If you plan to use Avon Bubble Bath for cleaning, be sure to pick a scent that is clear and not opaque. The ones that you cannot see through have moisturizers in them, that may cause streaks when cleaning. If you are looking for a rep, you can purchase AVON Bubble Bath from me!

Frugal Tip: Making Washing Soda

Frugal Tip: Making Washing Soda

I make my own laundry soap, both powder and liquid. Can't decide which I like more 🙂

I was getting ready to make a batch today and realized, I have no Washing Soda. So I made some.

It is different from Baking soda, BUT you can turn Baking Soda into Washing Soda very easily.

Pour Baking soda on a cookie sheet, and bake at 400° for 30 - 45 minutes. Voila, washing soda!

Here are my 2 recipes for DIY Laundry Soap:
(both contain Borax, trying a couple new formulas without and will share soon)

DIY Dishwasher Detergent

DIY Dishwasher Detergent image Just finished whipping up 72 Dishwasher Tabs or Scoops. I had left over Borax and Washing Soda from making my laundry detergent and figured I would try the Dishwasher Ones. These are so easy and quick to make. I used a scoop to make mine, but you can use ice cube trays as well, if you prefer the blocks. They dry fast and you can store in a container with tight fitting lid. image Here's how to make them: Recipe & Instructions ~ Ruth Ann The Moncton Coupon Lady

DIY Shower Cleaner

DIY Shower Cleaner

 

One of my least favourite chores is cleaning the shower. It often get's overlooked until it is bad enough to need a good scrub. I have tried the daily sprays and just cannot seem to get everyone in the house to use it, plus we end up inhaling the chemicals as we spray, and there are just too many chemicals around us these days. Many commercial cleaners are harsh or over scented. This recipe is my solution to help cut down on the chemicals floating in the air, and it is super simple and frugal!

In the past I have tried all kinds of soap scum removers, homemade solutions and store bought cleaners. This is my version of a cleaner that you often see using Dawn Dish Soap. I substituted Avon Bubble Bath in this version(I use it for so many other things too). It not only works fabulous, it smells amazing! If you are looking for a rep, you can purchase AVON Bubble Bath from me! Visit my Facebook Page for current brochures and to place an order.

Here's how to make and apply the cleaner.

Ingredients:

  • Baking Soda
  • Avon Bubble Bath *(or blue Dawn Dish soap)
  • Vinegar

Some recipes call for this to be mixed in a bottle or bucket, I am too lazy for that!

Sprinkle a good amount of baking soda on the bottom of your tub or shower. Next add a squirt (about 3-4 cap fulls) of bubble bath.

Next comes the fun part. Add enough vinegar to wet baking soda and make a foamy coating on the bottom of your shower.
image

Using a sponge, spread the paste-like, foamy mixture up the walls in a circular motion. You simply need to coat it all, no heavy scrubbing.  If you don't have enough, add more and mix.

I letit sit for an hour then using a wet cloth (old towel cut up) wipe down the walls. If you have a movable shower head, you can rinse it off by spraying down the shower.

You can use this cleaner and method as needed. This is a deep clean method.

*Avon Bubble Bath Tip: Always select a scent that is clear, not opaque. The opaque varieties contain oils that will leave smears. The clear ones leave a streak free finish!

DIY Laundry Detergent Liquid

While experimenting with Laundry soap, cost, ingredients, etc. I came to realize that although the Powdered version is very fast to mix up, and more compact to store, THIS recipe is much more Frugal.

This recipe is very Easy and the most Frugal so far!

The previous post for Powdered Laundry Detergent was much faster, but this one is worth the time, AND SAVES YOU EVEN MORE $$

What you will need:
 
  • 2 ltr boiling water
  • 1/2 bar Sunlight Soap Grated
  • 1/2 Cup Arm & Hammer Washing Soda (NOT Baking Soda)
  • 1/2 Cup Borax
  • 6 ltr warm water
  • Grater
  • Large Pot to hold 2 ltr water
  • large spoon to mix
  • Measuring cups/jug
  • Container/bucket for mixing to hold 8 ltrs +
  • containers to put liquid detergent in (old, washed containers from your current brands)

1. Grate the bar of soap (or use food processor). Place in pot with 2 ltr boiling water. Stir until soap dissolves, reduce heat with bubbles get foamy. It should not bubble much more than the picture below.


2. ADD Washing Soda, Borax and stir to dissolve.
3. Mix well and pour into container large bucket and add 6 ltrs warm water, stirring to mix.
4. Pour into jugs to store. Let cool then put lids on.

**Shake well before each use.


Use 1/2 cup per load. This recipe will yield approx. 64 loads of laundry.

 
I searched many online recipes and this is the one I like the most so far. You will find this to be the pretty standard recipe. Some add 2 ltr solution to jugs and top up with water, I prefer to mix all together then put in jugs. You have to have buckets large enough to do it this way though.
 
NOTE: You may need to add a little water if it becomes too solid. It will gel up a bit. SHAKE WELL before each use, then add water if needed.
 
***************************************************************
 
 
COST BREAK DOWN:
Sunlight soap 2pk $1.99 (used 1/2 bar) = $0.50
A&H Washing Soda $3.99 (used only 1/2 cup) = $0.13
Borax $5.58 (used only 1/2 cup) = $0.23
TOTAL COST 64 loads: $0.86


Works out to just $0.013 per load! JUST OVER A PENNY A LOAD!!!

Let's put this into perspective:
 
If you are doing 5 loads of laundry a week = 260 loads per year.
At $0.013 per load = ONLY $3.49 per year!!!
 
Let's DOUBLE the loads to 10/week = $6.98 per year
***************************************************************
Let's say using coupons and salesyou can get your favourite laundry detergent for
$2 / 32 loads = $0.06 per load
 
260 lds = $15.60
520 lds = $31.20
 
If you do not use coupons you could be paying much more.
Regular Retail (Walmart's current price)
 
  • Arm & Hammer 140 load = $13.97 = $0.10/ld ($26 for 260 ld/ per year)
  • Tide 96 loads = $19.94 =$0.21/ld  ($54 for 260 ld/ per year)
