So this is completely random, I know, but as I was doing laundry today I realized I am about out of laundry soap. I was given the following recipe by my cousins' wife (thank you Brooke); since then I have not purchased store-bought laundry soap. This recipe averages about $10 and lasts 3-6 months doing 6 loads of laundry per week. A HUGE savings over pre-made detergents-I hope you enjoy the savings as much as I do. And yes, this recipe can be used in front-loading machines because it does not create suds. The other thing I love is that I determine my own fragrance based on the bars of soap I choose to use. My babies tend to have sensitive skin at birth so I use Dove soap to help with the sensitivity. Enjoy!
