Do you make your own detergent?

I do. I love it! It smells like coffee :D

  • Either you're using a very different recipe from mine or you really suck at making coffee ;-)

    I make my own and it pretty much smells like Fels-Naptha. I couldn't imagine going back to buying it. My last batch cost under a dollar (just had to buy the soap) and it'll last me about a year.

  • I use the recipe from the Duggars website to make mine. It's wicked easy, takes about 30 minutes to make it and it washes hundreds of loads.

  • Nope, I've never done that. How do you make it and how do you get it scented? I love the smell of the laundry detergent I use, and always figured that if you made your own it wouldn't have a scent. However, I love the smell of coffee, lol!

  • For my regular clothes I use 1 bar of soap (its WAHM and coffee scented), 1 cup of washing soda, and 1/2 cup of borax.
