I got the recipe from Being Creative. The first batch that I made did not have the washing soda because Bi-Mart didn't stock it then. I also couldn't find Fels-Naptha soap so I used Ivory. This time, I was able to get the soda and Fels-Naptha!
Here's what it cost me for the ingredients:
- Borax - $3.79
- Washing Soda - $3.99
- Fels-Naptha - $2.97
- Sun Oxi-clean - $4.98
- Baking Soda - $4.36
- sales tax - $1.73
I bought the jars at Bi-Mart last year. I decorated the two jars using stickers as stencils and used paint pens to apply the black. I then removed the stickers to leave the clear areas.
The laundry room smells really good right now 'cause I just finished mixing it all up and putting it in the jars. I shouldn't need to buy or make detergent for over a year!
Here's my lovely detergent:
