Make your own laundry detergent

It's easier than you think to make your own laundry detergent, and it costs about 5 cents per load versus about 20 cents per load for the store-bought variety. Powdered detergent is especially easy to make. Here's a simple recipe from PlanetGreen.com to save money, with ingredients all available in the cleaning-supply aisle of your local grocery store:

  • 2 cups finely grated soap.
  • 1 cup washing soda.
  • 1 cup borax.
  • Mix well and use 2 tablespoons per full load.
