FRUGAL FRIDAY! 6/4
The recipe I shared with you HERE, cost .71 cents for 64 loads! That's a whopping .01 cent per load! If you need me to post the breakdown I will but trust me, it's accurate.
So I ask you, will you please try a batch or 2 of this? You won't be disappointed! I do an average of 10 loads per week so it costs me .10 cents per week to wash my clothes. If you use Tide, you're spending $2.40 per week, $124.80 per year. Mine costs me $5.20 PER YEAR! I know it doesn't sound like a lot, but if you add that to 5 or 6 other things you save over $100 on, you've just freed up an extra $500 or more per year!
I hope you're inspired. It's cheap and green!
NOTE: From reading several other reviews on homemade laundry detergent, I've decided to use Ivory soap next time as several posts have reported color fading from using the Fels Naptha. I have not experienced this color fade as of yet.
