Time to Make Detergent!

On April 2, 2010, the hubby and I made laundry detergent (you can see the directions and pics of us doing that HERE)...we are down to our last half gallon so we had to make more today.

I quite enjoy only having to purchase laundry detergent twice a year (well about that anyway) and Kevin figured it out that it only costs us about $4 and some change to make 10 gallons. That does not include the bucket which we bought for about $5 and is reusable. So less than $5 for laundry detergent every few months is not a bad deal!!

I am really going to have to try this. I just bought detergent and softener, but once that's gone I want to try this!

Wow!! Do you mind if i ask about how much time it takes? I realize it has to sit overnight...but otherwise how much time? And how much did it cost to get it started...bucket and stuff included?!
I just love this idea but am really afraid i would mess it up! How long have you done this?!
