Homemade Laundry Detergent

If you strive to be more self reliant, why not try making your own cleaners and detergents? Making your own laundry detergent is a great step towards self reliance. Using a few simple ingredients, you can make an excellent cleaner that smells and works great. Check out this video where I team up with my sister Tiffani make a home made laundry detergent for her to try!!!

When I was looking for the ingredients I found everything I needed in the laundry aisle at Walmart. Here is what you need:

1 Box of Super Washing Soda 3 lb. 7 oz. ($3.24)
1 Box of Borax 4 lbs 12 oz. size ($3.38)
1 Box of Pure Baking Soda 4 lb. ($2.12)
3 bars of Fels-Naptha 5.5 oz. ($0.97 x3)
1 container of Oxy-Clean 1.3 lb ($3.86)
Purex Crystals 28 oz. for scent ($5-$6)

I hope you like the video. Please leave your comments below and let me know how you enjoy this wonderful laundry detergent.


Gun safety and storage tip…

Here is a quick tip I picked up during my concealed handgun class.

My instructor for the class was Dan Blackford. Dan Blackford is a Nineteen year veteran of Law Enforcement. 17 of those years were in Federal Law Enforcement, 11 of which were with the U.S. Secret Service. He was a Firearms instructor at their academy in Maryland. I took my class with him at the Top Gun Range in Houston Texas.
