I have recently become addicted to pinterest. It is a wonderful virtual corkboard where I have found lots of wonderful craft ideas. My mother tried for 18 years to open up my crafty side and I resisted, a whole 30 years. Well now I am all about it.
One day while looking around pinterest I found a do-it-yourself laundry
detergent. After a few days of thinking about it I decided to do it. I
have a couple people in my family with VERY sensitive skin and laundry
detergent is expensive. So I decided to do it, even though some members
of my family thought it was a bit odd.
The ingredients can all be found at you local Walmart in the laundry aisle. All together it was about $8 for all the ingredients, but the Borax and the Baking and Washing Soda would make way more batches. I am estimating that this the Borax, Baking and Washing soda containers I bought will last me a year. That is a huge savings over a $15 bottle of tide, plus it doesn't have all those additives!
1 bar Fels-Naptha bar soap
1 cup Borax
1 cup Washing Soda
1/4 cup Baking Soda
I have made a few other projects I have gotten from pinterest. But more on that later.
