Just a few laundry odds and ends to start out your Monday…
- Do you make your own laundry detergent? What about your own laundry booster? I found an interesting post at Apartment Therapy on how to make your own scented laundry booster!
According to the post, you can make it in large quantities and can use any fresh herbs you have on hand: lavender, basil, etc.
Maybe I’ve been living under a rock, but I was not aware there was a washer/dryer all-in-one on the market. Ariston Appliances claims that this machine can wash up to 15 pounds of laundry and then immediately dry it. Now that’s something to think about! For people who have extremely limited space, this could be a great option. Of course prices are not listed on their website, so I have no idea if this is even a financial option for most people or if it is a reliable machine. Regardless, it’s an interesting concept!
- If you live in North Carolina and need a washing machine, keep in mind that the NC Tax Free Weekend for Energy-Star appliances is coming up: November 5-7, 2010. Remember that only washing machines qualify as Energy-Star compliant – not dryers. It’s just impossible with our current technology to figure out how to efficiently heat air, so dryers do not qualify.
- It seems Mrs. Meyer’s is now available at Wal-Mart! Their pricing in the store is very similar to the prices noted on their website.Also, Mrs. Meyer’s now has their laundry detergent available in the scent of Basil. I haven’t tried it yet, but I would assume it’s as clean and fresh as their other scents.
