Homemade Laundry Detergent

Homemade Powder Laundry Detergent

I have always made laundry detergent in liquid form. But this time around, I decided to make powder laundry detergent. Making powder laundry detergent is much easier and faster than liquid.

Material needed:
2 cups Borax
2 cups Arm and Hammer Super Washing Soda
1 bar Fels-Naptha Soap


Step 1
Grate the Fels-Naptha Soap. If you want a finer soap you can place the Fels-Naptha Soap in a food processor. I did not have food processor so I just grated my soap. 


Step 2
You need 2 cups of Borax. I would recommend placing the 2 cups in a bowl and making sure all the clumps are broken up. If your detergent has clumps you will find those clumps at the bottom of your washing machine.
Tip: Borax neutralizes odor. Sometimes I added more Borax if the articles being washed have a very strong odor.



Step 3
Add 2 cups of Arm and Hammer Super Washing Soda



Once you add the Arm and Hammer your powder laundry detergent is complete. Most directions that I have read says it takes 2 table spoons per wash. Since all washing machines are different sizes.I would recommend you experiment with the amount and find the amount that you need for your washing machine Since this laundry detergent is a low sud detergent, you can also use this in front loader washing machines too.
