Yesterday, I made my own laundry soap (is that a craft?). I get pissed off every time I buy laundry soap because I feel like it is such a waste of money…and I’d rather buy nail polish because it’s a better investment.
The only “difficult” part was grating the soap.
And while that took a little while (I used the hand grater method), it wasn’t difficult and it smelled pretty good.
It did weird me out a little that it looked so much like grated cheddar cheese. I was tempted to create nachos for G to try out, but decided to be nicer than normal. I’m also pretty sure G would have eaten them and not noticed anything was wrong until he was sh*tting his pants.
After grating the soap, I poured all the other ingredients into a 5 gallon bucket lined with a garbage bag. The most difficult part about that was opening the damn boxes.
Then I just stirred it all up.
And that was it! Now we have about a year supply of laundry soap (I hope) for the excellent price of $20.63.
Now that is a great deal!
