Powdered Laundry Detergent & Mosquito Trapper

Powder Laundry Detergent

You will need:

1 4 lb 12 oz box Borax found in the detergent isle

1 4 lb box Arm & Hammer Baking Soda found in the detergent isle & cooking isle

1 box Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda 55 oz (3 lb 7 oz) found in the detergent isle

3 bars of soap ex. Ivory or Dove or a laundry soap like Fels-Naptha or Zote soap, found in the detergent isle

2 small containers of Oxy Clean or store brand Oxy Clean 3.5lb containers
1 bottle of your favorite scent of Downy Unstoppable for that extra smell good

**Or you can grate up ½ bar of your favorite scented all natural bar soap

Add all ingredients in a trash can or 5 gallon bucket lined with a trash bag, remove the bag & mix everything really good. Place the bag back in the trash bag or bucker & add your scooper then close the lid. Use the oxyclean scoop; you need at least one scoop per load of Laundry, 2 if you have dirty work clothes or hard water.

**This will cost you about $17 to make & will last about 312 loads averaging $.05 a load.

Mosquito Trapper

You Will Need:

1 Empty 2 liter bottle

1 Packet of Yeast

½ cup of Sugar

½ cup of luke warm water

*Cut the top (just before the start of the cone) off a 2 liter bottle. Invert the cone and place it inside the straight part of the bottle. Glue the two pieces together, using a glue or silicon.

* Add 1 tsp yeast and 1/2 cup sugar to some luke warm water, and pour the mixture into the bottle.

**Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide that you exhale. The yeast feeds off the sugar and emits the same gas, so the mosquito enters the bottle, thinking they will find food there.
