Homemade Laundry Detergent
Back again with another SUPER easy DIY replacement for those toxic household products! Today's recipe for powdered laundry detergent has just 3 ingredients. At this point, I honed in on the recipes for household/beauty products, so I make them in big batches so I don't have to make them as often. I will say that the only clothes I am washing right now are mine and my husband's. That being said, our clothes don't really get "dirty." We don't have kids, so I can't say for certain if it would be a great detergent for grass stains and other dirty spots. Our clothes always come out smelling great and clean like they do with any commercial detergent.
- 1 Bar of Dr. Bronner's soap* (Grated)- Grating the soap is the hardest part
- 4 Cups of Borax
- 4 Cups of Washing Soda
Combine all ingredients and mix well! I store ours in a large glass jar. Use 2-3 tablespoons per load. You can also add a few drops of tea tree oil if you feel like it's an extra stinky load! When adding the oil I start the washing machine, let it fill with some water, add the tea tree oil, let it mix in, and then add the clothes.
