I have been meaning for quite some time to try my hand at making my own laundry soap. I have heard of quite a few ladies trying it and they can’t say enough good things about it. While the kids were playing at Nana’s house a few weeks ago I tried it out. There are quite a few recipes out there and this is the one I ended up trying
I only had enough borax to make 1/2 of the recipe, but it was really easy ~
I love anything citrus smelling so I found essential oil at Chamberlain’s for $3.89 including tax ~
Even with only 1/2 of the recipe it made over 2 1/2 gallons. Thankfully I had a super large container that my friend Stephanie gave me.
This detergent is easy to make, ridiculously inexpensive, and cleans just as well as my regular detergent. I was pretty careful with how much essential oil I added to the mix so I might add more next time. You can purchase the washing soda at Publix for between 2-3 dollars. The borax you can also get from Publix but Super Walmart had it for $2.89. I think it was a little over 3 dollars at Publix. I had saved some other laundry detergent containers which I put some of this in there and just shake it every time I use it. If you want to try it save you containers and I will make you some! 🙂
