Homemade laundry detergent is super easy to make. There is an active debate on whether or not borax is safe to use in cleaning products. This recipe does not contain borax, and you can mix and match the scents in your batches by changing the type of castile soap you use. Easy peasy, non toxic, better for you and your family and much less expensive than buying commercial brands comprised wholly of chemicals. You can get all of these ingredients at your local health food store, or order them online, they are readily available. Give this a try, and know you are doing a healthy thing for your family. Try it!!
