Laundry detergent

Just mixed up another batch of laundry detergent. Big boxes of baking soda, washing soda, and borax cost me $10. My last batch lasted 7 months, would have lasted 8 or 9, I still had plenty left. Made a new batch so I could gift some.

Mix the dry ingredients, then add essential oil to scent as desired. Of course that increases the cost. I like lavender.

It's good to add some tea tree oil too, for its antiseptic properties (antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal).
