5. Making your own laundry detergent

Last but not least on our list of frugal things that are not worth it is making your own laundry detergent. Now, we’ve spoken with some of our readers as well as some personal finance experts, and it seems that using homemade laundry detergent may be a good way to save a buck.

However, there are some things to consider, which may convince you that making your own laundry detergent is not really worth it. First, you have to ensure that your washing machine can handle DIY laundry detergent—not all machines can.
