A few weeks ago I picked up this little ceramic canister at a Habitat For Humanity Restore.
After I got it home I realized that it didn't seal well enough to store food.
No worries, though, it can hold laundry soap!
I was able to use some hand-me-down stickers my mother-in-law gave me.
I used letter stickers to label the front and laundry stickers on the back. I used a permanent marker to make the clothes line and clothespins. The marker won't rub off but it will come off if you use a Mr. Clean Magic Sponge (I had to erase a boo-boo I made).
I filled the container with my homemade laundry soap. This batch turned out a bit too chunky because I experimented with Ivory soap instead of my usual Fels Naptha. It still works but I have to help the soap dissolve in the water before I add the clothes.
*note to self: don't use Ivory soap!
So for $2.00 (the cost of the canister) I have a cute addition to my laundry room.
