      Kelly,

      This recipe costs pennies to make. Most importantly, it is made from safe
      ingredients, not tons of toxic chemicals that are in most detergents and
      soaps.

      I am highly sensitive to many chemicals, so am unable to use most commercial
      products. The laundry soap that I had used previously was similar to Wisk
      (NFI) liquid and cost around $30 a gallon.

      The washing soda, borax, and vegetable oil soap are safe products for me to
      use.

      (I don’t buy any other cleaning products like furniture polish, window
      cleaner, bathroom cleaner. All products I use are safe and
      inexpensive–vinegar, baking soda, lemon juice, borax, etc. so the
      ingredients for the laundry soap are not extras for me since I use them for
      other cleaning applications throughout the house.)

      It all boils down to personal preference. In providing the laundry soap
      recipe, I was providing an inexpensive alternative.

      I hope this clarifies things for you.

      Ok, This mite sound stupid, but would’nt it just be
      cheaper to buy your own laundry detergent instead of
      buying all that extra stuff?? I am lookin for ways to
      save money also, but this sounds like alot of extras
      to buy. I get big bottle of laundry detergent for only
      2.50 at dollar general.

      >> 3 pints of water
      >> 1/3 to 1/2 bar of soap
      >> 1/2 cup borax
      >> 1/2 cup washing soda
      >> 2 gallon bucket
      >> 1 quart hot water
      >> cold water
