Save Loads with Homemade Laundry Detergent

Did you know that the average family spends an average of $70 or more on laundry detergent? You can save a load by making your own laundry detergent, plus it's the best way to know exactly what you're using to clean your clothes. This simple recipe from Aol costs as little as $20 for an entire year:

"First, take one bar of natural soap (like castile or a gentle glycerin soap) and finely grate it with a cheese grater. Then, take the soap flakes and sprinkle in one cup of washing soda and one cup of borax, sealing your new cleaning concoction in an airtight container. When it's laundry time, mix in about 1-2 tablespoons per load. It doesn't take much with this concentrated material -- one batch of super-soap can get you through 40-50 loads."

NON-TOXIC CLEANING: The typical American home contains about three to 10 gallons of toxic materials in the form of household cleaning products. Even "green" alternatives can contain harmful ingredients. Thankfully, you can save money and avoid toxins with natural cleaners. Check out these natural cleaning tips for your whole home that take advantage of baking soda, coconut oil, and more!
