So I've been working on a little something, something for a while now, but I wanted to know I had it right before I put it out there in etsy land. I loved making our laundry soap so much that I am now making it to sell in The Old White House, along with reusable dryer 'sheets' made with vintage cotton bedding with wonderful prints and filled them with lavender. My kitchen smells heavenly!
This is the full sized bag of laundry soap, scented with lavender essential oil and all natural~safe for the earth and your family~ ingredients. It is double bagged, a muslin inner bag that you cut the top to open and a reusable/refillable cotton bag with a drawstring to close it. It also smells wonderful but is not overpowering on your clothes, and let me tell you... doing laundry has never been so RELAXING!!!
These are the dryer 'sheets' they freshen your clothes with lavender and are reusable, you just store them in an airtight container (I keep mine in the dryer with the door shut cuz we do A LOT of laundry) and then give them a good crunch in your hand before you toss them in with your laundry. easy peasy! No more chemical filled dryer sheets that are clogging up our landfills, and no more chemicals on your families skin!
This is my trial size... you get enough soap to do 8 or 16 loads of laundry, depending on the type of washer you have. The HE washers will get 16 loads or if you do smaller loads well then only 1 tbsp. will work for you! Yup, that's right only 1 tbsp. per load, how crazy is that?!!!
So there you have it... I have been handing out samples all over the neighborhood and to family and to strangers to get some feedback, everyone LOVES this soap and the dryer 'sheets' are a big hit too!
Here's where you come in... I don't know if you noticed this but I have recently acquired just over 200 followers! CRAZY!!!
I never thought that I would have that many people who care about what I have to ramble on about or see the silly things I do. And then ... there you are, waiting in the wings for me to post something! Cmon let me think you are waiting in the wings o.k.? ;)

I tried to do this another way and just surprise a follower by picking a number between 1 and 202 but I couldn't figure out how on blogger to see my followers by numbers.
