DIY Laundry Detergent (Smells Amazing for Weeks!)


Hi All!
I’ve been away for quite some time but I’m back!!
This is a post I’ve been wanting to write for a while.
DIY Laundry Powder!!
As you all know, hubby and I were married young!
Of course, we tried to save money in every way we could think of!
I stumbled on this one day on Pinterest and went for it.
It cost about $11.00 to make and $6.00 for the tub I use to store it.
This usually lasts us about four months (six months if used properly).
We normally wash three loads per week.
All items were purchased at Wal-Mart (they seem to have the best prices.)

Products to make detergent:
1 box of Borax
1 box of Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda
1 Box of Baking Soda
2 Bottles of Purex Crystals (whatever scent you’d like)
1 box of Purex or Oxi Stain Fighter
1 box of Zote Soap Flakes.



You can also buy a bar of Zote soap, but you will have to grate the soap into fine pieces.
The bar usually is $1.00 after taxes and the box of flakes are $2.
After you’ve gathered all your ingredients simply mix everything on the tub. I use a large spoon the mix well.

I use one of the caps from the Purex crystals to scoop the detergent (hubby uses three 🤦🏽‍♀️ ).

This is a great way the save if you are a college student or a frugal family of six!
The smell lasts for weeks, I washed a shirt three weeks ago and I still smell the scent!
Let me know if you are going to try it out or if you have another DIY laundry detergent recipe!

Christ, Peace & Naps ✌🏾
