You might think me nutty for wanting to make laundry detergent, but it was seriously easy, and quite cheap I might add.
There are tons of ways to make laundry detergent, with mostly the same "ingredients." The "recipe" I finally decided on came from one of my new favorite blogs, Yellow Brick Home.
Three simple steps go into making your own laundry detergent.
Grate a bar of Fels Naptha soap. Mind your knuckles, ladies
[Since finding out about my lactose intolerance-ness, the cheese grater has not been a very used kitchen item. In fact, it took me 10 minutes to find it.]
Add 1 cup of borax. Add another cup of Arm and Hammer SUPER washing soda.
Use a pretty jar. That's a must.
I stuck a coffee scoop in, the decaf color, because decaf does not get used around my house...ever.
That's it! Throw in a tablespoon to your laundry and you're all set.
I made two batches (using two bar of soap) and I still have tons of borax and washing soda left.
