Editor's note: For our last week at Style Lush, I've asked the writers to share both a favorite post by another writer, from over the last three years, and a favorite post of their own. You'll see these posts linked to at the top of their new post for the week. Enjoy a stroll down Lush memory lane!
As much as I wish Style Lush were not closing down, it is, so I'd like to share my favorite posts with you. First, one of mine. The first post that came to mind was the one I wrote about making your own laundry detergent. It was fun because so many people tried it and it generated so much fun discussion. (Did you try it? Let us know in the comments!)
And my favorite post by another Style Lush writer is this one, by Emily. I immediately went out and bought the turkey hair clip Emily picked out and then began buying all sorts of ribbon sculpture hair clips. Right before I went broke, a friend of mine complimented Elizabeth's hair clip and offhandedly mentioned that she wondered if she could learn to make her own. I said "let's DO IT." And hairbow club was born. I now have four friends that come over to my house occasionally and we make our own hair clips. We take turns bringing lunch and we hang out and it's become our therapy. So this post from Style Lush changed my life for the better. (Thanks, Jennie and Emily!)
Anyway, now on to the new content.
Now, I have an update for you on the laundry detergent post. Since then, I’ve tried sending my detergent for a whirl through the blender after I mix it. It’s not a necessary step, but it does totally smooth out the detergent and make it into a uniform consistency. If you’ve had a problem with your water not being hot enough to melt your soap bits, I am guessing that this will solve that problem since it reduces your detergent to a much finer powder.
So, let’s a have a survey. How many people tried making their own detergent after the first post? And are you going to try this new technique?
