In a post last week, I talked about some changes that have been happening in our lives, and some things we were going to do to try and cut costs to accommodate those changes. One of them was to stop using commercial laundry detergent, and to make our own from a recipe found here. We did it, or should I say, Scott did. From the time he started grating the bar of sunlight soap, to the time when all of it was mixed and poured into the containers took 20 minutes. Twenty minutes, to save the cost of 3 containers of laundry detergent purchased at the stores. The bars of sunlight soap cost about $4.00 for 2 bars, and we only used one. So for maybe a total of $3 to $4 dollars, we have the equivalent of about $21.00 worth of laundry detergent. It is very concentrated, and uses only 1/4 to 1/3 cup per load. This was most definitely worth doing..
