Day 111 of our Green Year: Making our own detergent

One of our readers, Paula, was nice enough to let us know about a great laundry detergent recipe that you can use when you don't want to use some of the other types of detergents, a few of which are used on animals when they are in the testing phase.

Paula said that the detergent has been used to clean everything from her husband's work clothes, to her baby's diapers and it works on everything in-between, making it a very cheap and effective laundry detergent.

To make the laundry soap, take the following ingredients:

One part grated soap bar
Two parts Borax
Two parts washing soda

Mix this together and you have some great laundry soap!

That is how easy it is to go green sometimes, you just need a bit of know-how to create some great laundry soap.

Do you have some tips of what we could do to go green? Let us know by dropping us a line!
