Domestic Diva

The other day Carrie from Farming on Faith left me a comment saying that she had just run across my blog. I am so glad she found me! I went over to visit her blog and knew right away I'd found one of my new favorite bloggers!

I learned quite a lot during my visit. Like.....
how to make dishwasher detergent with these ingredients,
fabric softener using these items
and laundry detergent with these items.
Price break down -
about $1.86 for 30-40 (?) loads worth of dishwasher detergent
about $1.40 for about 65 loads worth of fabric softener
around $1.20 for 5 gallons of laundry detergent
I felt like such a domestic diva as I was mixing up all these money saving cleaner recipes. :o)
You need to check out Carrie's blog if you want to start saving money on cleaning products. It's also nice to know exactly what is going into all my cleaners now. Everything was so simple to make and it was quick too. And how else are you going to get 5 GALLONS of laundry detergent for under 2 dollars?

Thank you Nichole for your sweet words. My prayer is to encourage others. Your blog is just lovely!

That is awesome. I love all of these ideas. I will go look at her blog also. Yes, laundry detergent for under $2 is amazing!

Thank you for sharing these. I have been really struggeling with using some of the chemicals these days. Learning all that they are doing to our food and to our own bodies. Scary! Can you use that detergent with the HE washers?

I'll have to stop by her website. We spend alot of money on dishwasher detergent.
