So a few weeks ago I ran across some homemade laundry detergent post. So I thought of course I can do this.
I use a form of the same recipe found at this great DIY website.
You will need:
A cheese grater
1 bar of Fels-naptha
1 box of Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda
1 box of Borax
Word of advice: This can get a little messy.
You will also need a large bowl.
You simply pour the washing soda and the borax in the bowl.
Then the part that takes a little longer is grating the soap bar.
It actually looks like cheese when you are doing it.
Then you mix it all together.
And there you go! Homemade Laundry detergent.
I stored mine in a water jug and a sauce jar.
This all breaks down to about. 04 a load. And you use 1-2 tbsp for each load.
I did a load last night with it and I was impressed with the detergent. I am keeping up with how many loads I actually end up doing so I really can compare the money spent to the loads done.
The fels-naptha bar was .97
The borax was 3.97
The washing soda was 3.97
This is a super simple DIY. My 3-year-Old helped grate and stir. In total it took about 20 minutes.
Make sure you have something to pour the finished product into the container. I didn’t so I improvised.
And it actually worked!
Hope you enjoy this as much as I did making it.
Until next time
