The BEST homemade laundry detergent! It's super affordable, extremely gentle on sensitive skin, HE washer safe, & I've done side by side stain tests & this version removes the stains better than store-bought. This recipe is not like the other recipes you've seen, it was developed over time with many tests until a perfect detergent came out of it!

This is MY version of Homemade Liquid Laundry Detergent. I played around with different ones on the internet for a long while until I finally just experimented with my own version, & ended up liking it SO much better than any other homemade detergent I've ever tried. Fast forward 4 years & this is STILL the only one I make, and I've even converted a ton of my friends over to it too. LESS THAN $2 FOR 5 GALLONS!
