I never imagined myself scouring the internet or rustling through books to find recipes on ways to save money by making things myself. Honestly. But now that I’ve started, I’m addicted. Most of these household cleaning supplies are just a simple mixture of two or three other household ingredients. My first serious attempt was laundry soap. Never again will we be buying detergent from the store.
Simple and you can’t beat 640 loads for a mere $5.
Make sure to shake it before each use. It’s not gelatinous so when you go to pour it, be careful. I use a little scoop to measure out how much to put on the clothing or an old dropper from my kids’ medicine. The mixture is grainy; I wonder if I should use warm water next time so the baking soda dissolves.
They recommend soaking the items individually instead of putting it into the load.
Fabulous, isn’t it?
