Homemade Regular Laundry Detergent/Soap

Today I'm sharing a regular laundry cleaner.  This works well for laundry that isn't extremely dirty, greasy or ground -in. A simple color safe add in will make a batch that will have a little stronger detergent.  Join me today and if you haven't done so in the past maybe you'll decide to make your own.  Make in bulk and you can save time and lots of money in the long run.

Laundry Room Talk: Homemade Laundry Detergent Essentials & Tips

Hello it's Monday!
Here at Hibiscus House the first thing that comes to mind is today is "Laundry Day". That might not be the whole truth because the first thing that comes to mind is a great cup of coffee and then laundry!  Join me today as we tackle the subject of making our own laundry detergent.

Laundry Room Talk: Soaps for Homemade Laundry Mixes

I know you've seen all over the internet the homemade laundry soap/detergents.  There are many of them out there. Have you made your own laundry detergent or I should say soap yet?  I have been making and using some on most of our laundry for a few years now. Chuck needs the liquid store bought detergent and fabric softener on his working uniform simply because that is what he likes for work. His other clothing is washed with my homemade mixes.  Today I talk about some of the different bar soaps to make your own laundry soaps with.  Join me won't you...

Twine, Hammer Head, Lard Bucket, Ma's Pie Safe and More

Do you have furniture pieces that have been handed down to you?  We do Chuck and I both.  This particular pie safe belonged to his grandmother.  They called her "Ma".  A very sweet and beautiful lady she was.

This piece of furniture ended up being a catch all!  You know a place for all who walked by to keep something safe until later.  I do mean all too.  I have even been known to store a Chris Pratt Lego in there for my grandson.

The question is do I dare share the complete before and after?  Most importantly do I dare share the before?  Oh alright I'll show you what happens when everybody throws something into a drawer or cabinet and you don't think about it for years.  You only go in to grab what you need and then shut it back real quick and be on your way.

I stopped to look inside the other day and this is what I saw!  The horror!

Gentle Wash Super Concentrated Laundry Liquid

Hello, I am in the process of bringing my cleaning combinations over here to the main website from Dolly is Cooking.  I want that website to be for recipes only those and the occasional product review.

Today I am working on a substitute for Woolite which I use for my gentle and hand wash items.

If This Chair Could Talk

Take a look at this little dry, cracked little chair. It was going to be thrown away.  I couldn't let that happen.  It is in dire need of repair and I need to do something about that. There is a little story behind this chair.  As a matter of fact behind all of the chairs that have been waiting in storage for quite a while.
