Laundry…my arch nemesis! Just when I think I have won, I look at my family and see they are fully dressed.😩 In no time at all, our hampers once again have dirty clothes in them and the battle starts again. As a mom of four sweethearts, it is 100% realistic to do seven loads of laundry each week. Yes, that is one load every day…365 loads each year!
Laundry is definitely an area that I can save money. If I were to buy basic Tide liquid laundry detergent, I would spend about 18¢ per load. Instead, I have created my own Homemade Liquid Laundry Detergent at just 3¢ per load. It will leave your clothes clean and smelling fresh while saving you money. You can’t go wrong with that!
Check out my simple tutorial below and prepare to be amazed!
