Homemade Natural Laundry Detergent

Today is the day I replenishing my laundry soap and working on some homemade stuff. Get your pencils ready for some recipes!

There is never a shortage of recycled bottles in this house because my husband (the non-environmentalist) is a soda-only drinker. Yes, we are two opposites. I personally love these little bottles from Gerber’s Organic Apple juice. They’re small and perfect for travel. They are easily stored and house 3 laundry loads each.

Combine:

1  cup water
2 oz. Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap
1 cup baking soda
1/4 cup vinegar

Mix well and pour into desired recycled container.


The concoction looks like this:

Be sure to shake up your container before each use.

Not only is this inexpensive, but a little goes a long way. The more water you add to your recipe, the longer it will stretch. You can also use less castile soap if you’d like. We typically have a lot of staining so I use more.

Dr. Bronner’s also has different scents. I use lavender so we have a hint of lavender scent in the wash.

Enjoy!
