Why buy when you can DIY??? I am home today from work and realized that I have a lot of dirty laundry and am almost out of my detergent. Believe it or not but at the time of this blog post, I have not bought any prepared laundry detergent in the past 9 months. I had found instructions for homemade gel/liquid laundry detergent and have made some modifications. The original instructions produced a very thick clumpy product that worked fine but would occasionally leave a white residue on my laundry. Through trial and error, I have come up with a concoction that works great for me. It leaves my clothes very fresh smelling and clean! It is low sudsing and should work well in HE machines as it does not leave any residue behind. It will have some separation in the finished product but just give it a good shake and it is just fine.
