DIY Powdered Laundry Detergent


I made this recipe of laundry detergent for $2.49, which lasted a month for my family of 5 - roughly 40 loads of laundry. I have been very happy with how clean out clothes are and it's great for my kids who have skin allergies.
3 ingredients: washing soda, borax & Ivory bar soap.

    This idea looks great! Is this okay to use with HE washers?

    Too late! After 3 breakdowns in only 3 years, costing (along with the original price) just under $1,000.00, Whirlpool refused to acknowlege that it was just not good value, so I've been using the laundromat since! Very expensive and very inconvenient. In my mother's day, expensive appliances lasted many many years! It's sickening but what can i do?
