Fels Naptha - Purex Insiders Giveaway

I love making my own laundry detergent. However when I get a good deal on laundry soap I don't see the point. However I always keep the ingredients in just in case,  mainly because deep down I am a little bit of a prepper.

I have tried the homemade liquid detergent but to be honest it is just too gloppy for me, and so decided I had to find a better way.

After a little research I found a cool website and blogged about their recipe here.

You basically need 3 ingredients so it's really easy to keep the supplies at hand.

1. Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda
2. Borax
3. Purex Fels- Naptha soap

I have heard that you can make laundry soap with different bars of soap but personally I think the Fels-Naptha has the best results with stain removal. It really works great and even my majorly fussy ex-Tide loving husband loves the results. I have even used the bar for stain removal when I had enough of my Purex tabs and didn't need to make soap. (As a work from home, home-school mom I have to pick and choose sometimes.)

Have I mentioned the smell... I love the smell of the Purex Fels-Naptha and so does Little J our resident smell expert. He is forever saying..."I smell something..." the big kids sometimes call him 'sniffer' because well, if there is a new smell, he will definitely be the first one to smell it.

There are so many uses for this soap from washing clothes to dishes and just about everything in-between.

Don't just take my word for it. I have a coupon for a free bar of Fels-Naptha for one of my readers.
