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.
