Do you remember this post? It was one of the few posts I did when I was just testing the waters with this whole blogging thing. Let me just say that I’m glad I grew in the picture area!
Anyway, this post was among one of my most popular pinned posts on pinterest. Apparently, many more mom’s would like to know how to save money and make things themselves. One of them being laundry detergent.
I made this post a year ago and love it! Many people make their’s differently, so do what works best for you!
Here are my reviews:
- I’ve tried the Purex Crystals-love them! (but way too expensive!) So I stopped buying them and started making my own.
- I now add two bars of fels naphtha and one bar of zote
- Oxi clean was great but baking soda does the same job so I omit it.
*While I did do research for the individual products with high-efficiency washers, keep in mind that products react differently together. I’ve heard that some have had issues and some have had none. Could be the way they are using it and could be compatibility. I will post testimonials on that at a later date.
Now I do this with my eyes closed! I have a Maytag top loading washing machine now and because my hubby is an appliance snob, he refuses to let me use my homemade detergent. So I am hanging on to old Norma for dear life hoping this he washer issue get’s sorted out!
