Homemade Detergent With A Side Of Steak

by HEAB on June 28, 2010

Morning. Happy Monday my friends! Yesterday’s laundry detergent experiment was a success! Inspired by Soule Mama’s post, I purchased the following ingredients…


I found the Borax, baking soda, and Dr. Bronner’s peppermint soap at Target, and I found the washing soda at Kroger, a grocery store here in Nashville. I mixed 1 cup of each of the powders with 1 and 1/2 bars of finely grated soap.


Chris came home from a long run, and I immediately made him strip down so that I could wash his sweaty running shirt and shorts…really, I just wanted to wash his clothes. 😉

Since I only had to use 1/8 cup for an entire load, this detergent should last me a while, and I’m so excited because it worked really well.

So, after doing laundry and some more cleaning, I felt a headache starting to come on for the 2nd day in a row. It has been weeks since I’ve had any headaches, and Chris pointed out that I hadn’t really been eating as much red meat as I had been when my headaches went away. Therefore, I decided to thaw out our last grass fed finished steak and fry it up for breakfast this morning.


I fried the steak in a little ghee and some Celtic Sea salt and served it atop a bed of wilted spinach and crumbled goat cheese. So tasty, and I’m definitely going to stop by the farmer’s market this week and restock our meat supply.

OK, off to my favorite yoga class. I am in major need of some Cat/Cow action!

Enjoy your day. :)
