So, I've been looking for ways to be frugal and make every dollar stretch. I had read online about making my own laundry detergent and finally gave it a try. Here's the "recipe":
1 Bar of Fels Naptha soap, grated
1 Cup Borax
1 Cup Washing Soda
Mix and keep in an airtight container. Add 1 Tablespoon (a formula scoop works great!) to each regular load of laundry. Use 2 Tbs. for tougher loads. So far it seems to be working great...and I can be kind of a "laundry soap" snob.
I've been using Borax and Washing soda for lots of things around here...with much success! So, how do you pinch pennies?
