Who knew laundry detergent was so easy to make? S.O.‘s Homemade Cheap Laundry Soap (follow this link to Modern Cottage for the recipe!)
It’s super easy. Just a bit of grating of Fels Naptha soap (my cheese grater just happens to be super clean now!), mixing of the other ingredients (all of which I found in the laundry aisle of our grocery store), and “voila!” Laundry detergent! (Check out the link above for more tips and info about making your own cleaners.)
This is a super cheap (only about 5.7c per load), and also environmentally friendly alternative to the stuff you buy in the store (most laundry soap is pretty yucky stuff for our world).
I’m actually having a bit of a hard time not feeling smug about the whole thing.
Update: This experiment has been a wild success! Check out my recent post about safe cleaning for more information.
