This week I decided to try a recipe I found online for homemade laundry detergent. Apparently, this is now "a thing" since when I went to Walmart for supplies, they were all located beside each other on the laundry aisle.
3 cups Borax
3 cups Washing Soda
3 bars of soap (The site I saw suggested Fels Naptha--which is what I tried, but the scent is strong, so next batch I plan on Ivory.)
About 15 drops of essential oil for scent. (I used lavender.)
