Making your own Handsoap and Laundry Soap

Emma1

Here is a link that shows you the easiest way to make your own body soap. It's a little scary at first but I've made hundreds of bars of soap over the last year and it's really easy.

SOAP SAVER
To cut down on the amount of liquid soap your little ones pump out when washing their hands, wrap a rubber band around the neck of the dispenser. Now the pump will only go down about half way, only dispensing about half the amount of soap, which is still plenty. --

When your dishwasher is finished washing and ready for the drying cycle, turn it off and open the door a little. This cuts down on the energy used to heat the unit and your dishes will air dry just as well and in less time than you might think.

A SPENDING FAST
Whenever we want to save extra money for whatever reason, we have what I call "no spending months." A no-spend month is when money is spent only on essentials. If I want to buy something I have to ask myself, "Is it essential to our living this month?" Usually the answer is no and I don't buy it.
