Why are homemade remedies better than bought ones? Because you can choose the ingredients that are non-allergic and useful for health and you can save some money making them. Wanna save some money and make a good laundry detergent? Here’s a recipe that works! You’ll need 1 cup washing soda (not baking soda!), 1 cup Borax, 1 bar of Fels Naptha laundry soap, grated. You can find all the ingredients online or in the nearest shop. Combine ingredients and store in an airtight container. Voila, you are done! You’ll need one spoonful per load, which is more than enough. Enjoy!
