    i did the math and it figured out to be 7.00 for 2 1/2 gallons. and i am only using 1/4 cup per load. i cant break it down better than that but hubby said it is much cheaper than by buy 1 get 2 dynamo from meijer.

    i came back here today to see exactly when i made my laundry detergent. i cant believe i made the batch in march. it was a double batch. i made my second batch today. i cant believe it lasted 6 months. granted i made a double batch but i also have a husband and 3 kids so i do a lot of laundry. i really do love homemade products over store bought.

    16 cups in a gallon, 2.5 gallons = 40 cups. 4 loads per cup = 160 loads. $7.00/160 = .04375 or a little less than 4.5 cents per load!! Nice!!

Size:  2.9 KBFels Naptha is located in the laundry soap isle near the borax soap. You can also purchase it on amazon.

    Found some!! Thank you! Now, if they will just get more washing powder in. They've been out for 3 weeks now.

    I figure since I use borax and washing powder on a regular basis anyway I oughta try this "recipe" for detergent

    Thanks for your help!

    I started making my own laundry detergent about three years ago, and I noticed that my dark clothes didn't have that "worn look around the seams and zippers" It turns out that the homemade detergent was getting out the detergent buildup on the clothes. My washing machine also had less hard water deposits. I don't think I ever want to go back to commercial detergent.

    Can you use homemade detergent on items that you wash by hand ?

    I have a slightly different recipe I use for hand washables that uses grated "ZOTE" bar laundry soap. I've sort of made it up as I've gone along, so give me a few days to put together a new batch and I'll get the recipe to you. As I make it I will know whether I am forgetting anything, so I can write it down accurately.
