don't eat this at home or anywhere else

project: homemade liquid laundry detergent

I had been using some homemade powdered detergent out of the same ingredients that I liked. The liquid detergent is supposed to be even more cost effective so... sounds good to me!! It was super easy to make and so far seems to work just fine and dandy.

I used this "recipe" which was a smaller recipe than many I saw online. It makes 2 gallons as opposed to one I saw that made 10 gallons worth of soap.

supplies I used:

notice: WASHING soda not baking soda.
I found this at Fry's (I could not find it at my Walmart)
some sort of container
and there it is!

reports are that this detergent costs you about $.01 a load of laundry!
