Several years ago, when our financial situation changed drastically, I learned how to make my own laundry soap for a fraction of cost of commercial soaps. Unfortunately, I really do not like grating the bar of soap that goes in the recipe. My youngest doesn’t mind and jumps at the chance to help me out, but he’s not always here anymore, and the task falls to me once more. I still hate it.
In walks brilliant 4-H leader Lisa with a genius solution: food processor. I don’t pull my food processor out for much. If cleaning the food processor is going to take longer than the job I need it to do, I don’t bother. However, Lisa let me in on a little secret. She grates about a year’s worth of bars, measure the shaving out into plastic bags and stores them until she need to make more soap. Brilliant! How in the world did I miss such a poetically simple solution?! See, it pays to surround yourself with geniuses!
Anyway, today I put Lisa’s great idea to work and filled 10 zipper-seal plastic bags with just the right amount of shredded soap, and the food processor cleaned up very easily.
Thanks, Lisa!! You rock!!
Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
