Homemade laundry detergent? I haven’t made any in about 8 months now. I haven’t needed to! Thanks to the combination of coupons and a sale, I had stockpiled. But, with a large family, it can’t be helped; it was all used up.
So, I made more homemade laundry detergent. I actually had forgotten how quick and easy it is to make. And, oh yes, it cleans clothes wonderfully. The problem now is, everyone is accustomed to filling the bottle top, used to measure the liquid detergent, half-full. But, with the homemade laundry detergent it really only takes 2 tablespoons of the powder! So, I used a marker to mark a fill line on the scoop. It makes it easier on the children, and me!
You can see the yellow shreds of bar soap. I used Dial for this recipe but have also used Safeguard – whatever soap I have gotten a “deal” on, is what I use. I really think any soap would work. It is a great inexpensive way to get scent-free detergent; just use scent-free soap.
