Is there a reason why your haven’t jumped on board the make your own laundry detergent train? Very cost-effective, easy to use, clothes come out clean.
This takes maybe ten minutes to make. Hardest part is grating the soap. Problem solved if you have a food processor. Just throw the soap in and shred. Now you have no excuses to not be making your own powdered laundry detergent.
I will be giving you a liquid detergent in another post if you prefer liquid over powdered.
PS: I have a High Energy washing machine and no it doesn’t damage it at all.
- 1 Bar Fels Naptha (or use Dr. Bonner’s, Kirk’s Castile, Zote) Grated
- 1 cup Borax
- 1 cup washing soda
- Grate your bar of soap and place it in a bowl.
- Add the borax and washing soda to the bowl.
Stir to mix well.
Store in any container you would like.
Use 1 Tablespoon for small loads.
Use 2-3 Tablespoons for large and heavily soiled loads.
