- a toilet paper roll
- .14 cents
- 4 socks-1 complete pair, whoo!
- a cap to...?

- one missing milker pad that I've been searching for for months.
So today, I went out and got some Borax, Fels Naptha, and Washing Soda-all under $8. I've seen a many blogs boast about making your own laundry detergent. I'm usually a liquid detergent kind of gal, but the dry ingredients were simple and few-there's only three. AND I have the perfect container for it. Here's what you do!
Mix 2 parts washing soda-I started with to cups (--not baking soda--helps fight stains and allows the detergent to foam making your clothes clean without any residue)
2 parts Borax (a laundry booster. It leaves your clothes cleaner and brighter.)
1 Part Fels-Natha-grated. (heavy duty bar soap that is a nifty stain fighter and pre-treater)
I've seen some grate it like cheese and the stick it in the food processor to grate it even finer, but I figured the grater is good enough for me.
Do a little shakin' and done!
5 minutes tops :)
I've seen that some pour in 2-4 tbps per load, but I would assume that it depends on the load.
My method as follows:
3- Medium Load
Now, not only do I have a clean little closet, but a cheaper and easier alternative to laundry detergent that will last a lot longer than the usual stuff.
Can't wait to try it!
