I have been making my own laundry soap for years now. I always get asked for the recipe so I decided to post it. Here are the ingredients you need:
One of the things to note when getting your ingredients is that Arm & Hammer Super washing soda is different from Arm & Hammer laundry detergent. Make sure you grab the correct box.
These ingredients minus the fels naptha bar soap can last me well over a year. When I run out of laundry detergent, I just have to buy a new fels naptha bar. It costs $1. Not bad at all.
Homeade laundry detergent recipe:
1 cup Arm & Hammer Super washing soda
1 cup Borax
1 cup baking soda
1 fels naptha bar
I use an old laundry detergent bucket and keep filling it back up. One of these days I will make something cute but for now this works.
Measure and add the first 3 ingredients
Grate the fels naptha bar
Mix it all together and tada, you are done.
Use 1 TBS for normal loads. 2 TBS for extra dirty loads.
I have not noticed a difference from this recipe and the pricey detergent I used to buy. They both clean well. Let me know if you make some.
Thanks for reading
