Laundry Detergent


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I save a ton of money by making my own laundry detergent - plus, no dyes or scents (I'm sensitive to them).

There are various "recipes" on line - the one I use calls for 1/2 cup washing soda, 1 cup soap flakes (I grate bars of Ivory on my grater), and 1/2 cup of borax.

Use 1 to 2 tablespoons per load. This works in warm or cold water
