Even though we have on site laundry we have found it cheaper to go to the laundry mat.
Instead of doing laundry a little each day we go once a week and still only spend about two hours from start to finish. We're finding the boys are able to help us too.
Man of the woods instinctively knows that we should separate the clothes. It just makes sense to do it that way. This brings a smile to my face, "That's my son." There is a process to everything.
And if you want to save some money, I've got a super easy laundry detergent recipe for you:
~1 cup Borax
~1 cup baking soda
~2 cups grated bar soap (any of your choice. I use an oatmeal based one. Honestly it was the cheapest I could find)
~add essential lavender oil to your noses desire.
~Mix together and there you have it laundry detergent.
In the words of my Strong man "It's easy peasy" (He's going to love me for sharing that one!)
Moreover, that every man eats and drinks and sees good in his labor--it is the gift of God.
~ Ecclesiastes 3:13
