Homemade Borax-Free Laundry Detergent

Homemade Borax-Free Laundry DetergentThis recipe costs about forty cents per load – not too bad for doing it yourself!
1/2 cup baking soda

⅓ cup of lemon juice

1 cup washing soda

1/4 cup coarse sea salt

1 bar of Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile soap ( these are available with natural fragrance as well)

Grate the bar in your food processor, or very finely by hand.

Place the grated soap in a large bowl and combine the other ingredients and stir to break up any clumps.

Pour the soap into a container with a lid

Pour the laundry soap into an airtight container for storage.

If you’re doing regular-sized loads of laundry, use 1 tablespoon of laundry soap per load. If you’re doing a large load, or your clothes are extra dirty, use 2 tablespoons per load.
