Laundry soap was another area I have been looking to change up; from buying store bought to making my own. I have tried a couple different recipes and after a few months of use I have found this one to be faithful and true. Not only is it super easy to make it, it is very cost effective and WORKS SO WELL!
I have tried it on my toughest jobs (like dried on blueberry stains!) and each time the boys clothes come out clean and fresh.
What you need:
- 3 Tbsps Borax
- 3 Tbsps Washing Soda
- 2 Tbsps Blue Dawn Dish Soap
- 2 Cups Hot Water
- One Gallon Container
This recipe multiplies well. I made 1.75 gallons (the size of the store bought detergent dispenser) using this conversion which is slightly more concentrated, so you can tweak it to your needs:
- 1/2 cup Borax
- 1/2 cup Washing Soda
- 1/2 cup Blue Dawn
As I go about detoxifying my home I am planning on making this recipe with Pure Castile soap in replace of the Dawn, but for now this works great and saves a lot of money!
Until Next Time, enjoy saving some time and money and getting clean clothes!
