two recipes.

two recipes to share. i've been meaning to post the first for awhile, but was reminded of my grandiose failure to do so yet again this week when someone else asked me for it. here is the recipe i use to make my own cloth diaper laundry detergent.

i've been using this detergent for 4 months now, and i really like it. it was less than $30 to make, and it makes a very large amount. i'll probably be able to use this batch for as long as i have children in cloth diapers. seriously. i poured some into a little container so i wouldn't have to lift the big tub i have the batch stored in, and i've not yet had to refill the littler container. i have an HE washer, so i use 1/2 Tbsp. per load (i do a cold wash and then a hot wash, so i use 1 Tbsp. total each time i wash, or approx. 2-3 times per week).

so anyway, there's the recipe i used. the only hassle was finding a way to mix all the ingredients since you have a pretty large amount you're trying to combine.

.... annnnnnnnnnnddddd, recipe number 2.
i can't take credit for this because john made it for dinner last night, but it was EXCELLENT! definitely a great way to satisfy that brat craving when grilling weather still seems so far away...
