Join the Easier book club!

I’m thrilled that one of Easier’s most amazing listeners, Anna, suggested that we start a book club! I’ve always wanted to be a member of one, but never have found the time for an in-person meeting. Now we’ve got one of our very own ?

To join the club, head over to the Making Life & Work Easier Facebook group. We’ll pick a book each month to read and discuss.

For July 2019, we’re starting with Gretchen Rubin’s Better than Before! I’ve always wanted to read this book, but for some reason, I pass it up each time I’m shopping for one. I finally have an excuse to give it a shot!

Can’t wait to read with you ?

White vinegar is the best fabric softener. Seriously.

I discovered a while back that you can substitute expensive, chemical-y fabric softener for plain ol’ white vinegar.

Honestly, I’m not even sure where I found this. I know it was somewhere online, and I was pretty skeptical when I first read it. But. Then I tried it, and discovered that it works.

Seriously, it works.

All you have to do is:

  1. Use it, 1:1, for your current fabric softener
  2. If your machine has a dispenser, use that! Otherwise, get a Downy Ball.

Here are some reasons I love it. It’s…

  • Way cheaper
  • Natural (not full of chemicals)
  • Effective! It removes smells from your clothes and washing machine.

Plus, it never leaves a vinegar smell. So, no need to be worried about that!
