Well there was no progress made on the master bedroom front over the weekend. But only because Andre and I got to spend an entire weekend playing tourists in our own city, while the kids had a fabulous time at their grandparents! We are all back together again and feeling refreshed and ready to hit the last half of the year running. We have a lot to pack in… we just don’t know what yet?!
So I started today by walking to kindy in the rain, and then a morning of chores, with the fire crackling and the washing machine humming.
I also finally got around to making my own washing powder!
Mum knew I wanted to make some, so she bought me all the ingredients from Wendyl Nissen’s shop a few weeks ago.
It’s so easy to make… here’s how:
- Combine 1 cup of Soda Ash and 1 cup of Baking Soda in a food processor.
- Mix 60mL of Dr Bronner’s Castille Soap and 20 drops (or 2mL) of essential oil (I used lavender) together.
- With the processor running on low speed, slowly pour the liquid mixture into the powder until it is all combined.
- Store the laundry powder in an airtight container. Use 1-2tbsp per load.
It smells amazing, and I can’t wait to try it out!
Happy Monday x
