Last week, you may remember me posting about our homemade laundry detergent that I made and happen to love immensely. Well, now I have another reason to love it, and it’s because I have improved it.
Let me give a bit of background first. The reason I started researching homemade detergent is NOT because I wanted to add another project to my arsenal. I mean, it’s really easy to just go to the store during my grocery trips and pick up another bottle of detergent. However, with four little ones and two adults in this house – one which happens to have atopic dermatitis and had to start looking for detergents that are going to get my clothes clean and fresh smelling without irritating my skin.
Dreft – costs too much.
Baby All was nearly impossible to find (although I LOVE the smell and the cleaning power)
All that was left was me making my own, and off I went to Pinterest. BTW – Pinterest has to be the most amazing spot on the internet – well, besides this here blog – because it allows you to be super crafty without having to do HALF the work that you normally would! How’s that? Pinterest helped me with the ladybugs book party – but I’m rambling, so I’ll keep it moving.
I typed in laundry detergent and all these pictures of borax and stuff popped up. After clicking around, I found out that the majority of the recipes called for three ingredients, and varied on the others.
- Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda
- Fels Naptha Laundry BAR Soap
