Benefits of handmade laundry detergent

Handmade all natural laundry detergent is far better for you and our environment. There are several, very simple and important benefits that we all should keep in mind.
The first and most noticeable is the savings. Comparing store bought commercial detergents and handmade laundry detergent the facts are very clear. A load using store bought commercially manufactured laundry detergent will cost you on average of 32 cents per load. On the other hand, a load using handmade laundry detergent will cost you 10 cents per load. That adds up considering the average laundry detergent costs about $30 for a container that says will give you enough detergent for 96 loads. The same amount of loads can be done with all natural laundry detergent for 1/3 of the cost. That is a huge savings.
When you start reading all the ingredients in commercially made laundry detergent you can start to feel like you have to be a scientist to understand what the ingredients are. There are numerous chemicals and additives that most of us can’t understand. Handmade laundry soap consists of 3 main ingredients and an essential or fragrance oil of your choosing. Borax, soap shavings, and washing soda are those 3 main ingredients. The best option for the soap shavings is to use all natural handmade soap and you have to remember to use washing soda, not baking soda. These ingredients are all safe for us and our environment too.
No matter how well you plan ahead, sometimes something slips through the cracks and you forget something you need. It has happened to all of us at one time or another. With handmade natural laundry detergent you have the ingredients right in your home and whenever you use the last of the detergent you have available, you don’t have to run to the store. You can make more right there in your home
