You can find these recipes all over the internet, but I’ve been making my own detergent for a few years now and this is the easiest way for me…
1 box Borax
1 box Super Washing Soda
1 box Baking Soda
1 large container Oxi Clean
3 bars Fels-Naptha
Grate Fels-Naptha into slivers. Mix all ingredients together in a large bucket. Store in air tight containers. Use 1 TBSP per load of laundry. It smells good, but you can add a scent booster if you want it to smell even better.
This amount lasts six months for my family of three. It only costs $21.12 to make it this way (that’s $3.52 a month!). I buy all of my ingredients from Wal-Mart down the laundry detergent isle.
$3.24 Super Washing Soda
$2.12 Baking Soda
$9.47 Oxi Clean
$2.91 Fels-Naptha (3 bars @ .97 cents each)
