In my last post I talked about the benefits of giving thrifting a try. Today, in another effort to save myself and my readers money, I'm talking about homemade laundry soap. I searched the internet for any recipes for homemade laundry soap I could find. Then I studied reviews on each until I'd found the recipe I wanted to use. I chose the Duggar Family recipe which you can find here.
Now, some of you may be wondering if it's really worth it to make your own laundry soap. Here's how I was convinced. Every two weeks I purchase a bottle of Gain liquid laundry detergent at $10.97 at Walmart. That adds up to roughly $286 a year for our family of three. One batch of homemade laundry detergent costs a little less than $2 which adds up to $52 a year. That was all the convincing I needed.
