Here I am at the library again…checking in. Still no modem in my mailbox.
I just wanted to let you know that this Saturday I WILL have my booth set up at the Farmers Market in Danville, Va. with lots of soap and some lotions, and new this week, will be Powdered Laundry Soap made from our own goats milk soap!
I’ve been making liquid laundry soap for a few years, but don’t like carting it around the country, and it doesn’t always ship well either..still, people were asking me about it, so I did some research and found that I could make powdered laundry soap with the same FOUR ingredients, (that’s it, just four ingredients) as my liquid soap, minus the water.
This laundry soap contains Shantara’s Soaps, natural goats milk soap, in various (very light) scents, washing powder, borax, and baking soda.
We’ve been testing it on our really dirty farm laundry and it works great! It only takes a heaping tablespoon for normal loads and two heaping tablespoons for really dirty loads. It’s even got the “buck in rut” smell out of my clothes, and believe me, that’s a challenge for ANY soap.
For best results using our laundry soap follow these simple instructions:
fill washer with water
add measured detergent
add clothes and begin cycle, if washing white clothes, try adding a cup of peroxide instead of bleach to help keep those whites white and reduce your exposure to chlorine bleach.
For even better results, add a 1/2 cup to 1 full cup of vinegar at the beginning of the rinse cycle. This will help soften and freshen your clothes further and help take the place of those horrible chemical dryer sheets.
For really fresh clothes, hang laundry outdoors in the sun. Enjoy fresh, clean, nearly chemical-free clothes!
Free samples of our laundry soap will be available at the market Sat. We’ll also have some packaged up for sale.
See you then!
