Make your own Homemade Laundry Soap

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This is so easy and so cheap to make, especially if you use your own homemade soap and make your own washing soda.

I am out of homemade soap (on my to do list with so many other things lol). When I make soap I make a batch plain lye soap that I use for laundry soap.


So I used fals nepta I just made a small batch because I like to use my home made soap so hopefully this will last until I can get some made.

Grate the soap you will need 1 cup grated soap.

1 cup Baking Soda

1 cup washing soda you can go Here to see how to make your own 

1 cup Borax

These two things are optional

1/3 cup Purex crystals this makes it smell so good, I don’t use this all the time but I figure that I am saving n the washing soda so I can use a little of this, plus you don’t use a whole lot per batch.

1 cup of oxy clean I use the dollar store one or the store brand. I like to use this in the summer when our clothes get so dirty.

Put all this in to a food processor if you do not have a food processor just put into a large bowl.

Mix all together, then pour into a container use 2 to 3 Tablespoons per load.

When I had a front load washer ( which I did not like )  I added the soap to the drum after I put in the clothes

You can double or triple this to make a larger batch.

    I really want to try this out. One of my kids has eczema, and another has respiratory allergies to an unidentified fragrance. So, making my own laundry soap would probably be pretty helpful!

    I haven’t made my own laundry soap, but I think it’s a great idea! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

    Ah, love this post, I used to make my own laundry soap, but it wasn’t quite like this! Ours used to separate, I’ll bet it would have helped if we used our food processor! Maybe I’ll give it another go! Thanks for the cool DIY and thanks for linking up with #TuneInThursday this week. See you next time!
