Over the past few weeks I have had multiple inquiries asking if I have ever made my own laundry soap. The answer is YES YES YES I have and after I did, I never looked back.
In todays blast from the near past, I share the article I wrote describing my experience making my own laundry soap with just three ingredients: Borax, Washing Soda, and Dawn dish detergent. Don’t ask me why this works so well – it just does! Not only that, according to my calculation, the cost is only 23 cents for a half-gallon batch or less than 1 1/2 cents per load using a full half cup per load.
I personally use this DIY Laundry Detergent in my HE, front loading washer and it works perfectly!

Dawn Ultra Original Scent Dishwashing Liquid: Dawn has to be one of the few household products I have been unable to duplicate myself. It is worth it to get the real thing.
Laundry Drying Rack: For even more savings, try line drying your laundry outdoors. The sun will provide a natural bleaching action and nothing beats the fresh smell – especially on pillow cases. I own a laundry drying rack which I keep on my deck. And when the weather is nice, I use it.
