Save Money with These 14 Homemade Laundry Detergent, Static, and Stain Cleaners

When I bought my High Efficiency (HE) washing machine I had a heck of a time finding a HE laundry detergent that didn’t make me itch, cleaned our clothes, AND didn’t make the washer stink. At the time I couldn’t find a HE laundry detergent that accomplished all three important tasks and ended up making my own powdered laundry detergent. Problem solved.  I had leftover detergent from the old washing machine that let me tell you,it  is NOT a great idea to use in a HE washing machine! However, that liquid laundry detergent is great for pretreating laundry stains so it didn’t go to waste.  Slowly but surely I started making other laundry cleaning supplies like laundry stain spray, static cling fighter, wrinkle releaser, dryer sheets and wool wash save time (it takes me less than 15 minutes to make this stuff) and money. It also cuts down on our household waste too. High fives all around!  Pin this list of ideas to your Pinterest boards for later! Share it with your friends Laundry S
