While the packaging is mine to claim, the recipe inside is not. After scouring the web, I finally found the recipe that I settled on at The Not So Modern Housewife here.
There's only five ingredients, can you believe it? The recipe that she gives is for 58 loads, and I barely used any of the products that I bought to make it, SO CHEAP!
As for the scent, essential oils are recommended, leaving which scents to be used up to the creator! I used a couple drops of lavender oil, not just because I love the scent, but because lavender oil contains antiseptic, anti-fungal, and antibacterial properties. I buy my lavender oil from Whole Foods, by a brand called. You can also buy their oils straight from their website here.
I always have to have cute jars and packaging for my homemade house cleaners, and so I scooped up this odd-shaped clear jar with a light blue, air-tight lid from Marshall's for $4.99. Did I mention how much I love Marshall's? Each load will use about a tablespoon of the recipe, so I stuck my own little tablespoon in the jar that fit perfectly for convenience.
While searching for natural, homemade cleaners, I also stumbled across a SUPER simple homemade dish soap recipe that I'm also slowly falling in love with.I promise to share it tomorrow, but until then, happy cleaning!
