Magial things

"We hold all sorts of magical things inside ourselves - ideas, poetry, stories, paintings, unique ways to solve problems. Our challenge lies in finding the path to allow the magic out, to express our creative selves." ~ C. Diane Ealy, Ph.D.

Center Piece For Reception Food Table

This is the Center piece I made For the 9th Annual Juried Art Exhibition from
recycle Stuff. Except for the core board I had to make the 9th with. Or I would have used scrap blue Dow board from House construction, TIP-(Dow board I have used a lot to make Props for plays when I did that. If you peal the plastic wrap off it can be painted on with house paint or Acrylic paint. (not spray paint, it will melt) But I was all out of that.

Making My own Landry detergent is a Snap!

Well I am on my second batch. Everyone likes it so far clothes are clean and fresh. Zote is an interesting soap Check out the site Save you Some money and don't take long to make.

10 gallon bucket with lid

med size cooking Pan

wooden spoon just for this

I found that on of those HAND Held BRAUN Just for this. come in handing while you slowly melt the Zote soap.

Hot water

1 cup Washing Soda- Arm and hammer. I cant find this in my limited town so I used regualer cheap laundry detergent for now but I used more

. 1/2 cup Borax

1 Soap bar _I used Pink Zote 14 oz bar I found at Big Lots. It has a slight smell of citranilla( My Husband swears it keeps mosquitoes away) You can use Napa or any bar laundry soap.

  • Grate the bar soap and add to a large saucepan with hot water. Stir over medium-low heat until soap dissolves and is melted.
  • Fill a 10 gallon pail half full of hot water. Add the melted soap, Borax and Washing soda, stir well until all powder is dissolved. Top the pail up with more hot water.
  • Use 1 cup per load, stirring soap before each use (will gel).
  • You can add drops of what ever aroma smell you like.
We like it or clothes are clean . I all so buy concentrated Fabric softener and diluted it 1 to 2 with water. keep sponges in the bucket and use for dryer sheets to use over and over.
It sure is a money saver. I
