I saw this on pinterest and it made me curious. I had seen several friends posting other DIY laundry detergent/soap recipes over the past few weeks, but they seemed messy and WAY more hassel than they were worth. (I am an award-winning under achiever, I'll have you know). So when I saw this recipe with only 3 ingredients and DRY ingredients, mind you, I was intrigued.
I bought my 3 ingredients:
I found all items at my local Kroger in the laundry aisle. The washing soda was $2.99, the borax was $3.99 and the fels-naptha was $1.19 a bar. All you have to do is.....
1. Finely grate the entire bar of Fel-Naptha soap
2. Add 1 cup of Borax
3. Add 1 cup of Super Washing Soda
4. Stick all in the food processor to mix well. (I tried just stirring in a bowl, but it didn't want to mix well).
I stored the mix in an airtight container. I used an old scooper from my protein shake mix (approx. 3 TBSP) as the scoop for the detergent. I tested it out with my stinky towels. I have a HUGE he washing machine, so I added 2 scoops of the mix. They came out completely scent-free and SUPER soft!
I was SO impressed with this! With the boxes, I will be able to make a total of 5 batches. Now I just need to see if Sam's or Costco carries any of this in bulk! ;)
