Thrift Store Find


1 (Morgan Jones) double bed sheet and 2 pillow cases - $3.69 total.  1 cotton blanket - $1.00


The blanket will be used for the kidding time with the goats (used towels are smaller and cost more at thrift stores here), and the sheet and pillow cases will be used on beds here.  They will also be used for my summer, backyard wall tent and for camping.

I've been making my own detergent for awhile now and had noticed that my hand towels were getting pretty dark in the middle so I bought and used oxi bleach...I think it's peroxide based, to see if that would help on my pastels. If they don't start coming clean I'm going to have to do something else. I'm putting "clean" clothes on and they're not looking very clean! Any ideas? I use the washing soda, baking soda, and Borax recipe.
Great buy at the thrift store! I snagged a set of L L Bean flannel sheets once at a garage sale for $3.00 and every time I use them I smile! Love a great deal/steal!
I hope your doggy feel better soon...poor thing especially when they're always so brave and uncomplaining.

Back about 7 years ago, I used to make my own "oxi clean" but haven't since I moved. I'll see if I can find the recipe and try some on our white towels. I think it was peroxide, washing or baking soda and maybe one other ingredient. I'll see if I can find it.
