I can cross one item off my list.
I made my own laundry detergent!!
It was so easy! I wish I had done it sooner.
Here's the recipe:
1 bar of Ivory, shaved (you can also use ZOTE or Fels-Naptha)
1 cup borax
1 cup of washing soda
Mix well for approximately 5 minutes. And that's it!
I got my recipe here. I tripled the recipe because I had 3 bars of ivory. I will be saving about 16 cents a load and only 1 Tbsp is required for each load. Love that!!
