It Will All Come Out in the Wash...

My Mother always says,  

"It'll all come out in the wash!"  

This is so true.  

 Isn't this picture cute! 

I love this old ringer washing machine. 

My Mother said they had one when I was a baby. 

And I complain about doing laundry!

 I love my modern washing machine, but I don't love how expensive laundry soap has gotten.


With 6 active kiddos and my sweet Farmer the laundry piles up quickly and is full of dirt, grease, and grass stains.

Commercial stain removers are great, but oh so expensive! 

I have seen recipes on Pinterest for homemade stain remover and decided to give it a try.

I substituted Super Washing Soda the original recipe called for baking soda.  (With all the dirt around here I felt it needed an extra boost.) 

1 cup hot water
1/2 cup Hydrogen peroxide
1/2 cup Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda

Let laundry soak for 20 minutes or overnight.  
You can also put it in a dark spray bottle and use a spot remover. 

The whites where noticeable whiter and it was easy and cheap to make.

So simple, I love it!!!


  1. I'll have to try this and save myself $20.00 bucks a month on laundry soap!

  2. I've got a wringer washer almost like the one in the picture. Haven't used it yet, but I'm told it works!
