My husband has a moving business, and while he enjoys being his own boss, he also loves to actually go out and work. It is the strangest thing for me. This means pairs of sweaty shirts and shorts by the hour. I also have 3 children who run a muck in the house. With their everyday clothing, the two older children also do soccer, baseball, and ballet. My youngest changes her clothes literally, every 30 minutes, from tutu’s to pants, to back to pajamas. One little spill ruins her entire outfit. She turns 3 next month.
So long story short, we go through laundry detergent like it is no one’s business! At least a couple of loads a day. Plus our stuff needs to be strong enough for the dirtiest of clothes, but gentle enough for the softest of skins. Most importantly, easy enough on our poor wallets.
After doing plenty of skimming on Pinterest, I came across a Laundry Detergent Recipe from LizMarieBlog.com. Her blog is amazing and briefly inspired me to re-do furniture. That was until I found out I was no good at it!
I took her laundry recipe, but just made a couple of tweaks to it, adding more oxi clean and using a natural essential oil soap.
