Make your own laundry detergent with these ingredients

“It’s really easy to do and it saves a lot of money, and quite frankly, I think my clothes are softer with it. But let’s remember the bottom line here: You can wash a load of clothes for pennies. Seriously. Pennies.

Here are our three main ingredients. There’s Borax, washing soda and a bar of laundry soap. All of these can be found in the grocery store. Now, about soap. You can use old-fashioned Ivory soap. Or, try Zote or Fels-Naptha. I have Dr. Bronner’s bar soap because I got a bunch on sale. And they come in different scents which is nice.”


Borax – 1 cup
Washing Soda – 1 cup
1 bar of laundry soap

The soap bar will need to be grated, but other than that it’s an easy recipe to make! Apparently, doing some math, you can save over twice as much money then using the leading detergent brand.
