You can save so much money by making your own laundry detergent. You will be amazed at how much money that you can save when you make it yourself. You will also be avoiding harsh chemicals and brighteners that are in store bought detergent. One of my favorite things about using homemade laundry soap is that I always have everything on hand. There are no more last minute trips to the store because we ran out of soap!
There are so many recipes that you may want to try:
Here is another recipe that uses Castile soap. Homemade Laundry Soap Borax free with essential oils from Mom 4 Real.
I have always used this Liquid Laundry Soap Recipe from the Duggar Family. It makes a 5 gallon bucket, when you add water to it to dilute it it actually makes a total of 10 gallons! That is ALOT of soap and it lasts forever!
Here are the ingredients if you don’t want to go out and search for them locally:
Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda, 55 oz, 2 pk
Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar Soap – Pack of 4
20 Mule Team Borax Natural Laundry Booster, 65 oz
If you love making your own laundry soap maybe you will want to try your hand at making other DIY laundry items. You will never have to shop for laundry supplies again!
