Make Your Own Dishwasher Detergent Vinyl Project
Ok, typically, I am not the "make it yourself" kinda gal at all. But, I had been fond of using these little Cascade pillow-type dishwasher detergent tablets and frankly, they can get pricey quick (23 loads for $6). So, when I saw this vinyl project on Being Creative (to keep my sanity) that combined crafting with making dishwasher detergent, I wanted to give it a try.
I followed the recipe on Being Creative (to keep my sanity) but used just a third of the recipe since it makes so much and can harden over time if not air-tight. I bought the same kind of container she did at Walmart but I think mine is smaller.
I couldn't wait to try it out and was so pleased with my results! Just as good as the pillow-tablets I had been using and at a fraction of the cost.
A word on the text - I used the Cricut Don Juan cartridge and cut the base letters at 1-1/4" using blue Cricut vinyl. It was a teeny bit too big (eyeballed the length - whoops!) but I thought it was close enough. Now, there's no excuse that my kids can't tell how to use this - LOL!
This is a scrap-lifted project I just had to pass along - send her some comments if you give this a try!
