Karen MAKES her own laundry soap. I’ve tried her recipe and it’s great! Not only is it fragrance-free, it’s REALLY cheap. I’m talking about $.02 per load! Compared with the Dreft brand I’ve been using for Baby, we save about $.62 per load. Assuming 300 loads a year, we save $15.44 per month or $185.38 per year. Dreft costs about $.64 per load, assuming about 25 loads per 100 fl. oz. There is some debate here but it wouldn’t make much difference. The Deft bottle indicates 64 loads per 100 fl. oz., but that’s wishful thinking in my opinion. You can do your own math based on your current laundry product and number of loads. Karen’s laundry soap costs about $2.13 per 3 gallon batch. That’s probably underestimating the amount you get in a batch, but I’ll stick to the conservative figures. If you come up with different figures, please let me know! Either way, I’ll bet you’ll save! The benefits are that I KNOW what is in my laundry soap (no unknown chemicals); I don’t have to throw away laundry bottles; and I save money. Yippee!
