    Pinners have said this is the best laundry detergent EVER and you only need a tablespoon per load (just use the oxy scoop) and it smells so good! This may inspire you to make more homemade cleaning products??? :) Laundry soap recipe - $20 for 9+ months' worth of soap. Gotta try this! 1, 4 lb 12 oz box Borax (2.15 kg or 76 oz) found in the detergent isle 4 lb box Arm & Hammer Baking Soda (1.81 kg) found in the cooking isle 1 box Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda 55 oz (3 lb 7 oz) found in the detergent isle 3 bars of Fels-Naptha soap, found in the detergent isle (if you use Zote bars use 2 bars instead, Zote can be found at Home Depot) 2 small containers of Oxy Clean or store brand Oxy Clean (try to get about 3.5 lbs total (1.58 kg)) found in the detergent isle. (this is optional, I added it into mine because I have pretty messy kids and the cleaner the better) You should be able to find all of these items at your grocery store. **Use 1-2 Tablespoons per load. I know that does not seem like enough but this recipe does not have fillers like the store bought detergent so you only need 1-2 Tablespoons.** This detergent is fairly mild smelling, it is not over powering. If you love a strong scent you may have to add a fabric softener or laundry crystals to each load. You can find laundry crystals in the detergent isle.

    How do u make this in a smaller amount to try it out?

  • Becky Simpkins

    As soon as our current supply or store bought detergent starts to diminish, this is what I'm gonna try. Need to try to remember to use my coupons to by the ingredients ahead of time!

  • Amanda Wissing

    I made this and I love it! Lasts a long time. I just make sure to use fabric softener because the detergent alone doesn't leave the clothes with any type of scent.

  • Kathy Boyer

    I love this mix. Been using it over a month now and barely made a dent in the amount left. You can mix in scented laundry crystals. I found a few different scents at Walmart
