And you know me, I’m all about easy and efficient. I just don’t have time to make Homemade Liquid Laundry Soap. Plus, it’s messy. Yep, I don’t need that either. If you’ve been tempted to try your hand at making your own laundry soap, here’s an easy recipe for you. For me, it’s a great bridge between my last super cheap laundry detergent deal and the next one if I’m running low.
- 1 Cup Ivory Soap Flakes
- 1/2 Cup Borax
- 1/2 Cup Washing Soda (Arm & Hammer)
- Grate a bar of Ivory Soap with your handy dandy grater or use a food processor. Measure out 1 cup of soap flakes. Add 1/2 cup borax. Add 1/2 cup Arm & Hammer washing soda. Mix well.
Directions for use: Use 1 tablespoon per normal wash load in standard washing machine. Use 2 teaspoons for High Efficiency washing machines.
Heavily Soiled: Use 1 tablespoon + 1 tsp in standard washing machine Use 1 tablespoon for High Efficiency washing machines

Amazon Program Information Refresher
Understanding these Amazon programs can be confusing, so I though it might be nice to break them down a bit for you.
Some items are available through the Subscribe & Save program. What that means is that you select shipments at regular intervals (every 1-6 months) and you’ll receive the item at the 5% discounted price when you subscribe to 4 items or less. Subscribe to 5 or more items, and you’ll receive a 15% discount on each of your subscription items. Additionally, all subscriptions ship free. If you don’t want to bother with regular shipments (the prices do fluctuate), sign up to receive the shipment you want and cancel (with no penalty) when you’ve received your order. You can cancel via the Your Account dropdown menu tab “Your Subscribe & Save Items.” Canceling is very easy to do.
Alternatively, all items can be shipped free with Amazon Prime as well. You can sign up for a free trial membership and cancel before you are charged the annual fee, if you choose.
I am a member of the Amazon Mom program. Starting January 24, 2012, the maximum discount available on any purchase is 20%. This comes from the exclusive discount of 15% on select items (diapers, wipes, etc.) on top of a revised 5% Subscribe and Save discount vs. 15% for other purchased items i.e. grocery, etc. There are often coupons that are stackable with these discounts as well. Also, when you join Amazon Mom, you have the added bonus of Amazon Prime free Two-Day shipping for the first three months continued only by purchasing an Amazon Prime membership after the trial period ($79).
Amazon Student is free for, well, college students by providing a school and major. You get AmazonPrime free shipping for six months and free release date delivery on video games, DVD’s, books and more. You must have a .edu email address to confirm.
