DIY laundry detergent?

I have seen lots of bloggers making their own laundry detergent lately and I am so intrigued. Has anyone ever tried it? I see two big benefits:

1.) Possible cost savings (I would need to do some investigating on this one)

2.) Opportunity to create super cute canisters for the detergent

Here are the ingredients:

After checking out Yellow Brick Home’s tutorial here, it seems pretty straightforward. I haven’t made the detergent yet (I need to track down this mystery Fels-Naptha product) but I couldn’t stop myself from putting my Tide detergent in a cute canister.

    Ooh, I love that chalkboard on the canister! Once you’ve tracked down the Fels Naptha (we found it in the grocery store, next to the regular bar soaps – aaaallll the way on the bottom shelf!), you’re going to love this stuff.

      Thanks Kim! I’m think I’m more excited about canister ideas than the actual soap, but I am looking forward to saving some moolah!
