Lets get enviro freindly...and save money

I've been listening to Stitch It!! Podcast for a while. This is a wonderful podcast with great stories about her family, spinning, and knitting. In a recent episode she described making your own laundry detergent, dryer balls, and using vinegar as a fabric softener. So tonight I made 2 sets of dryer balls, one for light clothes and one for colors. I'll update you on how they work. I also want to get the stuff to make the laundry detergent and try that out too.

Vinegar is also as effective as bleach at killing germs/mildew but non-toxic. It also whitens/brightens! I always throw a cup in with my wash instead of bleach for this reason.

Cool, good to know. I have been using vinegar to clean and mop my floors for a long time but didn't think of using on my laundry.
