In the beginning I LOVED the liquid homemade detergent I made...and now and for awhile now...I have been in love with the powder detergent...let me tell you why. First of all, in my opinion it cleans better, is easier to make, is easier to store and is easier to use. I use one to two tbsp of powder and it lasts for at least two months perhaps even three.
Here is my recipe:
1 Bar of Fels Naptha
1 Bar of Dove Soap ....I use neither of these now as I make my own soap. I now use two bars of my lavender soap....but this is what I used previously before I started making soap.
1/2 cup of Oxy Clean
1 cup of Tide or whatever commercial detergent you favor
2 cups of Borax
2 cups of washing Soda
We have hard water and I can't imagine not using all these ingredients!
Grate two bars of soap and then put in food processor with the powders.
|All ready in a lovely container|
Have a GREAT smelling day!
