My new favorite website (that I check daily) is Pinterest. There are tons of great craft/DIY/home decor ideas, among other things. One of the things I “pinned” is DIY laundry detergent. To give credit where credit is due, I found the “recipe” here . It does seem like more money up front (and it is). But since this mix is way stronger than the store bought stuff, it lasts a lot longer. According to the blogger who gave me the idea, one tablespoon per load will last about 9 months! I just made my batch a few mins ago. We’ll see how well it works
No, that’s not cheese…it’s the Fels-Naptha soap…grated like cheese!
The ingredients: Borax, baking soda, super washing soda, fels-naptha soap and oxyclean. Mix it all together in a large trash bag and then store in a pretty jar!
FYI…we found all of the ingredients at Walmart! The glass jar we’re storing the detergent in is from World Market (I plan on decorating it somehow…eventually).
