Homemade Laundry Soap

Making homemade laundry soap is one of the big ways our family saves money. I thought I'd make a video of how easy it is to do. Let me know what you think!


video
My recipe:
3 Gallons Water
1 Cup Borax (5 oz dry weight)
1 Cup Super Washing Soda (10 oz dry weight)
1 Bar Fels Naptha Soap (5 1/2 oz dry weight)

This batch will last us at least 6 months & only cost me $1.22 to make! I use about 1/3 cup each load. Ingredients were purchased at Walmart.

Walmart Prices on Ingredients:
Fels Naptha Soap- $0.97
Box of Borax- $2.98
Box of Washing Soda- $2.68

Coupons I used:
$1.00 off any 2 Arm & Hammer Laundry Items from 4/10/11 Smart Source Newspaper Insert.
$0.35 off any Fels Naptha Bar Soaps (Got this one by emailing the company for current coupons)

To make a long story short, here is my cost breakdown for each batch:
Fels Naptha Soap- $0.62

Box of Borax- $0.20
Box of Washing Soda- $0.40
----------------------------------
That's a total of only $1.22!

    • Use the $1/1 Snapple coupon
    • Pay $3.98, but then submit for the Snapple rebate found on the packaging

Keep in mind that purchases must be made between 3/27/11 and 6/30/11 and be postmarked by 7/11/11.  Let us know if you’ve found these rebate forms at your Walmart or any other store!
