Home made laundry detergent.

Hey folks! I know it has been a while since my last post, but boy do i have some good information for you.

While at my knitting and crochet support group that I host, one of my students brought up that they are making their own laundry detergent. I was quite intrigued by the idea, that I started doing some searching. Here are some links i find that hosts a lot of good information if you are interested.

And the recipe I used is

The only difference between this article and mine is that i used one whole bar of  Fels-Naptha®.

Here is a picture of my completed soap :)

This is a picture of the washing soda box and Boarax box if you look for them at your grocery store.
I used a bar of  Fels-Naptha®  Which is not pictured, It can be found at Ace Hardware. I got mine off of Amazon.com


The  Fels-Naptha®  is the yellow in there, If you want it all to be white, use Ivory soap. I have heard that  Fels-Naptha® Works better though. So that is what I am using.

This is great for people that have allergies with fragrences. It cleans your clothes without the high fragrence
