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

My Lunch is Boring, Can You Help?

I work from home. Most of my lunches are either leftovers or sandwiches. It saves serious cashola on the lunch front and it is healthier than fast food.

When we don’t have leftovers on hand, I take the easy way out and make a sandwich for lunch.

With my new lactose free diet, lunch is getting boring.

Especially sandwiches, I can’t put cheese on my sandwiches every day like I used to. I got a nasty surprise in more ways than one (ahem) when I found lactose listed in the ingredients of my turkey lunchmeat yesterday. Aw, man! I have to give that up too?!


I know I could buy premade dairy free cheese and such. In fact, out of curiosity I bought a box of dairy free macaroni and cheese. However, since I try to cook from scratch as much as possible, I don’t want to start relying on a lot of processed dairy free food.

I guess I’m going to have to do some sort of once a week or once a month cooking of dairy free lunch options, so I can have a quick and easy lunch during the week.

The problem is I’m stuck for lunch ideas. Can you help?

What are your favorite dairy free lunch ideas?
