It has been a busy few months. Working on the kitchen table, Emma’s birthday, and now training Emma to sleep without a paci has taken all of my time and energy. Little things, like laundry detergent, have taken a back burner.
Thankfully, I have a wonderful husband who will pick me up a jug of ALL free and clear so that I can put off making laundry detergent and focus on other things. That jug is almost empty and it was time to stop putting it it off. So, yesterday afternoon while my sick child played happily with her toys and my husband watched football, I pulled out my cheese grater and mixing bowls and got to work. With the permission of my friend who gave me the recipe for this laundry soap, I am going to share it with you today.
Laundry soap – makes one batch
1 bar of White Ivory
1/3 bar of Yardley’s lavender
1/3 bar of Yardley’s oatmeal and almond
Grate with a cheese grater
Add 1 2/3 cup of Baking Soda or Washing Soda
Add 1 2/3 cup of Borax
Mix well and store in an air tight container.
1 TBSP normal loads
2 TBSP for extra dirty or extra large loads
This time I added: 1 cup of Oxyclean powder
I make three batches all together and it will last 4-5 months! I love it! Give it a try and let me know if you like it.
