My DH is determined that we use a commercial powdered detergent for the laundry, because he likes the smell… well, I like making my own powder from a frugal recipe that I found online. I eventually got tired of him saying “we should use tide or something” to me and figured out a way to compromise! I buy a box of commercial powder and then “dilute” it with baking soda and borax! Then I only use about 1/4 cup per load! I can tell him we use “Tide” and still save lots of money because one box lasts us months instead of a couple of weeks!
