The tough economy has forced me to learn how to live on a budget and save where I can. One way I have learned to, is to make my own laundry soap. I did a little online research for a recipe and gave it a try. I LOVE it! It smells fresh, is easy to make and is cheap (as in pennies a load)!
Laundry Soap Recipe
1 bar Fels-Naptha soap, shredded (just like cheese!)
2 cups Borax
2 cups Washing Soda
Mix all together and store in an air tight container. Use only about a tablespoon per load. It will not get all soapy/bubbly but your clothes will be clean. Each batch lasts our family about a month or a little longer. I do at least one full load a day. I found all the needed items in the laundry soap aisle of my grocery store.
My girls were on board and helped me make it! Of course I have to share pictures! :-)
