BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- There are some items you'd rather not live without, like laundry detergent.
To avoid paying so much for a product many people go through like water, a Georgia mom of 2 is sharing her homemade recipe.
"I thought it would be a pain to put together," Ashlei Boatright explains, "so I just did it. I made my own laundry detergent and it was easy. Didn't take long at all!"
For just 7-dollars, Ashlei stirred up 5 gallons of laundry detergent that's lasted her nearly a year.
Watch her story on GMJ this morning (Thursday 11/01/12) at 6:25 a.m. to see how Ashlei manages to find the time to make her home-made laundry with 4-year-old Jonah and 2-year-old Mason running around.
