Homemade laundry detergent is all the rage these days but do you ever wonder if it really works? I love the idea of homemade laundry detergent, that costs a fraction of the price but I
want to know that my clothes are actually getting clean, before I jump on the bandwagon!
The 4 basic ingredients of homemade laundry detergent are Borax, Arm & Hammer Washing Soda, Arm & Hammer Baking Soda and Fels-Naptha bar soap. I also added Oxi Clean and doTERRA Wild Orange essential oil, to give it a little extra cleaning power, and a delicious citrus scent. Check out my full post to see how/why each of the ingredients work to create the best, most effective laundry detergent. Click here: http://askannamoseley.com/2013/05/the-best-h...
Edit: This detergent can be used in a front loading washing machine, there are instructions if you click on the link above. It is also safe to use if you have a septic system, I researched all of the individual ingredients and they are all safe to use. My sister has been using this for years on her septic system and she has never had any problems.
Known as "Edgewood," this home on the National Register of Historic Places was built on a Revolutionary War battlefield in 1845. Combining Gothic Revival architecture with Quaker
influences - and with a tower addition built in 1889 - "Edgewood" stands out in a region dominated by Colonial architecture. Over the past century, while passing hands from homeowner to homeowner, the condition of the home gradually deteriorated.
Pine Street Carpenters renovated nearly every square foot of this home. Every detail in the home was designed to unite the historic character of the home with the homeowners' own tastes and lifestyle.
A new design was created for the main living areas of this home to better suit the family's lifestyle. This was achieved by adding an attached three-car garage and converting the esiting
garage into a family room and sun room.
This garage conversion allowed for an open floor plan and first floor remodel that successfully matched the family's lifestyle and remodeling goals. These goals included: a larger family room; an open floor plan connecting the main living areas; better flow and functionality for both daily living and entertaining; better storage and organizational opportunities; and defined study and reading areas that were still connected to the heart of the main living areas.
To this end, this whole house remodel created an open flow for the main living spaces, including a new kitchen, wet bar, dining room, family room, sun room, and study. Connecting these remodeled living spaces to the new garage is a new mud room and laundry area.
Also integral to this remodel was to make the garage addition seamless to the existing home, making it look from both the exterior and interior as if an addition had never been made at all.
