The Best Homemade Powder Laundry Detergent EVER

For the last year or so, I have been trying my hardest to live a greener lifestyle. It has been a slow process because I know if I throw everything on my family at once, hesitation will set in and nothing will be accomplished from it. To make this a successful transition, I will gladly take baby steps and reap the benefits of it all in the long run!

The first step in my process was to start using homemade laundry detergent. I’m saving my family money on something that is a staple in every home while keeping our clothes clean at the same time. It’s a WIN…WIN!
