Mom to Mom: Handmade Detergent

(41NBC/WMGT) —  If  you’re tired of having to always go frequently to the store for laundry detergent and deal with the higher prices look no further! Today we have a homemade recipe of laundry detergent that’ll last you twice as long at half the cost.

So, what you’re going to need is Borax Laundry Booster, then you’re going to need some Arm and Hammer Super Washing Soda, and something called Fels-Naptha which is a laundry bar and stain remover, so it helps with the laundry detergent altogether. It’s the key ingredient, so you want to make sure that you get this guy and you can find it at Walmart and it’s fairly inexpensive.

You’re going to need about a cup of each, the Borax and the Arm and Hammer. Mix that into a bowl, then you’re going to take your bar of Fels-Naptha and grate that on the smallest side of the grater. You’re going to do about half the bar into the mixture. Once you’re done with that, mix it all together, and you’ve got your laundry detergent. You can store this in anything you like.
