I’m a cleaning fan – I make my own laundry detergent when I run out using Walmart items & it costs just 9 cents per load

LAUNDRY detergent is notoriously expensive, and unfortunately, we can't go without it.

Luckily, there's a way to make detergent on the cheap with just a few items from Walmart.


A cleaning fan who loves a bargain named Bethany shared her secret on how to make your own laundry detergent while on a budget.

In a video, Bethany took to the aisles of Walmart and said: "I save a lot on laundry detergent.

"Let's make our own for pennies on the dollar, you guys."

She first said to grab a bar of Fels Naptha soap, which will only cost you $1.

Then, get a box of Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda for $4.17.

Lastly, Bethany grabbed a box of Borax for $4.97.

"Here's a tip: You're only going to be using one cup from the Borax and one cup from the Arm & Hammer, so if you want to make multiple loads, grab more of [Fels Naptha]," Bethany added.

Bethany then went home to start making her own laundry detergent.

To make a double batch, she first grated two of the Fels Naptha soap bars using an attachment on her food processor.

Then, she added two cups of the Arm & Hammer washing soda, two cups of Borax, and the two grated Fels Naptha bars to a large glass jar.

Bethany then gave the mixture a good stir, and voila! She had her very own laundry detergent.

She also went the extra mile and did the math to find out how much each load of laundry would cost.

If you used two tablespoons of Bethany's DIY detergent for each load, it totals an impressive nine cents per load.

Plus, a double batch of Bethany's detergent makes six cups total, which means you should be able to do a whopping 48 loads of laundry, all at just nine cents per load.

Several people took to the comments section to support Bethany's cheap detergent recipe.

One wrote: "THIS IS ALL I USE!!! AND DON'T NEED FABRIC SOFTENER ANYMORE."

Another added: "Been making this for years!

"I don’t have any build-up or any issues with my washer. I also add vinegar to the load."

"She’s right! Game changer," a third comment read.

However, Bethany's detergent has some people skeptical.

One warned: "This is soap, not detergent. There is a difference.

"Modern washers require modern detergent. Soap can build up on clothes and make them flammable."
