MYO Laundry Detergent and Fabric Softener

Here are some really neat make-your-own household products. EnJOY...

Homemade Fabric Softener

What you need...
6 cups water
3 cups white vinegar
2 cups hair conditioner
Mix these ingredients together. When you are ready to use this product, use 1/2 cup in your rinse cycle or spray it on a towel and put it in your dryer load.

Thanks to pinterest for the awesome idea.

Homemade disinfectant spray

Cut up citrus fruit and place in container. (You can eat the fruit and leave the rinds.) Pour the vinegar over the rinds and leave for about 3 weeks. When you are ready to use, take out the rind, strain the juice and use. It's great for sanitizing, deodorizing, cutting grease and much more.  Citrus cuts the vinegar smell and gives a fresh scent.

Thanks to Trenches of Mommyhood for the idea.

Homemade Stain remover

-a drop of hydrogen peroxide -a pinch of baking soda
Mix together and put on stain. Let this set for about 15-30 minutes.
Thanks to Rebekah Alfaya for the idea.

Homemade Laundry Detergent

1 Bar of Handmade Cold Process Soap
1 Cup of 20 Mule Team Borax
1 Cup of Arm & Hammer Washing Soda
 For extra cleaning power on heavily soiled linens, you may add 1/4 Cup Oxi-Clean or generic alternative to your wash cycle.

What to do:
First grate your soup. Then mix the other products together and place in a large tub or plastic bag. You use 2 Tablespoons per load of laundry. For liquid laundry soup, click on the link attached

A Tip from It's So Very Cheri: front-load washers require “special soap” for one reason alone – low suds. Because they use less water, they require soap that is less sudsy. The good news is, this homemade detergent is VERY low suds. The ”special” HE detergent is just another advertising mechanism to push consumers to buy “special soap” for unnecessarily high prices. Regardless of your washer type, you can make your own with confidence

Hope you enjoy these tips. - rejoicing in the present
