Update: DIY Laundry Detergent

Back in October 2013, I made my first batch of homemade laundry detergent.

Well, it's now April 2015, and I am running low and have had to make a new batch!

Yup, this stuff lasted me a year and a half- doing about 1 to 3 loads a week! I think this stuff works very well in getting our laundry clean and smelling fresh, hence why I wanted to make it again.

I am using all the same ingredients as last time, except this time I'm using a bigger tub of Oxi-Clean and a bigger bottle of the Purex Crystals. So this batch has cost me a little more than the last batch.

Here is the breakdown of the ingredients and prices:

Pure Baking Soda - 1 (4 lbs. box)                        $2.24
Super Washing Soda - 1 (3 lbs.7oz. box)             $3.97
Borax - 1 (4lbs. box)                                            $3.97
Oxi-Clean - 1 (5 lbs. tub)                                     $9.47
Purex Crystals - 1 (48oz bottle)                           $8.96
Fels Naptha laundry bar - (2 bars)                       $1.94 ($.97 each)
                                                                Total:    $30.55

All you need to do is grate the Fels Naptha bars and mix everything in a big bucket and that's it! (More details can be found on my first batch post.)

This batch costs about $7 more than the first, but I found that using a smaller container of Oxi-Clean and a smaller bottle of Purex Crystals like last time works absolutely fine. The reason I got a bigger tub and a bigger bottle was because I had a little extra cash. But either way, it'll work out great!

Please let me know if you have any questions/comments/suggestions/etc!
