On Making Homemade Detergent

This is the recipe I follow and have been very happy with.  It requires 3 ingredients, sold at Walmart that equal around $12!! Here's the best part, you will make 3 large size containers out of these 3 ingredients.  Cheap and it works!  Who doesn't love that?
Clarie shaving the 1/3 of a bar of the soap into 6 cups of water.  Love when kids can help!
Love when my kiddos can help!

1/3 of a bar of the Fels Naptha soap dissolving in 6 cups water over med heat.

Only 1/2 a cup of each of these ingredients go in.

1 Gallon and 10 cups gets mixed in a bucket with everything else and then pour bucket of ingredents into empty large container of detergent.  Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!!
Let me know what you think.  


  1. Laundry detergent, right? not dishwashing?

  2. Yes, laundry detergent! It's awesome and worth a little prep time!
