So far, I have had great success with homemade laundry powder and the DIY liquid soap. I love that making your own means you know exacty what’s in the products you are using.
You also get to choose the scents; for the laundry powder I added lavender essential oil, and my washing smells lovely. For the liquid soap I chose a rose soap and a vanilla bean soap. The combination works really well, and it makes so much soap it will last for ages.
I took a few photos of the laundry powder making…
I have to confess to buying an old fashioned label-maker, to label-up all my lovely new cleaning products! At risk of sounding like a 1950s housewife, I have a cleaning cupboard to be proud of!
