I’ve been very hesitant to make my own laundry soap although I have always wanted to. I was scared because I have a nice HE washer and didn’t want to ruin it. I know you have to use special laundry detergent in those babies and I was never sure if the homemade stuff would work. Well, the reason you use special soap is because you need less suds. Somewhere we all thought that suds equals cleaner things, but really it is just extra stuff that’s added. If you go back to basics then you lose the extra and your laundry will look and feel amazing!
- 2 cups Borax
- 2 cups Baking Washing Soda
- 2 cups Baking Soda
- 1-2 cups Downy Unstopables for scent
- 1 bar of Fels Napha, grated
- 2 cups Oxi Clean
- Grate the Fels Napha into a large mixing bowl. Add in all other ingredients and stir together until well mixed.
- Use 1-2 Tablespoons per load.
I’ve been super impressed with this recipe. Everything comes out smelling, feeling, and looking great. It’s even taken that mildew smell out of my towels. You’re gonna love it too.
OH, and did I mention that you’re gonna save money? Well, you are! It’s quick and easy to make, and my girls love to help. But don’t take my word for it. Run and grab the supplies and let me know what you think. (All products can be purchased at Wal-Mart type stores. I did buy a large bag of Baking Soda at Sams Club. Hopefully that helps!)Pin It
