My inspiration comes from many different sources such as; Pinterest*, Magazine, Store Displays, Blogs, Local newspapers and even my friends homes. Have you ever found yourself inspired by a product? That’s exactly what happened to me in Mexico.
In case you didn’t know, we drive to Mexico. After loading two adults, two kids, two dogs and a cat into our van, space is limited. Really limited. But not so much that I can’t find room for my Sunlight.
Yes, I bring a container of Sunlight laundry detergent to Mexico.
And here are a few reasons why…
1. Liquid detergents are easier on our septic system,**
2. It’s specially formulated for use with cold water***,
3. One jug lasts me the entire trip and it’s less expensive than products I can buy locally,
4. Last but not least I like to know that my clothes are clean and that they smell fresh.
So, when I was presented with the idea to update my Mexican Laundry Room I was embarrassed. How was it that the walls were bare, things were falling everywhere and I didn’t even have a laundry basket. To top it off, in a country that knows colour, my room was completely grey.
I found my inspiration in Sunlight.
I headed to the local market with the thoughts; clean, crisp, bright, fresh, and of course my favourite colour… Yellow.
I started with the walls and purchased hangings (and/or table mats) that are handmade with a loom and then embellished with hand stitched flowers. So much time and effort goes into these works of art and every time I see them, I smile.
Then I purchased a few colourful containers to help clean-up some of junk that had accumulated and of course a new laundry basket. Reuse is one of my favourite words (along with Reduce and Recycle) so I converted the container into a flower vase.
Voila! My “Drab to Fab” transformation!

** Note that we don’t even put toilet paper down our system so this is really key.
*** We only have hot water for showering. Not even in the kitchen for washing dishes.
