The other day I was talking to a friend of mine who is also a fellow Beachbody Coach and she was telling me that she was thinking make her own laundry detergent, So I thought it was a great idea and got on google to figure out what all I needed to buy to make my own Laundry Detergent! There are actually many many ways to make your own laundry detergent so If anyone wants to share how they make there own, Id love to hear about it!! Here is how I made mine!
1.Fels-Naptha *about one bar shredded , cost about 95 cents
2.Washing soda *two cups , 3 pound box cost about $3.50
3.Borax *two cups, 4 pound box cost about $3.30
All 3 of these ingredients I easily found in the laundry isle at my local Walmart!
I took a liter of water and brought it to a boil and then turned it down to low and added the shredded Fels-naptha bar and stirred it until all the soap had dissolved completely, then I poured the soapy mixture into a large bucket and then stirred in the washing soda and the borax until completely dissolved, then I added two gallons of water and stirred.
This made about two and a half gallons of laundry detergent! The break down of the cost for one batch came to just $2.65. You will only need about a 1/4 of a cup of this detergent as it is very thick and concentrated! I do believe you will be able to wast about 160 loads with one batch! I have done one load of laundry and my clothing smell and feel great! I am going to be making my own laundry detergent from now on because not only will it save me tons of money, it was also VERY easy to make!
Made My Own Laundry Detergent and LOVE it!!
