Another thing that is great to use with your laundry and to save money is to make your own dryer sheet!! Soak a washcloth in full strength liquid softener. Wring out excess, then lay out to dry first before using–helps prevent staining laundry the first time. To use: toss in the dryer and use again and again until it no longer works. Resoak when needed (you should be able to do a few dozen loads per soak). Just dont forget what your cloth looks like and fold it and put it up with the rest of your washclothes!
I have yet to make laundry detergent not because I think its too hard to make or because I don't want to you. Its because we have recently purchased the 5 gallon buckets of detergent that are popular fundraisers right now. I love these fundraisers because they are a really useful item unlike many other things that are fundraisers and they will not add inches to my hips!!!
I hope this blog helped someone!!!
