What will the RESULTS be when I give this a whirl?!
I pinned a recipe for homemade laundry soap over a year ago and never went back to it and somehow the thought popped back in my head.
I searched “Homemade laundry soap” on pinterest and 100s of results popped up.
I started reading and pinning.
Yes it’s safe for HE. It doesn’t bubble that much, so it’s perfectly safe.
FEAR NOT, bubbles are not what get your clothes clean anyways.
I’m cool with the borax ($2.00)so unpin the non borax “recipes”.
Search. Search. Search.
Fels naptha vs Zote.
Okay whichever I find first.
Oooh, wait? People make it with Mrs. Meyers? NICE!
Dr. Brooners, too? Who’s he?
I didn’t NOT find Fels naptha or Zote at my target so the decision was made.
I wanted Mrs. Meyers and could have SWORN they had bar soap at Target but only the liquid stuff.
I did find Dr. Brooner’s in Lavendar. Heaven. ($2.50)
Also, no washing soda at Target, but I got a glass canister and measuring spoon for $10, these items are the only non perishables I bought.
I checked Wal-Mart the next day and they had it ($2.00). They also had the Fels Naptha and I didn’t like the scent that I could detect from the wrapper.
I also decided to grab some OxyClean. My boys get dirty. ($3)
Okay. So now for my Recipe. I went “small”, as a test run.
Lavandar Laundry Soap:
1 Cup Borax ( less than $1)
1 Cup Washing Soda (less than $1)
1 Cup OxyClean (Aprox. $1.50)
1 Bar of Dr. Bronner’s
( about $2.50 depending on scent/store)
Total: $6 and it appears to be ABOUT 2 months worth of detergent, assuming I do 5-7 loads a week and ONLY use the 1 tablespoon STRONGLY recommended by everyone.
I still have more than have a box or borax and washing soda and part of the oxyclean, but I went with a small container.
