If you are interested in living green, then this $10 Per Year for Laundry Homemade Laundry Detergent Recipe will be perfect for you to make. This is a diy laundry detergent made with eco friendly materials, which is wonderful for keeping our Earth clean. There are so many different laundry detergents out there on the market, some are the traditional soaps like Tide or Sunlight that you can find at the grocery stores in the cleaning supplies isle. You can also purchase all natural cleaning detergents at the grocery store as well, but why spent $10 per bottle of environmentally friendly detergent that may only last a month or two, when you can make your own diy laundry detergent that will only cost you $10 per year? Think of all the money you could save. At $10 per bottle of the natural laundry soap, you might need up to 10 bottles a year depending on how much you need, especially if you have a larger sized family. So that would cost you around $100 per year. It would take you 10 years for this diy laundry detergent to cost you that much.

Fels Naptha Laundry Soap is well known type of soap that comes from America. It is made by the Dial company and has been used since 1893 for laundry washing, pretreating clothes with nasty stains and also for natural home remedies to treat things like poison ivy irritations. The soap helps to wash away the poison that eventually would seep below the skin's surface. Since this soap is so great for removing oily stains, it makes a great laundry detergent to use for even the toughest stained clothing. The Fels Naptha Laundry Soap bar gets grated so that it will dissolve into the mixture of the water, borax and washing soda. The ingredients are all heated and stirred together to create nice viscous liquid that will gel over night as it sits. The recipe uses all eco friendly materials, and is generally pretty easy to make in an afternoon that you have free. The soap should be stirred before each use, because it does have the tendency to separate a bit. Another thing to know is that this diy laundry detergent will also not lather and make bubbles, but it still does a great job of cleaning your clothes and it is safe to use in High Efficiency washing machines.

There is even a video that shows you exactly how to make this soap right at home, showing you the step by step instructions that you need to follow in order to get the best results. Videos are great to watch and provide good visual reference for any task or recipe you might be trying to make yourself at home. When you can see exactly how it is done, there is no confusion as to what the steps are. If you like to have a scent to your laundry soap, as many people do, you can add some safe, 100% pure essential oils in your laundry soap mix to give it a nice scent. Lavender would be quite nice, or even a nice light orange or lemon scent.
