little and rub it in before the stain sets so that it will get the stain out.

Around my house, this will last about 3 months before a new batch is needed.

 

If you want to go a step further, you can also make your own fabric softener.

 

What you will need to make Fabric Softener:

-1 gallon bucket with lid

-water

-1 cup baking soda

-6 cups white vinegar

-Essential oil of your preferred fragrance

-A measuring cup

-A big spoon to stir the mixture with

 

~Step 1- Pour 1 cup of water into your bucket followed by 1 cup of baking soda. Add 6 cups of white vinegar slowly to the bucket. The mixture will bubble up. Let the mixture bubble and fizz as you add the full amount of vinegar.

~Step 2-Add 6 cups of water after a few minutes to stop the bubbling. Stir everything well to thoroughly mix the solution.

~Step 3- Add 10 to 20 drops of your preferred essential oil to add a fragrance to your softener. More oil will make a stronger scent. Stir to mix the oil in. Store the bucket with the lid on or reuse any type of container as above. Use 1 cup of the fabric softener per load, just as you would any commercial fabric softener.

Now you can feel good about helping the environment as well as your wallet!
