For years, I made my own liquid laundry detergent every couple of months. That being said, I always put of making the detergent until I absolutely had to, because it was messy and needed my undivided attention to make (something I don't have much of). Overall, I loved this laundry soap, but really wanted an easier one to make.
Then I ran across a recipe for dry laundry soap that could also be used in HE Washers. This recipe is so fast and easy, it's unbelievable! The other part I like about this recipe is that it includes OxyClean, which I find really cleans my clothes better than find the pool supplies. Here is where you can get my number #1 laundry recipe: Laundry Detergent Recipe. I've copied and pasted the Liquid Recipe I used below for your reference.
Here is my recipe for that detergent that I first posted on my first blog, www.spartasavings.blogspot.com:
*Washing soda is Sodium Carbonate and we found a 97% Sodium Carbonate in the pool aisle of Wal-mart. The product is by hth Spa and is called pH increaser. I've even seen this go on clearance, so it seems readily available (more so than the A&H Washing Soda.)
