I'm testing a laundry soap powder I put together yesterday and I'm rather excited about it! Yes, I can get excited about doing the laundry....guess I'm kind of funny that way. :)
I was inspired by all the recipes I checked out on the internet, and this is what I came up with.......
1 bar Fels-Naptha laundry bar soap, grated
1 cup Arm & Hammer Washing Soda (not the same as baking soda)
1 cup 20 Mule Team Borax
1 cup Arm & Hammer Baking Soda
1 cup Oxy Clean
All of the ingredients I found were at Walmart and are cheaper there than the grocery store, but if you don't have a Walmart nearby, you can still find everything at most grocery stores. You just might pay a bit more for them.
Once I grated the Fels-Naptha (which has a nice citrus-like scent), I put it and all the other ingredients together in a plastic container, mixed well with a spoon and that was it. It's ready to go!
I'll sit down later and compare the cost per usage to the name-brand laundry soap I've been using and I'll also let you know how this particular recipe worked on our clothes, but will save that for a later post.
I would really like to hear from those of you who make your own laundry soap as well, because I'd love to hear how it's worked for you and, if you have any advice you'd like to pass on, please feel free to share it!
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you're all having a great weekend!
