I didn’t really mind doing laundry when it was just my husband and I. But add kids into the equation and it SUCKS. Nothing makes me want to breathe fire at my kids more than seeing clean clothes just tossed in the laundry pile because they were too lazy to put it away.

Plus our laundry room is all the way in our basement so it isn’t super convenient. I know, I know #firstworldproblems. I am grateful that I have a washer and dryer, I promise.

There are a few things I have done to make laundry a bit less of a chore. Here are some cute glass etched mason jars I made to store my detergents and stain remover.

Supplies needed:

Armour-Etch

Gallon Mason Jar

Vintage blue glass jar – I got mine from Jo-Ann Fabrics and Craft Stores

Silhouette Cameo machine

Foam brush

Vinyl with transfer tape

Foam brush pouncer

1. Cut out the words “laundry detergent” and “stain remover” onto some vinyl. I used my Silhouette Cameo machine to cut it out.

2. Peel away excess vinyl.

3. Use transfer tape to adhere your stickers to the front of your one gallon ball jar.  Burnish out all bubbles in the vinyl near the letters.

Tip: There will be some bubbles in the vinyl since you are covering a curved surface.  Just make sure it isn’t near your letters.

4. With a foam brush, apply Armour Etch to the letters, make sure you have covered the letters with a thick coat left to right, and up and down.

5. After 25 minutes rinse off Armour-Etch and remove vinyl.

6.  To make the “stain remover” jar repeat steps 1-5 on the blue glass vintage jar. The cool thing about this process with the blue jar is that it will just remove the blue from the jar leaving the clear glass showing.

It is wicked hard photographing glass by the way. I must have spent 2 hours trying to take pictures in different locations.
