Homemade laundry detergent I love this recipe and have been using it for over three years!  This recipe costs me about $19.00 annually to make myself.  1 batch will last my family of five, almost 3 months.  I just made a fresh batch yesterday and used Zote soap.  I’ve always used the Fels Naptha in the past, but wanted to try something new to see how it does.  So far so good 🙂  Enjoy!
