how did i get roped into making homemade laundry detergent? i have NO idea…but it is fabulous!
on a couple of blogs that i check in on from time to time (soule mama and petit lyons) both referred to homemade detergent. laundry was becoming something that i disliked doing…smelly t-shirts, who wants to deal with that? so now i’ve found an all natural detergent that i get to make and it’s a fun thing for the little lady of the house to help with…sold.
here’s the recipe…
1 cup borax
1 cup baking soda
1 cup soda ash (which i found a 5lb bucket of at the pool store)
1 1/2 bars of castille soap, finely grated (we used peppermint, dr. bronner‘s castille soap…and for you mommy’s out there, they also have a baby mild soap)
mix together and store in a glass jar.
**for fabric softener…white vinegar…it works wonders!**
laundry has been fun (i can’t believe that i just said that)! and i’ve had two little helpers…which makes it the most fun…
