I'm telling you guys, this stuff is addicting! It's exciting to make something myself, with simple, natural ingredients, so that I'M in control of what I'm putting on my (and my dear husband's) skin, and actually SAVE MONEY in the process. And it's not hard! I'm so stoked about this. Can you tell? ;-)
Alright, so on to the recipes. Since the laundry detergent and dryer sheets are the ones I've actually made so far, those are the ones I'll share this time around.
Homemade Laundry Detergent
1 cup Borax
1 cup washing soda
1 bar of soap, grated*
Grate your soap into a bowl and mix with the other two ingredients. Store in an airtight container and use 2-3 tablespoons for a large load of laundry. That's it!
*The soap you use is totally up to you -- go super organic and natural, or go scented and colorful. It all depends on what you want to put on your skin. I used a bar of Dove Unscented, because my husband has very sensitive skin and this is the kind of soap he uses daily, so I knew it wouldn't cause him any trouble.
