O.K. friends! After hearing so many of you raving about your homemade detergent, I’m taking the plunge.
I picked up some Zote soap and got the boys to work, grating.
Next, I mixed a cup each of washing soda and borax.
According to what I’ve read, I should only need 1T of detergent for each load of laundry.
Do you know how much money this will save our family??
My washer runs ALL DAY…and sometimes ALL NIGHT.
We are GAIN people. I’ll admit, I will miss the GAIN. I’m a GAIN girl. I could bury my head in a fresh load of warm laundry on a cold day.
Even still, my budget (and probably my family’s health), likes this idea much better.
I’ll let you know how it works for our family!!
One quick question….do any of you scent your soap with essential oil?
