CHEER-fully Doing Laundry!

Well, I really was afraid to believe it would happen but I had a lot to GAIN by staying positive.  Look what came in with the TIDE ~~~ I have CHEER-fully been doing laundry ALL day.  There they are, my bargain appliances, SNUGGLEd up to my freezer.  Yes, I did get a great price.  It was all on the UP & UP and they were a GREAT VALUE.    Now I am going to WHISK up some homemade fabric softener from the recipe I found on Pinterest, and use it just as soon as I can find a DOWNY ball to purchase. Oh, and the plant?  Remember my saying I had two pieces of geranium I was able to root?  I had just planted them in the red pot.  I still can't believe I finally had a broken piece root! Life is good! :)
Homemade Fabric Softener Recipe
6 cups HOT water
3 cups white vinegar
2 cups (16 ounces) Suave Conditioner for hair
         (or any kind of conditioner you want.  My daughter makes it for me and has used Suave numerous times because it is less than $1 a bottle - even less when you use coupons)
  • Mix the conditioner & hot water well, until conditioner is dissolved completely.
  • Add the vinegar and mix well.
  • Store in a large container such as an empty vinegar bottle
  • Before each use shake well or stir up the contents of the bottle.
  • Pour into a Downy ball or use approximately 2 Tablespoons in the fabric softener dispenser on your washer.

  1. I love those home made cleaning supplies recipes on Pinterest. Great that you don't have to take out your laundry!

    1. I like the homemade cleaning supplies recipes too. I feel like a princess being able to go toss in a load of laundry instead of load it in the car. Hmm, I guess "princess" is wrong, but that is what it feels like to me! :)
