Store bought laundry detergent is not only expensive but full of chemicals. Cost effective Know exactly what you are washing your clothes in.
Combine grated bar soap, water, washing soda, and borax. Heat until well combined Let sit for 24 hours Recipe by David Fisher about.com
Stain nine white towels, three each of pureed carrots, dirt, and pureed prunes. Wash first set with just water and set as control group. Wash second set with 1/8 cup of Tide. Wash third set with 1/8 cup of homemade laundry detergent.
Control group as expected, water is not a great stain remover. Tide was a great stain remover for dirt and prunes, but not carrots. Homemade laundry detergent was a good stain remover for dirt, but left a small amount of prune, and a large amount of the carrot stain.
Use different store bought detergents Wash on different cycles Use different proportions of ingredients Try different stains
Carrots stain everything Even though the homemade laundry detergent wasn’t as effective at removing stains as Tide, it would be a great detergent to use on lightly soiled loads. Cost effective
