Are you sick of paying an arm and leg for laundry detergent? Well I was so I decided to make my own. You probably thinks that seems way to hard, but trust me it’s easy and quick and you will save a lot of money. Besides saving you a ton of money homemade laundry detergent is also better for your clothes, it doesn’t put that harsh chemical build up that store bought detergent does, which in turn ends up on your skin and also breaks the fabric down.
I know most people love the smell of store bought laundry detergent but this detergent also smells amazing, so clean and fresh. So don’t worry you won’t be losing that clean smell on your laundry. Homemade detergent is also safe for babies skin. I hope you like this homemade laundry detergent as much as I do, save money and your save your clothes, can’t beat that.
Also for all you moms out there I use cloth diapers and this works amazing on them. Cleans them better then store bought detergent because it just cleans and doesn’t coat them with chemicals that actually will make them repel water (pee) . So this is a great item if you have kids because it still fights all those stains. My daughter is only 18 months so I haven’t experienced big kid stains, grass and dirt, but it works great on food spills and diapers so I would say it would do great at fighting big kid stains also.
