Little Laundry Room Things" post, I received quite a few questions....
regarding that shiny topped candy canister, and the contents!
It is actually not my detergent, as most may think and be dying to believe. However, if you recall from my cleaning post, I can't get enough of the new pump bottle detergent that Method has so smartly created...
And that gets conveniently stored in that pretty white lace basket on the shelf right above the washer....
So what is the mystery white powder? Well, don't call the DEA team quite yet, it's innocent I tell ya!!
It's actually Borax. And yeppers, that candy canister can hold an entire box, along with a handy scoop!
For those really tough laundry tasks, I give my detergent and washer an extra hand by adding a scoop of Borax to the mix. And I also have it on hand as a great earth friendly alternative to making my own cleaning products.
So, for those wondering if the canister is really worth it for detergent? Well, I think it would be if you purchase a smaller sized box of it, and wanted to display it in a pretty and convenient way. And for you big detergent box buyers, there are other cute canister options for you as well!
Like this darling jar, which can be conveniently found at either Walmart or Target, and comes in sizes big and small!
So there you have it. I really do heart a glass or clear method to storing most everything that I need to replenish around the house. It always gives me a super quick visual of my inventory when coming up with shopping lists. And often times is a cute accessory to boot!
