Homemade Laundry detergent
Here's what you need-1 bar of soap. I used Dove Hypoallergenic (andrew's allergic to detergent)
1-5 gallon bucket with a lid
1 3/4 cup washing soda (i found this at Kroger)
Put 4 cups of water on the stove and bring almost to a boil. As the water is warming whittle your soap into the hot water.
Add 3 gallons of hot water to the bucket. On the last gallon pour in your 4 cups of soapy water so you should have a total of 3 gallons. Add 1 3/4 cup of washing soda and 1/2 cup borax to your water soap mixture. Stir for about 5 minutes.
Put the lid on and let sit over night.
The next morning you have a nice slimy laundry detergent! Can you believe it...that easy. I haven't added the cost yet but I spend approx. $7 a week on laundry detergent and This 3 gallons of detergent cost 5.26 for all the supplies so I need to do some math and figure out how many loads I will get!
