I’ve been making my own laundry detergent for years and this is one of my favorite and easiest recipes. If you are looking for a way to save some money or a more natural alternative to the chemical-laden conventional laundry detergents on the market give this recipe a try!
Note: This recipe is for the powder/dry version of the detergent which is what I prefer to use over liquid detergent.
I have used it in two houses one with soft water and another with hard water and did not have problems with it in either location. You don’t need to use much of it all and one batch will usually last us about 3-4 months!
Watch the full video for info on where to find the 3 ingredients you’ll need to make it. If you give the recipe a try leave me a comment and let me know in the description box below how it worked out for you.
There are a million different variations to laundry detergent recipes out there so do some research and try several out until you find the one that works for you! You can also use this recipe in conjunction with your oxygen base cleaner of choice (store-brand oxygen cleaner or Oxiclean, something like that, etc) to give your detergent a brightening boost. I also add a few drops of essential oils to give the it a refreshing scent- my favorite to use is lavender essential oil.
I hope you enjoy this DIY tutorial on how to make your own laundry detergent! Thanks for watching!
