Homemade Laundry Detergent

Standard

I love using homemade Laundry Detergent.  I found a recipe on the Duggar Family Website here.  I have been using it for a little over two years & have only made 4 batches!  All you need is a few simple ingredients, a 5 gallon bucket, and some smaller jugs (like the empty gallon vinegar jugs you’ll have on hand if you use non-chemical cleaners!)

EDIT:  I quit making the liquid laundry detergent some time ago. I switched to this creamy detergent… still homemade, and still the same basic ingredients.  Then I switched again!  Now I use the same ingredients… but it’s powder, so prep time is quite a bit less.  I found the recipe here.  Really, there’s a zillion of these recipes out there.  You can even add these scented laundry bead thingys, but I prefer my laundry to smell like clean cloth, not froofy flowers or some such scent.

I get all the supplies I need from here: Borax, Super Washing Soda, Fels-Naptha Soap

Have you made your own laundry detergent?  
What recipe do you use?
