Homemade Laundry Detergent

I don't know about you but this economy truly sucks. No matter what I do to save I don't seem to be getting ahead. I have a family of 5, two of which are teens. We create so much laundry. I am constantly complaining about the cost of detergent and the fact that I have to buy so much. While blog hopping one day I came across a blog called Little Birdie Secrets. Fabulous crafty blog run by a group of friends. The blog is so good I have read every blog that they have written. When I like a blog, I really read almost all of it. Well, one post was about Homemade Laundry Detergent. I was so happy to see this post. Non other do they give the directions but they show how to do it step by step. Today I went out and got the ingrediants and tonight hubby and I will be making our own Laundry Detergent. I can tell you now that this $13 investment is going to save me over $100. Go me! Thanks so much to the ladies over at the Little Birdie Secrets Blog.

So if you are interested in saving some bucks and making your own laundry detergent go here!!

P.S. I'm using Japanese Cherry Blossom essential oil. You can change the scent to your favorite scent. I found it in the craft section in Walmart. The ingrediants I found at the supermarket. Walmart only sells the Borax.

Good Luck!
