Making your own detergents and save hundreds of dollars per year.
Dish Detergent: Arm and Hammer washing soda, Borax, salt, 3 drops of Dawn, and citric acid. You can also add vinegar to the rinsing agent compartment for those hard water spots. Laundry soap: Borax and washing soda again; 5 drops of dawn, grated Naptha laundry soap bar, (I also add some of the generic oxy clean from the dollar tree) I have started doing this only this year and the supplies cost me around $50 however I made about 40 gallons of laundry detergent and 20 of dishwasher detergent. It should last me about 6-8 months!!!
