As you know, we are trying to cut costs out of our budget. My husband is actually the one that came up with the idea of us making our own laundry detergent. He made the trip to the store and bought the ingredients and we are loving how easy it is, not to mention how cheap!
You need the following ingredients:
– 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.
