It seems as though the big news going around the prepping and DIY community is how to make your own laundry detergent. As a matter of fact, enter “DIY Laundry Detergent” in your search engine and you will come up with more than 1.8 million hits. As you start to click through the links, you will find dozens of variations on the recipe.
Well I am here to tell you that you can forget about grating bars of soap. In addition, you can forget about making up 5 gallon buckets filled with detergent and you can forget about cooking up a laundry detergent stew in a big kettle on the stove.
Who has time for that craziness? I sure don’t.
