Homemade Laundry Detergent – Success!

I did it! Do you remember my massive failed attempt at homemade laundry detergent? It was earlier this year and I basically tried to alter the recipe because I was impatient and couldn’t find all the ingredients at the grocery store. Yeah, don’t do what I did. If you want to read all about my failed attempt and maybe get a good laugh in the process, click here. Anyway, this time I followed the recipe exactly as posted and it worked!

The recipe I used is from the Dugger Family website and can be found here. Do Not, I repeat, DO NOT try to substitute Super Washing Soda for anything else. It won’t work! After a bit of searching, I was able to find this product at our local Wal-Mart. If all else fails, I know you can purchase it online.

I’ve been using this detergent for a few months now and I absolutely love it! The consistency takes a little bit of getting used to, but the mixture does gel as promised. It cleans well and the real bonus is that it’s practically free it’s so cheap! I still purchase fabric softener because I’m not willing to sacrifice that yummy fresh laundry smell. “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!” I’m now a believer and don’t think I’ll ever go back to spending money on laundry detergent!
Lots of love,

    I have been making homemade laundry soap for almost a year now. I love it! I also use the Dugger’s recipe! I still buy fabric softener too! I figure I am saving so much by making the soap I can afford to splurge there!
