It’s good to be back! Wow, I didn’t know how having a second child would take away all your time. It also made me re-analyze my Homemade Laundry Detergent. When my second child, Isaac, was a couple weeks old he developed some really dry skin on his elbows and it turned into really rough patches. I chalked it up to eczema, and slapped on the lotion. Then I heard about the not-so-natural ingredients of Borax and Fels-Naptha. OH NO!
So I decided to do an experiment. But first I needed a safer alternative laundry detergent. So I just took away the Borax and found a different option for Fels-Naptha,... Castile Soap. After only a week of dropping the old detergent, I had clean clothes and NO MORE ECZEMA! Wow!
