Call me crazy… that’s okay. I am a list maker; even if I don’t put pen to paper or fingers to the keys, the list(s) still live in my head. It’s just who I am. My name is Mimi and I am a list-o-holic. I have come to terms with that and embraced it.
I ♥ homemade laundry soap so much….I made a list!
How could you not love homemade laundry soap if you could have it for $4.00 a year ($.01 a day)?
- Very, very cost-effective
Dry soap recipe ($18.00 for 5-6 months)
Liquid laundry soap recipe ($4.00 approximately 1 year)
- Clothes don’t fade
- Gets out stubborn stains
- Less laundry soap is needed per load
- Low suds make homemade laundry soap a great option for Front End (HE) washers
- Fels Naptha reportedly kills Poison Ivy found in clothes
- Safely cleans “dry clean only”
- You control the ingredients in your homemade laundry soap
- No longer dependent on large corporations and their chemical based products
- Arm and Hammer has been around since the 1880’s, I like that it is a simple product that works and only has 2 ingredients
- Borax has been around since the 1900’s and has simple ingredients
- Zote is readily available and is made with coconut oil and tallow
- (1) 5 gallon bucket of liquid laundry soap will do over 400 loads of laundry…for $4.00
- Ingredients have a long shelf life and can be stored in airtight 5 gallon buckets for long term storage
- It’s easy to make your own homemade laundry soap
Share my soap recipes with a friend or family member. Heck, schedule a soap making day, drink coffee (or wine) and enjoy the day with your friends. At the end of the day, you will have saved hundreds of dollars, had a great time with your friends and come away with enough laundry soap for a year. $.01 a day is still astonishing to me. High fives all around.
