save a buck!!

hey girls!  i came across a great recipe for laundry detergent.  it's super cheap and super easy!  it doesn't lather up like the store bought kind, but it works great!  try it!

1 fels-naptha soap bar
1 cup washing soda
1/2 cup borax

-cut soap into pieces and process in a food processor until powdered.  mix all ingredients.  use a couple tablespoons per medium size load.

normally, i buy liquid.  here's a link for a homemade liquid version.  i just opted for the easiest one to make...  :) www.duggarfamily.com/recipes.html

good luck!
