So my sister actually introduced me to this and I've seen numerous pinterest pins and blog posts using the same recipe. You can make liquid or powder. I have never tried the liquid but love the powder and the best part is that it lasts me over 6 months!
I bought all my ingredients at Walmart in the laundry soap isle. I wish I could say I was an all natural earthy mom. I LOVED Tide and Gain but grew tired of spending so much money on it just weekly. I spend under $10 on all the products and easily have enough to last me over 6 months.
1 box of Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda
1 box of Borax
1 Fels-Naptha Bar of soap.
I added equal amounts of the super washing soda and borax into a little plastic tub with a lid. I then grated my soap bar and mixed it into the tub as well. I've notice it does wonders on the girls clothes from daycare and I only need to use 1-2 Tablespoons per load (I was skeptical of this small amount at first). The first time I made this I added the downy unstoppables into the tub as well but noticed that the color and smell seemed to fade away from them. So I still buy my liquid downy softener but the small bottle still can last me a month.
