Laundry Detergent Recipe

I have been wanting to make my own laundry detergent for about a year. I bought Borax a few months ago and it has just been sitting in my laundry room. Last week I finally got the rest of my ingredients and made my laundry detergent. I have used it for a few loads of laundry and I love it!

The recipe is:

1 cup of Borax

1 cup washing soda

2 cups of shredded bar soap

(I like Dr Bronners Peppermint Pure Castile Soap)

You use 2 tbsp per load.

You can make liquid detergent by adding the ingredients to 2 gallons of boiling water.


Our favorite store bought detergent is Method.
