After making my own Dishwasher Detergent I realized I had almost all the ingredients I needed to make my own Laundry Detergent.
I found this recipe here and decided to give it a try!
I found the perfect jar (I wanted a lid that would screw on since I store this up high. In case it fell, I didn't want the lid popping off!). And they I used some brown vinyl from Expressions Vinyl to add a label to the front of the jar.
Homemade Laundry Detergent:
- 1 c borax
- 1 c washing soda
- 1 bar of soap (ivory or fels naptha)
- First, grate your soap.
- Then, combine all ingredients in your jar and shake until well mixed.
- Use 1 tbs per load
I couldn't resist adding the recipe to the back of the jar again using the same brown vinyl!
And so there is no confusion, say, if someone else in my house wanted to do some laundry :), I used brown vinyl to label the top of the jar so that they would know exactly how much soap to use without needing to ask me!
It seems to work well. And from all the research I have done it seems to be ok for HE Machines. Hurray!
This was kind of fun making my own dishwasher detergent and laundry detergent!
And can you tell I had a lot of fun with the vinyl?! Clearly, brown is my most used vinyl color! What color of vinyl do you like best?
