Practice doing everything with 1/2 of the product you would normally use. For example: 1/2 the normal laundry soap ! Clothes will be just as clean and laundry soap wil last 2x as long with means you spent 1/2 as much on laundry soap !
I use this rule with: dryer sheets shampoo windex dishwasher soap dog flea stuff paper of all kinds Use your imagination and try things out and see what works just as well if you onnly use 1/2 as much !
I make my own laundry soap. It's not thick but it's helpful. This makes two gallons. Two gallons of hot water, 1 bar ivory soap, and a small box of baking soda. Grate and melt soap with a little bit of water. Mix the baking soda last thing.
I use a McDonald's Pickle pail. Of course, wash it out good.
A couple of years ago, I started making all of my laundry soap, dish soap and fabric softener. It costs pennies to make, works just as well and keeps all of that nasty packaging out of the trash. I've even made my own sugar scrub for a treat in the shower! There are lots of recipes for homemade products online - it's really worth the search ♥
