Frugal Living: Making Your Own Laundry Detergent Part 2
A few weeks ago, I posted about making your own laundry detergent. This frugal method brought in a lot of responses including various recipes. Over the weekend, my son and I actually made and used this detergent so I wanted to share all the details with you.
On average, Tide costs about .30 per load but this Homemade Laundry Detergent runs about .01 per load-can’t beat that!
Here’s the different recipes:
1. Liquid Homemade Laundry Detergent (this is the method I used)
2. Adjusting the recipe for HE machines (Scroll down through these FAQs, I have no experience with this, use it at your own risk.) Thanks, Heather.
3. Powder Version of Homemade Laundry Soap (Just add this to the water when you wash your clothes.)
I found all of the ingredients at Reasor’s but I’m sure you can find them at Walmart, Target, etc.
While the final texture was a bit icky to me, it worked just fine on our clothes. We do not use scents or dyes in our house so this was perfect for our sensitive skin! Overall, I was impressed. Have you tried it yet? What did you think?
