For more than 3 years now now, I’ve been making and using my own non-toxic Laundry Detergent with this awesome recipe. It makes 8.5 pounds of Natural, yet Powerful, Laundry Detergent Powder, gets our clothes super clean and bright AND is safe and eco-friendly, especially for septic systems. One batch lasts me well over 6 months and it’s concentrated so one small scoop does a full load… plus it costs less than half the price of those toxic commercial detergents!!!
1 – 4 lb. Box Borax – Can be found in the Laundry Aisle
1 – 4 lb. Box Washing Soda – Can be found next to the Borax
2 Cups Baking Soda
1 to 2 tsp. Essential Oils – Patchouli, Orange, Lemon and/or Lavender
3 Bars of Hard Soap – grated (I use my own organic herb-infused soap bars)
