My Homemade Laundry Detergent Dispenser's Death.

So, I've been making my own laundry detergent using this recipe for about a year and a half now. While a cheapo plastic drink dispenser has served me well for all this time, it sadly bit the dust today as I went to put a load in the washer. 

See the crack? 
I know it seems small, but it definitely made its presence known. 

I realized there was soap leaking all over my hands and could not for the life of me figure out where it was coming from until I felt the crack. 
And then saw the liquid seeping out. 
And then I realized I had to say goodbye to my trusty plastic detergent dispenser. 
And then I realized I had to (quickly) find something else to put all that soap in.

So what did I do?
I got...creative

That would be (from left to right) an ALDI-brand orange-pineapple-banana juice bottle, an Arnold Palmer jug, and another ALDI-brand cranberry apple juice bottle. 



  1. Hahaha. As I read this, the thoughts that went through my head were:

    "Oh NOOO - not the dispenser!"
    "People are going to think she drinks a LOT of juice..."
    "Well done, Wife. Well done."

    1. It's just a good thing I hadn't taken the recyclables out yet...and that we hadn't yet thrown out that empty Arnold Palmer jug that we've had sitting on top of the fridge since the summer!
