Homemade Laundry Detergent

Liz, this is for you!!

I started making my own laundry detergent in order to save a little bit of money. I have been doing it for about 6 months and make it about twice a month for a family of 5. It is very simple and I am pleased with the cleanliness of our clothes. Here is a link to a site that has several different ways to make it, I personally use the powder version for its simplicity. I can't say exactly how much I save a month on my laundry but I would guesstimate around 8 dollars a month which in a year equals 96 dollars, I know it doesn't seem like much but it is important to remember that the little things add up.
