Homemade Laundry Detergent

IMG_5324

Not long after moving to our farm house, I began searching for cleaning products that would not damage our ground water.

We are on a well and septic system, so making sure that we do not add toxic chemicals to our water is important.

As an avid Pinterest user,

I came across many different websites for recipes.

Not sure how well DIY laundry detergent would work,

I was a little leery about trying it.

However, once I made it and used it the first time,

 I was pleasantly surprised!

I have been making it for almost 2 years

and I have had very good results with.

Since I started using essential oils the beginning of this year,

 I started adding a few drops of

different oils to the batch when I make it.

I am extremely happy with the cost savings of DIY detergent as well!

1 box of Borax $3.99

1 Box of Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda $3.99

2 Bars of Fels-Naptha Soap $1.49

10 drops of your favorite essential oil under $1.00

Total Price $10.96 before tax!

Not to shabby for ingredients that will make  more than 2 batches of laundry detergent that will last over 2 months for 2 people.

DIY Laundry Detergent Recipe

1 Cup of Borax

1 Cup of Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda

1 Bar of Fels-Naptha Soap – grated

10 drops of your favorite essential oil

 I use Thieves or Purification Blends

Place all ingredients except for essential oil in a blender or ninja type blender with lid and pulse until incorporated

Once incorporated, transfer to storage container

and add essential oil drops

Allow several hours or overnight for essential oils to

incorporate into detergent before use.

Note – I have started adding the essential oil drops to the washing soda a day or two prior to making detergent to avoid having to wait for the oils to incorporate into mixture

I use 1/8 of a cup per load of laundry

This recipe makes enough detergent for 2 people

for over a months worth of laundry!

There you have it!

Homemade Powdered Laundry Detergent that is MUCH cheaper than pre made detergent and Much safer for the environment!

I hope you will give this a try!

Let me know if you have any questions or if you would like more information on the essential oils that I use.

Peace, Love, & Hugs!
