Save money with homemade laundry detergent

Most apartments in Hoboken and Jersey City don’t have washing machines. Even without one, we all still need to wash our clothes! Here’s a simple recipe to create a large batch of inexpensive laundry detergent.

While borax is a naturally occurring mineral it is can cause skin irritation (and other ailments) in large doses. To make an eco-friendly cleaner replace the borax with 1/2 cup baking soda and 1/4 cup salt (and citric acid if you have hard water). This mix will last a very, very long time and it is substantially cheaper than a big-box brand.

1-2 tablespoons should do the trick.
