Homemade Detergent

I came across this blog post and was intrigued.  I am always looking for ways to DIY things around the house in order to save money or make our home a little more green.  I decided as expensive as laundry detergent is, it would be worth trying to make my own! 


So, I pulled out the cheese grater and got to work. 

I mixed everything together, did a load of laundry and have been using this detergent recipe ever since! 


It only takes one scoop per load (I used a spare coffee scoop, about 2 tablespoons), so this large batch I made recently may last us forever!
