Pinned & Tested

There are many things on Pinterest that I often wonder …if it really works? …is it really that easy? … can I do it? So I am starting a new reoccurring post of pinned and tested ideas from Pinterest.

There have been many claims on Pinterest about homemade laundry detergent that will last for a full year and only cost $20-$25. These Pins are TRUE! The detergent is so easy to make and all the ingredients can be found on the laundry and cleaning aisle of most grocery stores.

Mix all ingredients together in your container. Use a Sticky note or strip of masking tape to write when you start using the detergent, so you know how long it last.
