Homemade Laundry Detergent
Recently I read a book about the Duggars, a family with 18 (or is it 19 now?) children. It included this recipe for homemade laundry detergent. I made a half recipe since I only had a 3 gallon bucket and it cost around $1! According to the Duggar website, this should be enough for appoximately 90 loads of laundry in a top loading washing machine. I'll let you know how well the soap works. It was super easy to make. Once I had assembled all the ingredients, I had the soap melted and mixed in with the water within 10 minutes. I let it sit overnight and it was a nice jell. Now I have to dilute it with water and I should be able to wash some clothes!
