I have been experimenting with homemade detergents for a while now and I have finally mixed and matched enough to find one that I love.
I do like the liquid homemade detergents but they tend to separate and you have to mix them or shake them before adding to the laundry. Since I always made them in HUGE batches, it was hard to do. So I got to looking at powder recipes and found a few that I liked, mixed them up, and made one that I love.
Here is my favorite recipe and all time favorite scent!
Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda
Purex Crystal Softener
First you need to...
make a fantastic smoothie, turn on your favorite show, kick back...
and get to grating your bar soaps. This can be very therapeutic. :)
I take an extra step and pop it into the food proccessor.
This makes it a little more fine.
I actually do this recipe X4...
I dont have to make laundry detergent very often because it makes this much:
I love using the Purex Crystal bottle to store my detergent.
It has its own little cup and pours out very easy.
I use 1 Tb. per load.
There are TONS of different recipes to try out there, this is just my favorite.
Dont know what to do with all the Borax you have left?
