Making laundry detergent at home offers a few advantages. If you have a decent laundry recipe, you can make it using basic ingredients that can be found in most supermarkets. The reasons why you would want to make your own detergent are simple to understand.

* You know what is in it because you are making it.

* It is cheaper than traditional laundry detergent.

Regardless of the prices of the ingredients in your area, you will save money on detergent if you follow this simple laundry recipe. It is easy to make and works just as well as commercial detergent.

The list of ingredients contains just 5 items. You will need the following:

– 5 oz. of ivory soap

– 7 oz. of washing soda

– 4 lb. of baking soda

– 1.3 lb of Oxy-Clean

– 12 oz. of borax

There are only two steps to make your own laundry detergent. The first step is to break down the soap into powder-like granulation. To achieve this you need to grate the soap like cheese using a cheese grater. Once you are done with all the soap, pour the flakes into a food processor. Give it a couple of minutes in the food processor until the soap becomes granulated like sand.

With the soap prepared you are ready for the final step of the laundry recipe. Take everything, put it in a large plastic bag, and mix everything. You will need to find your own method of mixing the ingredients. You can even use a regular bucket and just stir the ingredients until they are properly mixed.

The total cost to make laundry detergent using this recipe is about $15. The quantity resulted is enough for around 200 washes. Each time you fill up your washing machine, use 1 to 2 tablespoons of this mix. Keep in mind that this laundry recipe does not have any type of fragrance and you will rely on fabric softener if you want to add some or just leave your laundry unscented.
