Are you living a life where you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place — the rock being the high prices of natural laundry detergents, and the hard place being all the gross chemicals in commercial detergents? (Very specific, I know, but sometimes that happens in life…)
Well it’s time to free yourself from this conundrum and make your own natural laundry detergent!
Top three advantages of making your own detergent:
- WAY cheaper than regular detergent
- Free of nasty chemicals like fragrances, stabilizers, and fragrances
- It’s easy to make!
So here’s that recipe!
2 parts borax
2 parts washing soda
1 part grated soap
First, grate up the soap by hand or with a food processor. Mix it thoroughly with the powders, and step three, oh wait, that’s it, you’re done.
I usually do 1 bar of soap with 2 cups of borax and 2 cups of washing soda. The proportions work out roughly.
