Back in October, I posted about making homemade liquid laundry detergent. Well, for a small family, I've found that this recipe can go kind of sour after a year of having it. I guess you could just make a smaller batch but I've grown to like a dry powder version.
I use the same recipe sans liquid:
1 Fels Naptha soap bar, grated
1 cup washing soda (NOT baking soda)
½ cup Borax
Then, I use 1 tablespoon per load. That's roughly 32 loads for maybe $2. not bad, huh?!
