First the good news,
no abnormalities were found in my liver, lungs or bones.
What a relief
getting better and cured is a possibility again.
No granny square today.
I just don`t seem to get more squares done.
No time, tired, my arm hurts, bleh.
Hopefully next week.
Although I have my first chemo next Thursday,
Now on the subject
how to make your own natural liquid (laundry) soap.
With soda you can use it to do your laundry and
as an all-purpose cleaner.
Without soda as hand soap
and we are also using it as shower gel.
It is not ideal as a shower gel because it doesn`t foam much
but if you don`t mind that
this is a good, cheap and natural option.
I use Savon de Marseille
which is a natural gentle soap.
Savon de Marseille is traditionally green or white. The white soap is made with palm oil, the green with at least 50% olive oil. Both varieties are exquisite, ultra-moisturizing skin care. Marseille Soap is recommended by dermatologists throughout the world for dry skin and other ailments. Its incredible purity and moisturizing properties make it ideal for sensitive skins. In France it has been trusted for generations to cleanse everything from linens to little faces.
I use the scented bars for the liquid soap
and the grains for the laundry soap.
80 grams (2.80 ounces) grated
5 liter boiled water (still hot)
100 gram (3.50 ounces) baking soda (for the laundry soap)
On the stove, dissolve the grated soap in 1 ltr. boiling water.
Add the soda (optional).
Add the remaining 4 ltr. hot boiled water.
Let it cool for 24 hours.
Store it in a container with a lid
and/or clean old laundry soap bottles.
With this laundry soap you have to use a laundry ball
which you put between the clothes.
I use 60 ml per load.
Easy peasy and cheap!
