Homemade Laundry Soap – $$ Saver!

Went to Target today to pick up my canvas bins to organize my storage closet and remembered to actually pick up the needed ingredients to make laundry soap.  Good thing I did because I’m almost completely out of detergent!

  • 76 ounces of Borax = $3.49
  • 4-pk Ivory Soap = $2.10 (on sale for $2.45 and used a $0.35/1 coupon)
  • 64 ounces Baking Soda = $2.16

Total = $7.75

Cost per load = $0.06 (Can’t beat that deal!!!)


  • 2 C. Borax
  • 2 C. Baking Soda
  • 1 bar Ivory Soap, finely grated





Mix together in a plastic container that has a good lid for storage.

(Love my little helper for this project!)





A HE washer only needs 1 T. of the mixture per load.  A regular top load washer would need 1/4 C.
