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
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
(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.
