homemade laundry soap!

i finally made it! i put it all together & it is made and stored 🙂

i found an excellent recipe online (here) & now we have enough laundry soap to last for probably over a year! 🙂 & it only cost $24.64 (plus tax!). plus, i got two free containers to store some of it in :)! the recipe is below! you can either get the stuff on amazon, or i else found EVERYTHING in the laundry aisle at walmart 🙂

 

YOU WILL NEED:

1 (4 lb 12 oz) box of borax
1 (3 lb 7 oz) box of arm&hammer washing soda
1 (3 lb) container of oxiclean (this is one of the free containers i was talking about! 😉 )
3 bars of fels-naptha soap (you can also use ivory or zote soap)
1 (4 lb) box of arm&hammer baking soda
1 (55 oz) bottle of purex fabric softener crystals (this is another one of the free containers! also, you don’t have to use purex. you can also use downy unstoppables or that bounce fireworks stuff. whichever scent you prefer, because that’s what the soap will smell like!)

will let you all know how it works with the clothes once i do a load (probably tomorrow!)
