DIY Laundry Detergent - Cheaper and Better!

DIY Laundry Detergent.. a little goes a long way. For as much laundry as we do at our house.. I'm trying it! (safe for HE front-loaders, too! Read the comments for notes) :)

Homemade Laundry Soap Even HE safe and Fabric Softner-- For 64 loads of laundry soap it costs 0.92 to make that's 0.014 a load. For 202 loads of fabric softener it cost 1.26 to make that is $.006 per load! A grand total of 2 cents per load of laundry! Oh and under a hour to make both, I can handle that! :)

How To Make Your Own No-Grate Liquid Laundry Detergent

I boiled 2 c water and dissolved the dry ingredients with the Dawn (in a large glass measuring cup apparently I learned from earlier experience today). When cooled slightly, I poured it into my plastic bottle and added 2 c tap water and shook it. If you used 1/2 c for the original recipe, this would only require 1/8 c and would take up 75% less space on my shelf.

Orange peels, vinegar in a quart jar, let sit for 10 days or so...strain out the liquid and use as an all-purpose cleaner. Easy, cheap, natural, smells good! I must try this.
