  1. I bought some of this made by a friend who went into business selling lavender-scented products. Of course, she moved, so now I want to make my own! The ingredients in her soap and this recipe are the same, so I can’t wait to try it.

  2. I like the sound of this. I am going to compare it to my regular detergent, do an experiment in the house, lol
