You can’t count laundry soap as food storage but I think you can call it a storage essential. My sister-in-law, Kim, has been experimenting with homemade laundry detergent recipes from the web and has posted her success on her blog. I love hearing someone else’s trial and error story before I endeavor to try something new, so I think her post is great. It provides the recipe for the detergent that she has liked best, and the step-by-step process she took to create and use it. Homemade detergent is certainly cheaper than buying store brands, and it can be helpful if you have family members with sensitive skin. I can’t wait to try it myself!
