Everybody has to wash their clothes. There are so many different ideas about what is the best type of laundry detergent to use. We have been making our own for awhile and it seems to work quite well. We have tried a number of different recipes. One day, I didn’t have any borax so I thought it was time to look for another recipe. I found one from My Healthy Green Family that I really liked. Today, Hannah and I would like to share that with you.
Try it for yourself. I hope you will be just as pleased as we are. You can even make your own washing soda from baking soda, but I will tell you about that in another post.
