Save Money with These 14 Homemade Laundry Detergent, Static, and Stain Cleaners

When I bought my High Efficiency (HE) washing machine I had a heck of a time finding a HE laundry detergent that didn’t make me itch, cleaned our clothes, AND didn’t make the washer stink. At the time I couldn’t find a HE laundry detergent that accomplished all three important tasks and ended up making my own powdered laundry detergent. Problem solved.  I had leftover detergent from the old washing machine that let me tell you,it  is NOT a great idea to use in a HE washing machine! However, that liquid laundry detergent is great for pretreating laundry stains so it didn’t go to waste.  Slowly but surely I started making other laundry cleaning supplies like laundry stain spray, static cling fighter, wrinkle releaser, dryer sheets and wool wash save time (it takes me less than 15 minutes to make this stuff) and money. It also cuts down on our household waste too. High fives all around!  Pin this list of ideas to your Pinterest boards for later! Share it with your friends Laundry S

Russian Black Bread Recipe

I love dark bread especially during the winter.

I can find rye bread at the grocery store.  Russian Black bread? Not so much.

When I do, Russian Black Bread is too expensive to use as everyday sandwich bread. 

With the help of my trusty bread maker, I learned to make Russian Black Bread for pennies instead of buying it for several dollars.

That looks delicious. I've been looking for a good, coarse, hearty dark bread. I'll have to expand the recipe to four loaves. Looks great!
Cranberry Morning - It is a good hearty dark bread. I LOVE using it for grilled cheddar cheese sandwiches.
