Homemade laundry detergent?

Yay or Nay? I didn't want to try it at first thinking it wouldn't get the job done. I am a Tide girl through and through but when  my sister said she tried it and liked it I figured I'd give it a go. And the verdict is...yay! I love it! It gets the clothes just as clean as before for pennies! SO, if you are hesitant to try it I would have to say go for it. To get all of the supplies including a 5 gallon bucket it cost about $15. I've made around 4 huge batches without having to go to the store. It's really simple to make and it's worked for our family wonderfully.  Here is where I pinned the recipe. The only adjustments I made was I used more fels-naptha bar than the recipe called for. So has anyone else tried out the homemade laundry soap? What recipe do you prefer?


  1. I have used this soap before. (It was a Christmas gift - Yay!) But I actually really liked it and would use it again.

  2. This is the recipe I've used for almost a year now and love it!
