i want to start making more of our home cleaning products. i have done this in the past, but they did not smell as nice as the products i usually use, so it did not last long. i like it when the house smells fresh and clean after i do chores, not like chemicals cleaners, but like flowers and herbs, so i usually use mrs. meyer's products. after suki was born i switched our laundry soap to charlie's unscented which works really well. the cleaning products we use are not necessarily bad for health or the environment but i feel bad about all of the plastic packaging. the charlie's soap is not available locally, so it needs to travel a long way before it gets to us, and ends up being a bit pricey after the shipping cost. my friend geoff loaned me a book on affordable and sustainable homemaking, it's called make your place by raleigh briggs. the laundry soap and fabric softener pouch were the first recipes i tried. they seem to work just as well as charlie's and they smell great, i made lavender calendula. i put together this little sample laundry kit for one lucky winner. i will also include the recipe so if you like it you can make more.
