Last week I posted a thread regarding a recipe for making homemade laundry detergent. I found the recipe and spent the day Saturday dragging my grown daughter with me trying to find Fels Naptha Soap and Washing Soda. Finally curosity got the better of her and the look on her face when I told her what I was going to do was priceless. THEN I guess to add fuel to the fire, when asked what my sweetie bought me for Mothers Day I gushed about the TWO bars of soap he had found me and the BOX of washing soda. This morning she landed on the doorstep with two huge bottles of Tide for me. That was before I sat her down and did the math with her. For less than 5.00 and a little elbow grease to grate the soap, my container would out last both of her bottles of Tide that she had spent 40.00 on. The proof was in watching as I pulled loads of laundry out of the washer that were almost blindingly clean. But then I lost her as I threw my clothespins over my shoulder and headed out to the line in 50 degree weather, for after all the sun WAS out! Forever a fan...long live Fels Naptha!
