I heard on a blog (I can't remember which one) about making your own laundry soap. So I began my search for a good recipe. I came across quite a few, but they were all for liquid soap and I have never been a liquid soap kind of girl. I always end up making a mess with liquid soap and never get the right amount. Anyways, I finally found a recipe for powdered laundry detergent and I have been using it for almost a year now. I love it!
It really is pretty easy to make and very inexpensive. I make a couple batches every time so I really don't have to make it that often. Here is where I found the recipe.
Powdered Laundry Detergent - Top load machine - Duggar Recipes - The Duggar Family
I keep the detergent in a mason jar and I keep a tablespoon with it so that I never have to worry about putting too much soap in the load. This soap does not leave a perfumed scent on your clothes, which is alright with me. I would rather smell like my perfume/lotion than laundry detergent, but that is just my opinion!
Thanks for stopping by!
