I’ve been reading many blogs where they’ve tried making their own laundry detergent.
I’ll be honest.
I’m not very domesticated. I LOVE to save money, but prefer to buy my stuff premade.
Sounds kinda silly, doesn’t it? I mean, everyone knows that 99% of the time it’s cheaper to make stuff yourself than buy premade.
But for some reason I’ve been reluctant to try making my own laundry detergent, dish detergent, etc.
I finally bit the bullet and am giving it a try.
(not my picture…I borrowed from here)
Today I purchased the ingredients. (everything was purchased at Wal-mart in the laundry aisle)
1-4lb. box of Borax ($3.38)
55 oz. box Super Wash Soda ($3.24)
1-4 lb. box Baking Soda ($2.08)
4 bars of Fel Naptha soap (.97 each)
3 lbs. Oxyclean (I bought Sun Oxygen cleaner) $2.73
1 bottle Downey Unstoppables (NOT required…I just like the smell) $4.97 (used $2.00 coupon)
Grate Fels Naptha soap with cheese grater. Mix everything together in a large air tight storage container.
The best part….you use only 2 TBLSP. per load! Total cost of the above product was $20.28 and will do approx. 320 loads of laundry….which makes each load of laundry only 6 cents! Can NOT beat that! Give it a try.
