So, on this Thrifty Thursday I thought I'd share one very small way I save us a few bucks every month. All it takes is three ingredients and a container to store it in - all of which can be found at your local grocery store or Wal-Mart/Target. I make our laundry detergent - usually whipping up a quick batch once a month of so and have been doing so for close to a year.
What are those three ingredients you ask? There are several different 'recipes' but the one I make uses Oxy-Clean, Arm & Hammer Washing Soda & Borax 20 Mule Team. I mix equal parts of all ingredients in my cute little glass container and VOILA - laundry detergent. It takes me maybe 5-10 minutes total to make a new batch. I use a little condiment cup I found at Wal-Mart to scoop it out & measure it.
Super easy & each box of ingredients only costs a few dollars and lasts for a loooong time (and I do a LOT of laundry).
