My friend Erin gave me this recipe for home made laundry detergent.
1 box borax
1 box Arm and Hammer Washing soda (not baking soda)
3 bars fels naptha (bar of washing soap)
Using cheese grater, grate 3 bars of fels naptha, mix together with the borax, and arm&hammer washing soap. Store in an airtight container.
Its just that easy!
Erin suggest using only 1 Tblsp of the powdered mix per load. I did 2 loads of laundry this morning just to try it, it works great! I did use a little more then 1 Tblsp but I am washing extra large loads of laundry. I bought all the ingredients at Walmart. They were in the Laundry soap area all right next to each other on the shelf. It cost me around $8.00. I am curious to see how long it last. I will let you know!
Do you have any home-made cleaning products you have tried and care to share? Did it turn out how you thought it would or was it a flop?
