laundry detergent

so, later this week i am going to try out making my own laundry detergent. thanks to my sister-in-law gwen! gwen, have you made any yet? i have been doing some research on it and i’m gonna give it a try.  because of the kids exzcema i only buy tide free detergent. i have tried a few more ‘natural’ detergent over the past few years but have stuck with tide free. sometimes i can find it on sale for $10 but most of the time i pay $12.97-$13.97 for one bottle and it’s not the big one because it only comes in the smaller ones. so, i am hoping this works and saves money.

here is one recipe for making your own detergent that i like best because they provide pictures! the ones i have been finding online seem to use the same ratio. i am planning on using dove’s bar soap for sensitive skin that we use daily. i did read once that it is ok to use in HE washers because the homemade laundry detergent produces low suds and that’s what HE washer require. so, if you have a HE do some research but you might be ok. i did find recipes for making homemade liquid laundry detergent but i don’t see the need for me to do the necessary extra steps for that.

let me know if you have tried making your own laundry detergent and how it went.
