Sooo, I’m very close to the end of my supply of homemade laundry detergent.
Yes, the one I told you that would last a year. I did give away two mason jars of my stash so I guestimate that I probably would have made it to September, which would have given me about 7 months. And I probably used more per load than I needed to. I used just about two scoops per load, but I’ve read that you could use between 1-2 scoops…so that said, that would give me enough to finish out the year had I done only 1 scoop per load.
But I will say that it has proven to work great. I’m not sure if I was imagining things, but it seemed like my clothes were extra soft when I used this homemade laundry detergent. I have to admit that I did break down and buy a bottle of detergent as back up when I run out because although it really doesn’t take long to make, my time has been super limited these days. It’s just the shredding of the bar soap that’s a time sucker for me because I don’t have the right tools to make it quick. I will be making another batch soon though. I may even get crazy and add a little essential oil for a stronger scent, not sure yet.
Just wanted to give you a heads up so you all wouldn’t be after me if your detergent didn’t last you an entire year.
