She's Crafty...

Oh how i wish I could have the Beastie Boys playing in the background while this post is being read, alas...the idea will have to suffice.

Baby Brewing and rainy weather are a dangerous combination. What started with wanting a natural ~ i.e. drug-free and midwife attended birth ~ has lead down a slippery slope of hippie-dom. We slowly progressed to organic eggs and rBGH-free milk, since i was consuming so much of the two it just made sense. Then we decided we wanted to cloth diaper, as we practice 'leave no trace' when we camp...shouldn't we do so in our lives as well? And on and on - up to today - I mixed up my first batch of homemade laundry soap. Why??? Well it too just made sense. Why purchase that special 'baby soap' when we can make our own completely natural product.

Laundry Soap
2c borax
2c washing soda (a little hard to find - we bought at a pool supply store)
2/3 bar grated castile soap
Mix it all in a glass jar and use 1-2TBSP per load

Of course - peter had to take a pic for posterity’s sake.
