Make Stuff Monday ~ Homemade DRY Laundry Soap!

“Eeeee”!!!  *doing the happy mama dance*

I am estatic to share with you this awesome recipe that I found over the weekend from myfrugallifestyle for homemade laundry soap! It is incredibly easy, fantastically cheap and it wonderfully works! It only requires three ingredients and I was able to find all of them at my local Kroger grocery store. Bonus!

I jumped all over this when I got home and it took me no more than five minutes to make – and now I am super duper thrilled that I no longer have to purchase the overly-priced commercial stuff.

What do you need?

1 Bar of Fels-Naptha soap bar, grated

1 Cup of Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda

1 Cup Borax


1. You will want to grate your bar of Fels-Naptha using your smallest cheese grater. I grated mine over a glass casserole dish making it easy to add all of the ingredients!

2. Add the Washing Soda and Borax to the grated soap and mix!

3. Pour your mixture into a tightly-sealed container such as a used pickle jar (which is what I chose) or a rubbermaid or tupperware container and shake well! Use 1-2 TBSP of soap depending on your wash load.


That. Is. It.

Can you believe how crazy easy this is! Makes me wonder why I EVER paid money for the commercial brand. Three cheers for laundry! (I did NOT just say that did I)? What I will cheer about though is the fact that this comes to only $1.91 per batch and only .06 cents per wash load (if you use 2TBSP for every wash load, you will end up with 32 wash loads). Pretty Eco-tastic eh?

*A special thank you to Stephanie for doing all this math bc I completely stink at it. LOL*

I hope you enjoy and cannot wait to hear how it works for your family too!!
