Homemade Laundry Detergent Recipe

You can make almost 5 litres of liquid laundry detergent with this laundry detergent recipe for only £1.50!

 

Ingredients:

2 x Dove Soap Bars

500g Soda Crystals

4.5 litres water

 

Method:

This mixture will rise as it boils so you will need to use a very large pan.

Grate the soap bars and place into a heavy-based, large pan.

Cover the grated soap with water and stir over a medium heat until melted.

Add 4.5 litres of boiling water to the mixture.

Add soda crystals and continue to stir until the mixture thickens..

Once thickened, stop stirring and allow the mixture to rest and cool.

Once cooled you can transfer to a clearly labelled and lidded container.

Use one cupful in place of your washing powder for every load.

Homemade Glass Cleaner Recipe

One 50 pence bottle of distilled vinegar makes almost four batches of this glass cleaning mixture, meaning each batch costs little over 12 pence a bottle. What’s more, it works just as well as anything you could buy from the shop… naturally!

 

Ingredients:

150ml Distilled White Vinegar

350ml cold water

 

Method:

Pour the vinegar into a 500ml trigger spray bottle. Amazon sell a selection very cheaply. Make sure the bottle is labelled clearly and stored out of the reach of children.

Add 350ml cold water.

Shake!

Use as normal.

Add a drop or two of essential lavender oil if you want to mask the vinegar smell, but rest assured that the smell disappears once the vinegar dries anyway.
