  • It's "Amish" and you don't have to be Amish to make something from scratch.

  • For the laundry detergent I make I mix 3 parts Washing Soda to 1 part Baking Soda and 1 part Oxy-Clean (an off brand works just fine and is cheaper). I use 1 Tbsp. for smaller loads or 2 Tbsp. for larger or more soiled loads =)

  • Try any of these: http://tipnut.com/10-homemade-laundry-soap-detergent-recipes/


    This is the one I've used:  http://www.thefamilyhomestead.com/laundrysoap.htm


    Homemade laundry soap works great, leaves little to no soap residue in the clothes (meaning no fabric softener required), and saves a lot of money over the commercially manufactured soaps.
