Awhile ago I told you all about my love for the laundry detergent called ECOS. Well, I’ve found something just as good and very very cheap.
For those of you who buy ECOS for about $18/6L, approx. 100 washes- imagine doing the same amount of laundry for $1.50.
All you need is:
1/3 cup washing soda
1/3 cup Borax
1/2 sunlight laundry bar
6 L of water
Grate 1/2 of a sunlight laundry bar into 1 L of boiling water. Stir until no lumps remain. Remove from heat. Stir in washing soda and Borax. Mix until well combined. Add remaining 5 L of water. Mix well.
Add 1/4 c. of this to each wash load.
Once my ECOS bottle was empty, I just reused it to hold this new washing liquid. Works great!
All these ingredients will cost approx. $10-$12 total but you should easily be able to make 4 jugs of detergent.
Let me know if you try it and what you think!
Thanks to my mom for sharing this recipe she found with me.
