looks good, i have a question though, would borax substitute work? because i haven't been able to find any real borax in ages, just the substitute (which won't make slime, however hard you try)

also, i LOVE powder-type laundry soap, research shows that it actually gets your clothes/fabric cleaner and more hygenic (even at lower temps) than liquid stuff

I'm not sure if a substitute would work...I've only used borax.  You might try looking for it again because I know Wal-Mart wasn't carrying it, but has recently started restocking it because of the higher demand.  Also several grocery stores I've gone to carry both borax and washing soda now.  Hope you're able to find it Smiley

I hope I'm posting this in the right section...

I've been making my own laundry soap for about a year and a half.  At first I was making liquid soap just because I've always used liquid store bought soap.  But now I make powdered soap and it is much quicker to make!  Here's a picture of what it looks like and the video tutorial in the link below Smiley  Let me know what you think.

23  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / New Coasters for My New Home! (With Tutorial Link) on: October 01, 2010 04:47:30 PM
My husband and I just moved into our first apartment and the first thing I've made for our new place is coasters!  I know that may sound a little lame, but it was fun Smiley  Also I'm trying out using a lace curtain for my new backdrop...what do you think?  (I know the photo is off-centered, it's because it's also the title segment in my video with text).

I also made a video tutorial for how to make the coasters... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_K7Kgt6N7BI

24  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Reconstructed Reusable Tote Bag on: September 01, 2010 01:24:02 PM
Simply interesting, love the big whale, and the lace. Just by looking at the photo, gives me an idea to use my passion all the more to make use of recyclable materials around and come up with interesting products others will appreciate. What I am thinking now is a home project that will make use of magazine pages which I gathered for years and make it into something like handmade purses and small magazines clutch I saw online.


Thanks for showing me that link!  I actually have one of those bags; I found it at a thrift store for $3 a little over a year ago.  It's really cool, but I don't think I would ever have the patience to make one myself.

I had a reusable tote bag from Wal-Mart that I didn't like carrying because it was boring.  I used some vintage sheet scraps to make my tote completely personalized!  This is my first crafster post so I hope the picture works.  Just in case...here's a link to a video I made that shows the bag along with a tutorial.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tbk0urWpr_8
