laundry...the homemade way :)

I'm not sure about you, but I am always looking for ways to cut down on costs and use products that are a bit more eco-friendly.

As I was searching for some information on laundering cloth diapers (just doing a little research before we get started in a few weeks), I came across a fabulous website!

For the past 6 months or so I have been using homemade laundry detergent from here (the one I use is a powder detergent...recipe #4). I've really been thinking that it would be nice to make some more of my own cleaning products, because this one works so well and is pretty easy and cheap to make! That takes me back to the fabulous website I mentioned earlier!

As I was looking for cloth diaper laundry methods and such, I found a recipe for homemade fabric softener that you can either use in your rinse cycle or make dryer sheets with (<--my preference). She said that for her, each batch will do about 50 loads of laundry and only costs about 50 cents to make! Talk about saving some money :)

This lady also had a recipe for homemade Febreeze which I cannot wait to try!

Guess I will do a follow-up in a few weeks to let you know what I think about these things once I've tried them!
