I was working today. So I had a full day but I still have several household things I needed to do. So far I have finished:
I made three batches of the laundry detergent. This time around, I ran two blocks of soap through the shredder in the food processor. It's soap. It'll wash and be extra clean.
I used Fel Naphta blocks this time. One block gave me roughly three cups of soap flakes. I had two blocks. So that gave me 6 cups, which equaled to three batches.
I still have more than a quarter box left of borax and washing soda powder. I probably will get another 3 more batches from my supply. I have made a total of six batches so far and they last quite a while. I haven't had to buy bottled detergent since October. I had one mixed batch left before I made more today.
Giving out cookies to neighbors
My daughter and I made spicy oatmeal raisin cookies last night. I packed up the cookies in tins and bags. I enlisted the husband to distribute them to our neighbors.
Sew more diapers
I made one with PUL today and another with fleece. I am getting better at it. The stitches are tidier and it took me 30 minutes to cut and sew one diaper today. If I can do this regularly and consistently, maybe I could try to sell these for cheap. That'd help other mothers out there because cloth diapers are expensive to buy. Now the question is, where do I find the time?
The one with white PUL is the one with blue dinasour print flannel. I layered the PUL with the flannel to give it a cute look. Sewing the PUL isn't as bad as the reviews I found online. It did have the tendency to slide all over, but I found if I keep a firm grip, it worked just fine.
Using alova suede for inner diaper. It is so soft and wicks away the moisture from the baby's bottom.
This one has two layers of fleece, and one layer of alova suede.
Both of them have side closures. We seldom use the front closure diapers we have anymore. My husband loves the side closure. He said it is a lot easier to put the snap on.
