Whether you've been making homemade laundry detergent for a while or have always wanted to, you will love this contest giveaway!
Stephanie the owner of Soaps Gone Buy has generously sponsored this contest by offering a Make Your Own Laundry Detergent Kit with PRE-GRATED Fels Naptha. One lucky Frugal Village reader will be randomly chosen to receive this awesome laundry kit. Making your own laundry detergent is a great way to save money.
The following items are included with this kit:
1-55 ounce box of Arm and Hammer Washing Soda
1-76 ounce box of 20 Mule Team Borax
2 pounds of GRATED Fels Naptha Heavy Duty Laundry Soap
1-5.5 ounce bar of Fels Naptha Heavy Duty Laundry Soap - Single Bar
No grating required. The kit contains everything but the water to make your own detergent. The kit contains enough product to make 10 batches (2 gallon or 64 loads recipe using 1/2 cup per load) of the liquid detergent with some remaining washing soda and borax to use around the house! Or enough to make 96 loads of dry. Comes complete with instructions on making dry or liquid versions.
I get asked ALL the time where to find Super Washing Soda. Soapsgonebuy.com is a great place to buy it. She also carries all the ingredients listed above to make laundry detergent. By the case prices, too. And spray bottles, Colgate Octagon, Boraxo soap, Soilove laundry treatment, Bar Keeper's friend, and I can't tell you how much I love Euro sponges and she carries those, too. I've mentioned them in previous columns. They are wonderful to use in the kitchen and make a great companion to micro fiber cloths.
A tip from Stephanie: The laundry detergent recipes will NOT make suds in your washer so don't be alarmed. Fels Naptha Soap is a pure soap and typically makes little or no suds in the water. This makes it perfect for use in the new HE washers as well as tradional washers. You will also notice the need to either reduce your laundry softener or in most cases you can even eliminate the use of softener completely.
Simply post a comment below that says "I want a Soapsgonebuy laundry detergent kit" and whatever else you'd like to add. I will randomly pick one winner. I'll announce the winner in two weeks. So deadline to enter will be 11:59 pm October 11th. One entry, per person. Please refer to our standard contest rules. As always, thank you for visiting Frugal Village. Special thank you to SoapsGonebuy.
