A cost-effective alternative to conventional laundry detergents can be made with the following ingredients:
Equal parts bicarb soda, washing soda and soap flakes.
White vinegar can also be added to act as a fabric softener and deodoriser.
We add a couple of drops of tea tree oil to kill off any dust mites and leave a fresh smell. You could use your favourite essential oil instead.
