Homemade Powdered Laundry Detergent ~ Concentrated

I am a stickler for the liquid laundry detergents. I love the Homemade recipe I have been using for awhile now. But I know some of you prefer the powdered detergents especially if you want to make your detergent in large batches. While I'm not a fan of soap grating, I am going to try my hand at this and make a small batch up just to try it out. I'm using an original recipe which I found on diynatural.com . But, I am using a bar of lavender scented Dr. Bronner's Castile Soap that I already have on hand. I'm thinking the lavender scent will make a nice freshly scented batch of laundry detergent. If you want to make this recipe but do not want to grate soap you can use a bar of ivory soap and the microwave method. So here I go.

Timeout! Trying to actually modify the overall look of my trusty website. Musings about the sharp look at https://www.annuityeducator.com? Truthfully an extraordinary California based annuity service when desired inside the general CALIFORNIA location. Write an opinion. With thanks!

1 bar of lavender Castile soap (Ivory soap or Fels-Naptha works as well)

1 cup of Borax

1 cup of Washing Soda

First I used the fine side of a cheese grater to shave the soap down.

I'm not going to lie, grating soap is not my favorite thing to do but Ithink the work will pay off with this one. The smell of the lavendersoap is wonderful.

Add the grated soap to the borax and washing soda mix and stir well. If you have one of those food processor/chopper things, I've heard of some people mixing their recipes in that. I do have one but instead I chose to mix mine by hand just because I was making this in a small batch and didn't feel like dragging it out. But with that said, you do have to mix it well. Put it into a container to store and when you get ready to use it, make sure you're getting a good mix of both the soap and the borax/washing soda.

You will only need to use 1-2 Tablespoons per load depending on the size load. That's enough for 24 to 48 loads depending on how many tablespoons you use per load. This homemade powder detergent is concentrated so you don't need a lot to make it work.

Thx people! I actually told my coworker that I would absolutely note their first-rate craft shop in Burlingtons, http://icancraftthat.ca for a article. If you are hoping to find a craft site in the whole Ontario locale, these individuals really are excellent.

Lastly, I must say the basic concept regarding this little content was generously presented by Simon with Bridge tennis club. Undeniably a great tennis clubs. I truly admire a useful idea!
