How to Make Super-Concentrated Laundry Detergent at Home
Have you seen the cost of laundry detergent at the store? It can cost a small fortune for a SMALL jug that gets you 24 loads. If you have kids, 24 loads won’t last at all. Making concentrated laundry detergent at home is easy and it saves you money, two that everyone loves!
This detergent costs around $2.50 to $3 to make, depending on the cost of the ingredients at your store. If you use ¼ cup per load, you should get around 64 loads, which means each load costs $0.04! That’s insanely cheap and frugal!
To make this laundry detergent, you first need to find a gallon-sized container or two half-gallon containers. Juice jugs work, or you might find some half-gallon glass jars. Remember that this detergent is CONCENTRATED, so you need to use less of it than you would with store-bought detergent.
Most people will notice that this detergent produces very little to no suds. It works fine in front-loading, high-efficiency washers.
