So, this is a totally random topic, but we have moved from liquid detergents in our dishwasher and washing machine to good old fashioned powders.
I actually never did use liquid or pods in my dishwasher because, for what might have been the first time ever, I read the directions *gasp* and they said powder is much preferred to get dishes cleaner and keep the appliance in top working order. And it’s cheaper to boot. It didn’t occur to me that the same might be true for my washing machine until I posted a pic about cleaning it on Instagram
and the comments started rolling in. So, once I used up my existing stash of liquid detergent, I traded out the dispensers for jars of powder and dryer sheets. Truth be told, those dispensers ended up being the pits. They were drippy and made it very hard to get all of the detergent and softener out.
So far I’m much happier with this situation. The jars are from Target and I’m using a teacup with a hairline crack for the scoop. I used the scoop that came with the powder to measure it out the first time, and marked the inside of the teacup with a sharpie to use going forward. Pretty and functional.
In case you’re wondering (I’m sure you’re not), I blitz laundry day. I save it up all week and then do five to six loads every Monday. Of course, I’m terrible at folding and putting it away so most Monday nights I go up to crawl into bed and am greeted by this awful sight…
We made over the laundry room last year. Look here for the before & after pics and all of the sources!
Happy Friday, y’all!!!!
