So, when she sent me this recipe for homemade laundry detergent to save a few bucks, I decided to hitch up my apron and give it a shot.
I am going to break down the recipe as follows: (all prices are from Amazon.com, because I'm not let out of the house to go shopping.)
1 - 3 lb. container OxyClean - $9.39
3 bars - 16.5 oz (total) Fels-Naptha bars - $11.97 total
1 - 4 lb. box Borax - $11.59
1 - 3 lb. 7 oz. box Arm & Hammer Washing Soda - $8.76
1 - 4 lb. box Arm & Hammer Baking Soda - $8.39
1 - 13.2 oz Downy Unstoppables scent booster - $9.29
Total spent - $59.39. Crazy, right?!?! Who in their right minds spends 60 bucks on laundry soap?
Total weight - 16 lbs. 2.7 oz
Suggested usage - 1 tablespoon, which equals 1/32 of a pound.
Total loads by weight - 517.4
I'm never going to have to buy laundry soap EVER AGAIN!by the way, you can follow my boards on Pinterest here.
