Make Your Own Laundry Detergent & Save $300 a Year!

For the last year, we’ve been making our own laundry detergent.  It sounds nuts, but it is so easy and works like a dream.  We calculated that our laundry detergent for one year cost $6.55.  We’ve washed over 550 loads for that money.  It only takes a little time and the results are just as good as the $15 detergents!

Here’s what you need:

  • 2-3 Gallon Jugs (heavier plastic than milk cartons works best — but in a pinch a milk carton will do).
  • Borax detergent
  • Washing Soda (look for Arm and Hammer in the laundry aisle)
  • Bar Soap (we got a six-pack of dye-free and allergy-free soap for about $1).

In large pot that holds over 2 gallons, grate the bar of soap into pot. Pour 1 gallon of warm water over the soap. Stir over heat till the soap melts.

Add Borax and washing soda. Increase heat and bring to a boil.

Turn off the heat and add 1 gallon cold water. Stir well.

Cool slightly then pour into jars using a funnel. Let cool for 24 hours before use.

It may gel slightly. That is normal. Just shake it before use.
