You could be that hero. Get your act together.
Let's refresh your memory with this link to my original post about making laundry detergent. At the bottom of that post I wrote that I wouldn't need to buy more supplies (not counting soap bars) for three years. And guess what ... I was RIGHT!
I just made my last batch of detergent this morning and I need to buy more washing soda. Just over 3 years from my original post! Hot diggity damn! Give me a Ph. D. in laundry detergent math!!!
The side note to this is that I had to buy store bought detergent a couple of months ago because life got busy and I couldn't go without clean clothes.
And all the pioneer women are giving me a side eye.
Life happens. However, my math was still pretty spot on. Over the past three years I've spent $13.50 (original amount on ingredients), $6 for soaps (thank you very much, dollar store) and $3.49 on store bought detergent. In total, I spent about $23 on laundry detergent. OVER THREE YEARS! That's under $8 a year!
