Dear Gain,

I know its been a while since you and I teamed up to fight the forces of dirty laundry but you see, lately I've been on this frugal kick. With the downturn of the economy, I've been trying to save a little money here and there. One way I thought I could save a little money was to make my own laundry detergent. The laundry detergent I made has no scent. I can understand how this suprises you because I'm all about smell! Anyway, I've been using the homemade detergent since November and I've come to realize that it pales in comparison to you. I've missed your fresh clean smell. Not to mention, my sweet hubby spends quite a lot of time in the mornings lint rolling his clothes because that homemade stuff leaves some kind of weird residue behind.

But, oh happy day, our favorite store, Publix, recently put you on their list of essentials at $4.99 a bottle AND I had a $1.00 off coupon to purchase you. Now you happily reside back on my laundry room shelf where you belong and I'm back to sneaking sniffs of my shirt at work! Can you ever forgive me for my extended absence?

Love,
Angel

LOL...just like every other aspect of life, you gotta pick your battles, and I'm right there with you on the laundry detergent. It's just not the same for me, either. :D

Cute post. Can you tell me where you got your homemade detergent recipe? I've been thinking about trying one, but if it's the same one you used...well, I won't, lol. Of course now I can't remember where I found a recipe...

Cute post! I told my husband I was thinking of making my own detergent and he thought I was off my rocker. For the time being, we stick with the store bought stuff.
