A friend I work with gave me the recipe to make my own laundry soap! How cool is that! I made some the other night and it was so easy. The recipe is below…some of the ingredients may seem difficult to find, but when I went to the store most of them were all right next to each other. For the bar of soap you may have to go to a smaller hardware store. (I got mine at Ace Hardware.)
If you are counting pennies, here is how this breaks down in price. Borax=$2.56, Arm & Hammer=$2.12, Bleach (I used Biz)=$6.68, Fels Naptha Soap=$1.29. Not bad. I have a ton leftover after making one batch! The only thing I will need to get more of is the bar of soap. With using 2-3 Tbsp a load I’m thinking this is the way to go. Plus it is such a romantic thing to do and it smells good!
