I did it ! I made the laundry detergent. I had some moments of doubt…was it thick enough , was it the right color ? Anyways, while I was otherwise occupied cooking my soap (I know you are laughing about this Erin Littleson), the neglected, ignored dog…Ava…peed on my laundry room floor. Yes, right in front of the doggie door. Why ? It could have been the rain, I digress. I cleaned the mess with a towel, the perfect specimen to test my detergent ! I washed the towel with my crafty soap, added a little bleach, and…..IT WORKS ! I am so happy about the fact that I made 2 gallons of detergent. Okay, I will post the recipe later.
