A few months ago, I decided to make my own laundry soap, but I wanted to wait to write about it until we’d had a few months to try it out.
Laundry Soap That Is Easy to Make
I followed this recipe at DIY Natural. The recipe calls for:
- 1 bar of Fels-Naptha soap,
- 1 cup of Borax, and
- 1 cup of washing soda
I found all of these ingredients in the laundry aisle of our local grocery store.
The recipe took less than 5 minutes to put together.
I use 1 TBSP per laundry load, and thus far, after 2.5 months of use, I have not yet run out of the first batch I made.
Laundry Soap That Works Great
When I mentioned on Facebook that I was making this, some people said that they had tried it but it couldn’t take out the smell of perspiration. I was a bit concerned about that, but now that we finally have the heat of summer, I can tell you that we have not had this problem.
This soap is all natural, perfume free, and works great. I highly recommend it if you want to save money on laundry.
Do you make your own laundry soap? If so, how do you like it? What recipe do you follow?
