Frugal Living: Make Your Own Laundry Detergent
A few months ago, I ran into a couple at Whole Foods who told me all about making your own laundry detergent. I had almost forgotten about it until I ran into them again this past weekend at the Claremore Ladies Extravaganza.
Basically, it costs about one penny per load of laundry. Those are savings are worth giving this concept an extra look!
The recipe is simple:
Homemade Laundry Soap
1/3 bar Fels Naptha soap or one whole bar of Ivory or homemade soap
1/2 cup Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda
1/2 cup borax powder
2+ gallon bucket, for storing
I have not tried it myself but I wanted to pass it along for those who would like to. Tammy’s Blog has a wonderful tutorial with pictures to help you along.
If you try it, let us know!
