Stretching your dollar takes a little extra effort but the savings can be huge.

Katina Robinson joined Greg Dee in the studio this morning to share some tips. Greg kicked things off by asking Katina about the $25 bottle of laundry detergent he bought recently and how he could save money while still getting clean clothes.

Katina showed him a recipe she uses of mixing the simple products that include washing soda and borax that she says costs only $8. See the recipe below.
