Encouraging Hearts and Home 01-21-2021

A 2020 Recap, Easy Egg Roll in a Bowl, An Embroidered Jumper Upcycle, and Little Jam Hand Pies are this week's featured posts!

Hello and Welcome!

Today I thought I would share a couple of my favorite homemade household cleaners and tricks of the laundry trade! We have our share of dirty clothes around here and have used this powdered laundry soap with great results. 

Homemade Powdered Laundry Soap, gets clothes clean and safe for septic systems!

Our Homemade Powdered Laundry Soap is a breeze to put together and the ingredient list can be found at any well-stocked marketplace. Plus it is safe for your septic system... 

Homemade Woolen Dryer Balls, the perfect fabric softener sheet replacement!

And our second laundry helper, Homemade Woolen Dryer Balls. These take the place of fabric softener sheets. We have been using these same balls for going on 6 years now...I have been more than pleased with the ways these work to soften our clothes and the added saving of not buying boxes of dryer sheets.

And soon there will be baby clothes and diapers to wash, we are so ready to enjoy another grandchild to love!

And now, it's time for this week's Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop!
