My Most Popular Post and a Giveaway! CLOSED

February 11, 2013

This post was supposed to go up on Saturday but we’ve been a little sickly at our house. Thank you for your patience!

Last March I decided to do a few themed posts on things to make yourself that you would normally buy already made at the store. Little did I know, that when I posted this Laundry Detergent recipe, it would be my most popular non-food post. Crazy! Also, since first trying making my own laundry detergent a year ago, I have not used anything else since! It’s so easy and extremely budget friendly. Win!

Well, thanks to the people at Purex I’ve got 4 coupons for a free box of Borax to give away! Since Borax is one of the main components of making your own Laundry Detergent, you’ll want to win and then try it out.


Just leave your name and email in the comment section and I’ll pick 4 winners on Friday.

*And join me back next Monday when I’ll be giving away my new favorite cleaning product. You don’t want to miss it!

    I love Borax! I use it to make my own laundry soap as well (not with Fels Naptha, as I am allergic to it; I can’t even touch it). I have made my own laundry soap for my top-loading washer for 8 years now.

    I also use Borax to scrub my shower floor.

    I have so been thinking about making my own laundry detergent!

    Thank you for this chance! I love making my own detergent! I have four little girls, and this would be a blessing!
