Commercial laundry detergent is expensive and full of chemicals and dyes. Making your own laundry detergent is inexpensive and all-natural!
You will need:
~1 cup Arm and Hammer washing soda* (not soap)
~1 cup borax*
~1 cup baking soda
~1 1/2 bars all natural soap, grated
Mix all ingredients together and store in a container with a medium-sized scoop.
Use 1/2 of a scoop for a small load of laundry, or 1 scoop for a large load of laundry.
*Washing soda and borax can both be found on the laundry detergent/cleaning aisle in your local grocery store.
