Laundry Soap II



In my first post about making laundry soap, I mentioned another recipe that I wanted to try. Well, I made it on July 22nd. This is the recipe I used:
  • 1 4 lb 12 oz box Borax

  • 1 4 lb box Baking Soda

  • 1  box Super Washing Soda

  • 3 bars of Fels-Naptha soap, grated

  • 2 small containers of store brand Oxy Clean
I grated the Fels-Naptha soap in the food processor for the first time. A little tricky, but I liked the end result better. I like my soap to be finely grated. I used a bucket lined with a trash bag as suggested and dumped everything in and mixed with my hands. Then, I poured it into a cheap 2 gallon container from Walmart, slapped a label on it, and began using it.I really like it and will continue to use this recipe. It was everything I used before except for the baking soda and Oxy Clean. I am pleased with the washing results and it's lasting longer than I expected.

An aside: a few days ago at our local Family Dollar store, I found this soap. I have heard of it but never have seen it. Well, I snatched that baby up. Can't wait to try it. Although, that might have to wait awhile. lol.



Have you ventured in the world of making your own laundry soap yet? If so, share your experience.

Update: This batch lasted me until approximately April 20th. So that's 2 days short of 9 months. Yes, I did make another batch. Not buying laundry soap for 9 months, I'll take that. Now I'll try adding in some EOs.

Expansion

Early this morning we had an eclipse of the moon. It was a full moon and the eclipse turned the moon red. I have been noticing the effects of the moon on my body and mood since September when I had a return of my panic attacks.I finally feel that I've conquered that with the help of meds and meditations. Lot's of meditation, relaxing music, plenty of spiritual reading, and soul searching. 

Everything isenergy. Even us. So when I get anxious and nervous now, I try to remember that it's just energy. That what I'm feeling is the energy in me and all around me. I'm fine and everything is okay and as it should be. I take deep breaths and make sure I work on clearing my chakras everyday and do my meditations at night. I want to get off the meds, but my intuition is telling me to wait until I am whole. I don't feel whole quite yet. But, everyday things are getting better. I'm feeling a calmness and serenity in me. I'm feeling happier and more joyful everyday.

Conflicting Feelings

My fingers are itching to type and my mind is in overdrive again. It's scary to pour your heart out. But, I did get a good response on my last post. The response was on Facebook. I really really wish people would comment on the blog post itself also :)

Well, maybe I should explain why I am so upset with religion??

Religion specifically Christianity;

We are taught:

To be separate from the world; to not mix and mingle with the world; if you do you will be influenced by them for the badTo just listen to God's laws and if you don't you are a problemThat we are not to believe in rituals and spiritualism  To listen to God and not ourselves; we just can't be trustedTo look down on people who are not us or who think and act differently (yes, I hear your protests that this is not so)That we are sinners who can never measure up 
Why is this bothering me so?
It has caused me nothing but anxiety attacks and low self-esteemIt has inhibited me from further progressing; my mind has never …

The Best Darn Stain Remover

I got this recipe from Pinterest. This is great for any stain you might have. It's the only thing I use. And it's easy. Easy is my middle name. In more ways than one lol.
In a Spray Bottle mix:

1 part of Dawn Dishwashing Detergent (the old blue kind)
2 parts of Hydrogen Peroxide

Shake. Spray. Throw in the wash.


That's it. It's stinky. But don't let that stop you. It works and it's easy. When you put it through the wash you can't smell it anymore. I promise.
