25 Days of Homemaking Hints: Homemade Laundry Stain Remover

Homemaker's Digest 3

 

It’s day 10 of our 25 Days of Homemaking Hints series! I have to be honest with you guys – I’m a little unsure of how folks feel on these posts. Honestly I get more traffic on these posts each day than just about any other item I post throughout the day, however I’ve been hearing a few comments from folks sharing that they feel like it’s a little “1950’s-ish.”

 

I’m not gonna lie. The whole notion of homemaking does conjure up a 1950’s housewife even for me. But,  I really do believe there is value in homemaking even in 2015 (doing this series inspired me to get dinner in the slow cooker on time today . . . ), and I think it really is something that matters ~ at least for me.

 

‘Nuf said.
