Homemade Laundry Detergent and Swine Flu...

That reminds me, I need to pick up the wheelbarrow.
Today is Sunday and it is my day of rest. Last night I worked at the casino. After having dealt a hand, the gentleman next to me said, "I am feeling much better. I had H1N1 last week and almost died." He reassured me he was not contagious, even though his skin was three shades more pale than normal and coughed religiously until he left an hour later. Here I sit, congested and coughing curious if it is, in fact, Swine Flu that takes me out. Please don't let me die from something named after a pig. Oh well, onward, forward.

Yesterday I was reminded of the many cost saving techniques we engage in at my house and wanted to share one. We make our own laundry detergent. Click the photo below to see how:

As you can see it's natural, cheaper and lasts much longer than the blurry Tide in the background. If you can get over the extra work of purchasing three items instead of one and grating a small portion of the bar located on the bottom right (15 minutes) you are on your way to a living more conscious and richer existence. Enjoy your Sunday!
