Unless you’re padding around the house naked (and make a daily practice of doing so) you probably need to do a load of laundry. Today’s Friday Frugal Challenge: Save money on laundry.
Here are some options:
*Wash your clothes in cold water this week. Using hot water costs more—plus the colors in your clothes won’t run with cold water.
*Make your own laundry detergent. Check out the tutorial at Houselogic.
*Ditch the dryer. For this week, hang your clothes up to dry rather than using the dryer.
What options work for you? We’ll be washing in cold water and I may experiment with homemade laundry detergent if I’m feeling ambitious. How about you?
Friday Frugal Challenge Update: Last week’s challenge was to either resell something you own or to buy something gently used. We sold two used books and made $7.83 with minimal effort. Did you buy or sell something?
