Homemade Laundry Detergent!

in dtube •  6 months ago


Hey Ya'll!

This is my go-to detergent for the time being. I haven't found anything I like better.
Here it is!
1/2 Box Super Washing Soda
1/2 Box or 3-4 cups of Baking Soda
1/2 Container of Oxi-Clean Free
2 bars of shredded Dr. Bronner's Lavender Soap

Mix it all together and Wa La! This makes about a gallon and a half of detergent. Hope you Enjoy!

I use the baking soda for everything too, I have the same problem measuring stuff, it's annoying haha. I love your DIYs what a good idea to put it in the food processor! Watch your fingers! I always wondered how to do that.

I realized after I did it it looks like I'm going to chop my fingers off lol I don't know why I didn't use the thing it came with to push it down. Oops! 😬

I wonder if this would work in a high efficiency washing machine? I used to just use baking soda but wasn't sure if it would wreck the machine so now I use nothing😭 Lol I do hang all my clothes outside and I feel that the fresh air and sunshine disinfects and cleans clothes like nothing else!

Yes it does! That's what I have!

howdy @thefarmerswife!! dang you guys make EVERYTHING don't you?
you don't need no stores! just go to town a couple times a year. lol.

Thanks! Not everything....but I'm overly aware what we put in and on us. The skin is the largest organ and there's so much crap out there. Hoping it's nothing I do that causes my kiddos any harm. Thanks for your support!

Gracias! Glad you liked it!

Nice! I used Charlie's for a while,but I have a daughter with a special diet that requires extra fat, so lots of grass fed butter & coconut oil leads to lots of stains. Charlie's didn't cut it and I sadly went back to All Free & Clear, which isn't really free or clear, but that's another post. You guys are fans of butter too, right? What do you use for the oil stains?

·

We are fans of butter and coconut oil but all my wee ones are 5 and up so I don't have the stains. But I do have mud and manure! I have a stain remover I made. Peroxide, Castile soap, lemon EO
