Happy New Year to everyone! Hopefully this year will be better than last year.
As a side note, I have deleted my post about homemade laundry soap, as apparently that type of soap can cause problems for some washing machines. Mine is fine, but I’d hate to be responsible for someone mangling their washing machine. The alternative (a 50/50 mix of borax and washing soda, 2 tbsp per load) is superior in its cleaning abilities anyway. So if you have been following the previous recipe, I suggest you switch like I have.
I have no idea if I’m going to be returning to posting with any regularity. If anyone really needs or wants to talk to me, I can still be reached at the email on my about page.
