Homemade DIY Laundry Booster

I mentioned making homemade laundry booster a few posts back and promised to share the recipe if anyone was interested. Quite a few people were intrigued, so here we are! This DIY homemade booster is simple to put together and smells great.

Borax, arm & hammer washing soda, and felts naptha soap

The ingredients are Borax Detergent Booster, Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda, and Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar & Stain Remover. They’re all very inexpensive and can even be purchased together as a kit on Amazon!
