You can save a lot of money by making your own laundry detergent at home rather than buying it, and more importantly, you eliminate a lot of the chemicals in commercial detergent.
In a large heavy-duty plastic container, combine:
1 cup soap flakes
1/2 cup washing soda
1/2 cup of borax.
Use 1/2 cup of mixture per a load of laundry. Use with cold and warm water washes, with a cold water rinse.
We also have a new liquid laundry detergent recipe too!
