How To Make Laundry Soap


Homemaking

I’ve been making our laundry soap for years. YEARRRSSSSS. I remember once my son saw laundry soap at the store and didn’t know what it was, and it blew his mind that people buy it. He’s been helping make it pretty much his entire life. I finally needed a new batch and wanted to show […]

Chatter
