One Year of Laundry Detergent for Less Than $3!

Well, August 21, 2012, I finally used the last of my laundry detergent that I made a year ago...yes, a YEAR AGO!  Last August I made my own homemade liquid laundry detergent and our family of four has used this detergent every week for a year.  I still can't believe it! 
I remade the recipe the other night and all I needed to buy was another Fels-Naptha bar which was $1.  I have so much Washing Soda and Borax from last year that I could make a lot more recipes.  I have figured, it cost less than $3 to make one large recipe of detergent...which, may I say it again...lasted our family ONE WHOLE YEAR!
Here is the link to the recipe:


  1. I should try this recipe, I've been making my own powdered detergent for a while now, but it sounds like this may last longer!
