Save Money By Making Your Own Laundry Detergent

I am always doing my research to see how our family can save more money.  My husband and I are both on a mission this year to cut-back our household costs. He came across this recipe and was very eager to try it out. We have been using this homemade laundry detergent for two months now and I don’t ever see us buying laundry detergent at the store again!

You need the following ingredients:

homemade laundry detergent

– 1 cup of Borax
– 1 cup of Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda
– 1/2 bar of Fels-Naptha
-1/2 bar of soap (we use Lever 2000)

You do not have to use a 1/2 bar of soap. You can use the entire bar of Fels-Naptha but I just like using the soap to give it a more fresher scent.

Pour in 1 cup of Borax and 1 cup of Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda into a bowl. Then use a grater to shred the bars of soap.

Stir ingredients really good until they are mixed well.

You are finished. It really is that easy. Use one tablespoon per laundry load. You can use two if you have a very soiled laundry. Your decision.
