I saw a recipe for home made laundry detergent in ‘Your Home’ magazine from May, so I thought I’d have a go and share it with you!

Shopping List
1 bar cheap soap 125g (eg. Imperial Leather)
Grater
Glass Jar
250g Borax substitute (£ shop should have some )
250g Soda Crystals
Kitchen Scales
Spoon or scoop
Label or gift tag
Pen

1. Grate the soap as fine as possible. I used Imperial Leather for sensitive skin. You want a cheap soap rather than a Soap Cabin bar! Pour into the jar.

2. Weigh out the borax and soda crystals. It should be 2 parts borax and 2 parts soda crystals for every 1 part soap. Add to the jar and mix well.

3. Label the jar and enjoy! You might want to add a few drops of essential oil to add scent. I didn’t because the soap was already scented.
