I am so glad to find this recipe on several other blogs. Making my own laundry soap is incredibly easy. I use an electric cheese grater to grate the soap. It only takes a few minutes too. My very first time making this, I grated the soap by hand and it took forever!
Here are two recipes for homemade laundry soap! The first one is a dry recipe. The second recipe is a liquid recipe! You are more than welcomed to create your own way of making your laundry soap.
I like easy recipes and both are incredibly easy.
Homemade Laundry Soap (dry)
1 cup Borax
1 cup Washing Soda
Directions: Grate the soap with a cheese grater food processor. Place all ingredients in an airtight container and shake. (can use a yogurt container)
Use 1 tablespoon per load, 2 tablespoons for heavily soiled loads.
Homemade Laundry Soap (liquid)
1/2 cup 20 Mule Team Borax
1/2 cup Arm and Hammer Super Washing Soda
4 quart pot
1 measuring cup
Grate 1/2 of the bar of Dr. Bronner’s Pure Castile Peppermint Soap. Bring 4 cups of water to a boil and stir in the grated soap until dissolved. Add the 1/2 cup washing soap and 1/2 cup borax and stir until dissolved.
Fill a container with 1 1/2 gallons of water. Pour the soap mixture into the water and stir until combined. Set aside undisturbed for 24 hours.
The resulting mixture may be thick, but after a stir it’s ready for use!
UPDATE: Since I still use this recipe, I have created my own liquid laundry soap from my powder recipe. I make it in small batches and it can easily last for months. Good luck and have fun with this.
Ever since I have been using my homemade laundry soap, our clothes last longer in that they do not fade! Our dark clothes stay dark. My denim jeans really do not fade either.
