my own cloth diaper detergent! I'm excited. I have been buying a homeade detergent called Crunchy Clean but I have decided that I'm going to start making my own. I'm also going to make my own regular laundry detergent. Maybe I will try to sell it on Etsy but there is a lot of detergents on there already.

You basically just need washing soda, borax, and bar soap.

It's sodium bicarbonate, sodium carbonate, and oxygen cleaner. I will most likely add some essential oils too.

That's very cool!!!!

I use sodium bicarbonate (Arm & Hammer Bicarbonate Soda) in my laundry, to mop and to clean my sinks, stove, fridge, etc. I also use vinegar when I'm mopping.

That's neat! I made a batch a while ago along with vinegar fabric softener. It works fine so far and costs just pennies!

I made a big batch of the laundry detergent. So far it works well. Everything comes out smelling and looking clean. I have not made the diaper detergent yet because we still have some left.

I would love to hear how you do a diaper detergent with simple ingredients (this may help me a TON while overseas and needing some!).

That sounds like fun! Is it inexpensive to do? I've thought about doing that once I'm a SAHM.
