In this day and age, it is important for everyone to save money whenever they can. Some of the most expensive items are laundry detergents and soaps. Not just that but many of them are made with chemicals which may irritate your skin. An alternative is to make your own laundry detergent. How to do this and recipes for making it can be found on the Internet.



Homemade laundry detergents or homemade laundry soaps can be made with three basic ingredients - naphtha soap, washing soda, and borax. All of these items can be found in the aisle where laundry products are sold
at your local supermarket as well as on-line. Once you have prepared your mixture it should be gel-like but if you find that it’s a bit lumpy that’s alright too and it can be used right away. If you are not happy with the scent if gives off you can add any kind of essential oil you like to it.



These homemade laundry detergents will get your clothes as clean as the ones you would buy from the store. The only difference is that it will cost you a lot less money. Don’t be concerned if you see that there are no suds because this type of detergent doesn’t need suds it cleans the clothes just fine. If you are worried that you may be allergic to the soap you will add to the recipe then you can use the soap you usually wash with.



Another great thing about doing it yourself is that this type of detergent can also be used to scrub toilets, sinks and other surfaces, get dirty floors clean, and so on. Homemade laundry detergent has no petroleum byproducts and won’t get detergent buildup on your clothes or in your machine.



Don’t worry about the process of making the detergent because actually it is not difficult at all and you only need three ingredients. On-line you can find sites with various recipes and also videos which demonstrate the process. Others have step by step informative pictures so grab a bucket and get going.



Before placing your laundry in the machine you can pretreat the stains on some of your dirtiest clothes by rubbing a bit of the detergent into the stain and then washing. You will see that your white T-shirts come out practically as white as they would have been if you had used a commercial detergent.



Take a trip to your local supermarket and make a note of what your favorite type of laundry detergent costs. Consider how much laundry you do per year and how often you have to purchase the detergent. Then look to see how much the ingredients for homemade laundry detergent cost. Make up a batch and test it out. Compare and see how much you may have already saved.



This is especially good for families with children of school age who come home from school a lot of times with clothes which already need washing. It’s great for toddlers and babies who need to have detergents which won’t irritate their skin. All in all you are doing the best for your family and saving money as well.
