Friday Project

Ok I borrowed the pic and recipe from this site check it out...http://www.victoriahillfarm.com/2008/11/homemade-laundry-detergent.html

Here's what you need:

A bucket 1 box of 20 Mule Team Borax  1 box of washing soda  5 bars of soap


Directions:


Grate the bars of soap. If you are using Ivory or another soap that is very soft, you will want to let the grated soap sit out and harden for a couple of days. Dump the soap, borax and washing soda into a bucket. NOTE: Pour and mix this outside as it can cause a dust in the air (similar to pouring cat litter).

Mix it up however necessary. Use a long, wooden spoon and/or put the lid on the bucket and shake it really well.

USE:

Use one tablespoon of detergent for regular loads, two for large or heavily soiled loads. Do not go overboard. A little of this goes a long way - that's what makes it economical. This homemade detergent is natural, so it can be used on baby clothes.
Now once I am done I will show you all the power of TIDE vs the Awesomeness of HOMEMADE and we will see who is the winner....and if the winner is Homemade guess what I got bottle of tide brand spanking new if you want it!

I'm still using the batch I made early last summer. From what I've got left it will last me a full year. My recipe didn't use a full box of either of the powders and just half of a bar of Fels Naptha soap though. I wonder how long it will last using the whole box? I never actually calculated, but the whole batch was around $3 for a YEAR'S worth of laundry soap!
