Doing Laundry: Where is that darn Laundry Fairy?

I think out of all my mommy jobs at home the laundry has to be one chore I hate the most. What about you? The laundry fairy has let me down so many times over. That pile of socks, towels and underwear seems to reproduce nightly. Even with some of the most up to date washers and dryers in my laundry room, the laundry fairy just can't get the job done. Sometimes she just needs some help. Just where is that darn laundry fairy at anyhow??

Make your own laundry soap with this recipe that works great and saves a great deal of money yearly:

Homemade Laundry Soap:
{find all ingredients at Walmart or order online at Amazon}
  • 1 cup Borax
  • 1 cup Super Washing Soda
  • 1 Bar Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar Soap
  1. - Grate a bar of soap onto a plate with a cheese grater. Then add all the shavings to pot of water on the stove. Stir continually over medium heat until your soap fully dissolves.
  2. - Next, fill a 5 gallon bucket ½ full of hot water from the sink. Then add in your melted soap from the pot on the stove, plus Borax, and washing soda.
  3. Stir well until all powder is dissolved {My kids love to help me stir. Use extreme caution though b/c it’s boiling hot!}
  4. Fill the remaining space in the bucket to top with additional hot water from the sink. Stir all the ingredients in the bucket well.
  5. Fill an empty laundry jug ½ full with the result of this concentrated recipe. Next, fill the remaining space in your laundry jug with water. This recipe will gel. Shake before each use. (will gel)
  6. -Yield: Liquid soap recipe makes 10 gallons.
  7. Enjoy!
