It’s time to make some more laundry detergent!! Our family is completely out!!!! I really like this recipe since it is so inexpensive to make. If you add it up, it comes out to costing about $.60 a gallon. It is so much cheaper than buying Tide. I used to buy one large Tide container a week. Then one year, my husband lost his job and buying Tide was out of the picture. It was better to have food on the table than buy expensive laundry detergent. Everyone thought I was a little “nuts” but we had to do something.
