I ventured into the world of making my own laundry detergent a few months ago when I realized that the cost of commercially available soap couldn’t compare to the cost savings of making my own. Homemade laundry detergent can be made for pennies compared to commercially produced detergent.
I also liked the idea of eliminating more chemicals from our daily lives. Laundry detergent has some really nasty chemicals in it when it comes down to it.
I spent quite a bit of time researching the pros and cons of detergent making, especially when it came to cost since I never buy detergent without a coupon anyway. Ultimately, I decided it was worth my time to at least give it a try.
