After recent appearances on WHO-TV and KCCI-TV in Des Moines, a number of Des Moines area residents have contacted me with lots of questions about The Simple Dollar and saving money. Many of these folks were really intrigued with the idea and the process of making your own homemade laundry detergent (based on one of my most popular posts) and several requested a “how to” video on the process.
The video below depicts the process of making homemade laundry detergent, much as shown in the earlier post, but with lots of additional little pointers along the way. This process took me about ten minutes all told and produced laundry detergent that saves about $8 per batch over Tide with Bleach Alternative. I’ve extensively annotated the video in various interesting and (sometimes) humorous ways.
Hope you enjoy the video! If you’d like to pass it along to your friends (or are viewing this by email or RSS and can’t see the embedded video above), here’s the URL:
If you found this video useful, I’d be happy to adapt other “how-to” posts into videos on occasion. Just let me know in the comments.
