One of the wonders of the world because it NEVER ends!
I have tried every laundry soap under the sun. Both with and without chemicals. My and the baby's skin is very sensitive. We have to be careful what we use. I personally HATE petroleum based soaps. They make the clothes feel greasy, in my opinion.
So what is a witch momma to do? Make my own of course. Now the recipe I found was online, I just tweaked it a little bit.
All it takes is:
1 cup Borax
1 cup Arm & Hammer washing soda
1 5 ounce (shredded) bar of soap. I used Dr. Bronner's lavender scented bar soap
Mix all ingredients together and store in an air tight container. Use 1 tablespoon per load. 2 tablespoons if the load is really dirty.
Price wise it works out to 5 cents per load vs. 21 cents for Tide. I use this soap and absoluty LOVE it!!! It smells great, works phenomenally!
Happy stain removal!!
(That is a 5 pound container and only a double recipe of laundry soap...just for reference.)
