Remember, here where Ethne gave us a tutorial on how to make homemade laundry detergent.  It was TIME FOR ME to try it and I really wanted Ethne along to walk me through the process.

Honestly it was super simple.  Remember, you can read the step-by-step instructions here.

I do have a mini food processor that we used to chop up the soap; however at the time, we could NOT figure out how to grate the soap in the food processor.  I figured it out after this photo was taken.

I do have a few additional tips for you.  If you do not want any leftover product then purchase two boxes of Arm and Hammer Super Washing Soda, one box of Mule Team Borax, and six bars of Fels Naptha Soap.  I was able to purchase all items at my local Wal-Mart store.  

In addition, I purchased this cute glass container at Wal-Mart for $9.00.

This detergent needs a little more mixing!
Steve likes the idea of homemade laundry detergent, but it cheaper?  According to other blogs I have read, it averages around .07/load.  That seems cheaper--right?  Honestly, this detergent should last me FOREVER!

I made my own laundry detergent about a month ago and I'm loving it!! I love the clean smell and know that I'm not using harsh chemicals. :-) It is lasting me a really long time! So nice!
