Laundry Detergent Recipe


I have misplaced my recipe for making laundry detergent. Can someone out there send theirs? I really enjoyed using the homemade detergent; it was frugal and did a great cleaning job.

Thanks,

Laundry Detergent Recipe

I just made my 3rd batch of homemade laundry soap. We are saving a lot of money! The initial purchase of borax, washing soda, & Fels-Naptha was minimal. Each recipe takes only 1/2 cup of borax & washing soda & 1/3rd bar of Fels-Naptha. My last 2 batchs always settled & became goopy. This batch I cooked very well to make sure all was disolved, then added 2 T. glycerin. This morning the mixture did not separated & was not goopy!

With 3 teen-age kids, a husband, 4 dogs & a horse, there are dirty towels, jeans, etc. CONSTANTLY! A batch lasts me approximatly 1 month.

Perhaps a person could find the "sale" soap, but I wonder how much energy was used to make that product? Where is the plastic container going after the detergent is used? How much energy is being used to recycle these plastic containers? We can't say we do everything "green", but this is one of our contributions to our future environment. (06/22/2007)
