Home Made Laundry Detergent Update- Almost 2 years later!

It's been almost 2 years!!! since I switched from my previous store brand laundry detergent ensemble to this home made and healthier version and you know what? We still haven't gone through all I made!

Amazing! As I started to write this I thought it was almost 1 year but no, it's almost 2 years now. How much have you spent on laundry detergent in the last 2 years? Because I spent only $33.20 making this and I said goodbye to harsh chemicals and irritants in the process.

Bet your laundry products look like this.

My original batch and "fabric softener"- I still have 3/4 of a pitcher left of the detergent.
This is what mine look like now.

Our clothes get clean, even better than soap because the baking soda and vinegar rinse cleans the soap residue out and cleans the washer in the process too. No more itchy skin from detergent in clothes, sheets or towels. And I never would have thought that vinegar could make our laundry so soft but it does and no perfumey smells!

So almost two years later, I can say I'm really happy with this little experiment. Next time I will order the white Zote to get away from the coloring altogether. It just takes a little pre planning for ordering.

There are lots of these recipes floating around Pinterest but this one really steps away from the chemical based products without sacrificing cleaning power.

So want the recipe?

Check out my old blog for all the details.

Try it out and let me know what you think.
