Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?

The same thing we do every night, Pinky - try to take over the world!

Now who doesnt love a good episode of Pinky and the Brain? Ive been listening to them all day and the just crack me up! Instead of taking over the world today I decided to play.Ü

First I made laundry detergent. Yup you heard me right. In my quest to be Martha Stewart I have decided to give this a try. According the blog I found I will only use 1 to 2 TBL a load. So the batch I made will last over 150 loads.With what I paid for the supplies it comes out to about 9 cents a load.

Here is the blog if you are interested.

Total time to make was less then a 1/2 an hour thanks to my grater on the kitchen aid. I gave up using the hand grater after about 1 minute. But I did have to mix all the dry ingredients and I was very picky at making sure that I got it mixed well.

I should of turned this into a science experiment for little A, but I didnt have breathing masks. With using Borax I didnt want her to help without a mask. Its a pretty fine powder. While it didnt really cloud up I just wasnt sure. Next time I will make sure she wears a mask.

After all that I decided it was time to put my big girl panties on a give Gracie a whirl.I have been so scared of turning her on for the first time after the big move. Guess what though! She was Purrrrrrrrfect.Ü


I will leave you with another of my favorite P&B quote!

Brain: Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?
Pinky: Are you pondering cheese sticks?
