Inexpensive, fun and easy to make, it lasts a long time and costs only pennies per load.
An added bonus is you know what is in it.
Soap Borax, Washing Soda. That is it.
Hang on a minute I am still getting my head around the savings you will make ( I am the thrift queen just ask my hubby about the “Great Wall Of Toilet Paper” ) an estimated cost is $6.00 for 576 loads.
Now compare that too an average washing powder ( I did the calculations on my washing powder ) $392 for 576 loads and that is in Aussie dollars
With the money you save on washing powder you can buy more important things like CHOCOLATE or someone to actually DO the washing for you, now that’s an idea. Who is with me on this one. I would love to hear some feedback from people who try this recipe, I know I will be making some once I get through the stockpile of washing powder I bought on sale thinking I was making a saving.
You may have been told you need to use “special soap” for your HE front-load washing machine. Let me enlighten you as to why. HE front-load washers require “special soap” for one reason and one reason alone…low suds; because they use less water, they require soap that is less sudsy. The good news is, the homemade detergent in this recipe is VERY low suds. Just make sure you use the recommended amount of detergent.
The HE designation is just another advertising mechanism the industry is using to try & swindle consumers into buying “special soap” that they charge unnecessarily exorbitant prices for.
