8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Camo Couch Cushion Covers on: August 08, 2013 10:35:18 AM
I bought about 50 panels of camo fabric from a guy for 6$ each. they measure 45 wide by 60 long.

This took a panel per large cushion and I got 2 small cushions out of one panel on the others.

It's a little messy looking from being sat on, but I am happy with  the outcome. I still have another couch and loveseat I need to complete. It was fairly easy and I am pleased. Smiley

9  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: DIY laundry "tabs" - quick, cheap, easy, MCS friendly! *pic light* ;D on: August 05, 2013 11:14:21 AM
I bet a panty hose sock or just the foot end of a pair of pantyhose would do the trick and it would be cheap and easy to find. I understand the concept of not putting the whole chunk in the wash, if it doesn't dissolve it will be nasty in the wash and could stick to one item.  The mesh bag works as a barrier and contains the leftover bits as well.

I recently got a huge lot of bars of soap at Gabriel Brothers, 6 bars for 1.49. I ended up buying about $60 worth because the soap is hypoallergenic, not too strong a fragrance and it grates very well and breaks down to a very fine powder and is excellent for the dry laundry soap!

It grates very easy and I grated 24 bars of it into a 3 gallon bucket, took my hands and squished it all into a very fine powder and then added my borax, washing soda and oxyclean.

I made a 3 gallon bucket full and I put some (about a quart or so) into an old tin I had and use a small scooper, about the size you use for coffee. I do use 3 scoops because I wash big loads and want to make sure they're clean.

It dissolves very well, I will not go back to using the liquid soap because it's a bit of a pain when I run out and have to make a new batch in a rush and the bucket is heavy and hurts my back when I have to lug it around and pour from the 5 gallon to the smaller container.

I love how fresh the dry powder smells and that it does a great job at cleansing. Smiley

I was a die hard liquid laundry soaper, I have now converted to the dry method and I love it. There really is a lot more freedom and less bulk!
