I love making homemade laundry soap. It is extremely simple & only requires a handful of rather cheap ingredients.
I first started making the liquid recipe a little over a year ago & have never looked back. It's a huge money saver & is very environmentally friendly. I've since moved on to using the powdered kind & I find making & storing the powder to be even easier.
If you've ever been interested in making your own laundry detergent, but had reservations, I've come across a great resource for you. Tipnut has compiled an extremely extensive list of commonly asked homemade laundry soap questions & their answers. If you're on the fence I hope this helps you & convinces you to try it yourself. You won't be sorry!
