A year ago I decided to save a little money by making my own laundry soap. I have gotten many questions about how I liked it, so I thought I’d give you an update.
I filled a large glass container (a two gallon Heritage Hill jar from Walmart), and a year later I still have a third of the batch left! We are a family of two and we probably do 3-4 loads of laundry a week and I haven’t had to buy any laundry detergent this year! I use to buy at least three big bottles of Liquid Laundry Detergent every year, and for about the price of one bottle I can wash clothes with my homemade powder for about 16 months. For our family that’s about 250 loads!
I’ve never had an issue with it cleaning our clothes. Only once did I have an issue with it dissolving- but it was with the pieces of Zote soap in the recipe that I had microwaved, the grated Zote soap has always dissolved just fine. I also like how it smells. You don’t have to use the Downy Unstopables fabric softener, but I did because I like how it smells.
