I have a recipe for you - but it's not the eating kind!
I made my first batch of homemade laundry detergent. It is so cheap - I just have to share it with you. Several of my friends have tried this and love it - so I'm sure it will be a good thing.
Here's what I started with... (Yep, it's all on your grocery shelf!)
1/3 bar Fels Naptha Soap - grated
3 pt. water
Mix and heat on low till dissolved...
|Love the smell of this soap!|
Add 1/2 c. Washing Soda and
1/2 c. Borax.
Put 1 qt. warm water in 2 gal. or more bucket. Add soap solution. Add enough water to make 2 gallon. Set aside 24 hours till thick. Use 1/2 c. per load.
Isn't it beautiful? It is very thick. Here is a website with more recipes and tips for making your own detergent.
