With 4 kids we go through SO. MUCH. LAUNDRY. It was getting costly buying natural laundry detergents and powders. I have experimented with various recipes over the years, but always come back to this one.
It is simple, safe, effective and CHEAP! Plus it is borax free and you dont have to grate any bars of soap.
You can cut this recipe in half or double it if you are like me and like to have a large stock on hand. This natural laundry powder is also sensitve skin safe!
You can easily tweak it if you wanted to add some soap flakes, but I have found it cleans just as well as it is without all of the hassle of grating soap.
3 CUPS WASHING SODA
3 CUPS BAKING SODA
1.5 CUPS EPSOM SALT
6 TABLESPOONS SEA SALT
25-30 DROPS ESSENTIAL OIL (OPTIONAL)
To make the base mixture, combine the washing soda, baking soda, epsom salt, sea salt and mix well. Stir in fragrance if using.
Keep in a container with a tight fitting lid.
Use about 2 tablespoons per load. This will last for roughly 60 loads.
