Thrifty Thursday - Frugal Gift Tip

Sharing Your Powdered Laundry Detergent

You would be amazed at how many women are making a buck off of this homemade laundry detergent on Etsy. If you'd like to share your enthusiasm for the frugal lifestyle, share your homemade powdered laundry detergent, and include the recipe with the gift. Your detergent can be nicely bagged in either a brown or white decorated paper bag.

Powdered Laundry Detergent
1 Cup Grated Fels Naptha Soap
1/2 Cup Washing Soda
1/2 Cup Borax

For light load, use 1 tablespoon. For heavy or heavily soiled load, use 2 tablespoons.

1. If budget allows, throw in some cloth napkins, utility towels, bath towels, hand towels, or washcloths.
2. Make a little book with a variety of laundry tips, tricks, and homemade recipes.
