In an effort to cut out unnecessary chemicals from my life (and cut down my grocery bill,) I scoured the internet for a homemade laundry detergent. I was very, very skeptical. It seemed way too easy. So, with just enough liquid Purex for one more load, I headed off to the store to see if I could locate the ingredients and move forward with my experiment. I purchased the following – all of which I found at Wal-Mart – and all which cost me less than 10.00. I believe this will provide me enough detergent for almost a year:
1 Box of Borax
1 Box of Washing Soda
3 Bars of Kirk’s Castile Soap
Now, I didn’t need to use all of each item for my first batch.
