First Weekend of 2012

Hey ya’ll – How’s 2012 going for you guys so far?  I know we’re only 3 days in but I’m having a great time so far.  This post is going to be a hodge-podge of stuff…so sit tight and enjoy!

This weekend I made a couple of things I really enjoyed making.  I made homemade laundry detergent!!!!  It was super easy and It actually works pretty well.  See video below, lol!

Here’s the price break down for you guys.  Like I said in the video; it’s a small upfront investment, but lasts for about 9 months.

Fels-Neptha soap (3 bars) $2.91

Borax $3.38

Washing soda $3.24

Baking soda $2.12

Oxi-clean $7.52

Total: $19.17

So for me it’s worth it because I use 2 or 3 bottles of the $11 Gain per month. Winning!!!

The verdict?  I loved it!!!  It doesn’t have a heavy scent (if you like heavily scented laundry, you may add essential oils).  Cleaned well and you only need a small scoop at a time, I used an old protein powder scoop.  Not really a heavy suds either, but I can tell the clothes are being cleaned :)

I also made a killer pound cake – no picture because I cut that bad boy up and took it to work!  It was great and I’m so excited about perfecting my recipes and hopefully by the end of the summer I will be able to decorate.

Please follow my hunny’s podcast!! Click the link, follow, and listen to them give a male’s on various topics!  If anything you will have a great time because these two are crazy!!

That’s it for this post!  Please let me know what you think of the video and Brian’s show.  He also has a blog, Beyond Now

Have a great day everyone!!!
