      DIY Laundry Detergent- what I (Shana) find attractive about this particular recipe is that it uses whole boxes of ingredients, which is a time saver for measuring, etc. I'd skip the fabric softener addition but again mixing up a HUGE portion sounds so appealing. I <3 homemade laundry soap.

      DIY Laundry Detergent - My second attempt at DIY laundry detergent and couldn't be happier with this one. I included the two optional items (oxy clean and purex fabric softener crystals). Even though they are the most expensive thing in the recipe (around 9 bucks per item) it was still a huge money saver.

    Save LOADS of money by making your own fabric softener!

    My grandma taught me this many years ago. Refreshing towels I use this trick all the time since I noticed my towels smelling funky. It works! - Over time, towels build up detergent and fabric softener, leaving them unable to absorb as much water and smelly. Recharge them by washing them once with hot water and 1cup vinegar, then a 2nd time with hot water and half cup baking soda. This strips the residue and leaves them fresh and able to absorb more water again. Works like a charm!

    Most of us spend about $30 a month on just three basic cleaning items -- laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent and a scrubbing cleanser. But you could make all three for less than $4!

    How to get your dirty whites clean again... HOT HOT HOT water, 1 cap of laundry detergent, 1 cup powdered dish washer detergent, 1 cup bleach, 1/2 cup borax. you have to rewash it once to put softener in but it's the whitest you'll ever see your whites. If you omit the bleach it works great to get stains out of colors too (baby spit up is no longer a stain on OLD clothes)
