Some of you may remember when I shared that I made my own liquid laundry detergent for the first time back in October. Well, I JUST ran out of the first batch that only cost me $.75 to make! It lasted over 3 months. Yes, I'm so serious! I really liked the liquid detergent, but I didn't enjoy having to shake / stir it every time I used it. I know... I'm lazy. So when I saw THIS recipe for powder detergent on my favorite "make your own" blog (One Good Thing by Jillee) I decided to give it a go.
The results? It was just as easy to make as the liquid detergent only I could make more of it at a time, it took up less space, and I never have to stir it. I would estimate it only cost about $25.00 to make a huge bucket full of it. You only use 2 tablespoons per load so it's going to last a really long time (I am not going to attempt to do the math on that one). Just trust me... it's a huge money saver!
I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and so far I have nothing bad to say about this recipe! It's done just as good of a job as the liquid detergent did. At this point I think I have been officially converted for good. I don't ever want to buy a 64 load detergent for $12.00 again!
