DIY Laundry Detergent

Just another unfortunate expense we have. Not only to our wallets but to our environment & health. Not going to preach the negative effects of store bought laundry detergent BUT I will give a quick and simple “how to” on making your own.

You need 3 cheap & simple ingredients.

Soap, borax & laundry booster.

Everything you can usually buy at your local store.

I made 3 batches in under 15 minutes.

Step 1: Grate the bar of soap on a cheese grater.

Step 2: Mix 1 cup of borax, 1 cup of laundry booster and the grated soap in some sort of storage container & mix.

Step 3: Use appx 2 tbsp per load of laundry & that’s it!

The hardest part its grating the soap, gotta use a little arm muscle 😉

I used all 3 bars of soap, 3 cups of each borax & laundry booster and both boxes have about half left if not more for another batch!

Total coast?

$1.24 – 3 pack ivory soap

$4.47 – box borax

$3.96 – box laundry booster

A grand total of $9.67 for 4x the amount of detergent a regular $10 bottle can do! Plus – its natural & better for the environment!

Happy Earth Day 🌎
