Laudry Detergent


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I save money by making my laudry detergent. I use one bar of Fels Naptha soap, 1/2 cup of Washing Soda, and 1/2 cup of Borax. Grate the soap and combine with the washing soda and borax. It works great and so much cheaper than purchasing ready made from the store. :)

    MAZACK~I find a box of Arm and Hammer Washing Soda usually near the bleaches/OxyClean products. Not easy to find, but most stores carry them.

    I have friends looking in to making the detergent. Their problem is finding washing soda locally. They found information online.
