Save money by making your own Laundry Detergant
This recipe costs about a penny per washing load in a regular machine and about a half a penny per load for a HE Machine.
2 cups Fels Naptha or Ivory Soap Finely Grated (if you do this in your blender I would suggest covering the lid of your blender with a damp rag so you don’t inhale the dust that escapes)
1 cup Washing Soda (not Baking Soda/also called Soda Ash/I buy mine at Kroger)
1 cup Borax
Mix well and store in an airtight plastic container.
Use 2 tablespoons per full load in a regular machine. 1/2 to 1 tablespoon for HE machines.
