Homemade Laundry Soap -- H #atozchallenge


Here’s the breakdown of the ingredients in homemade laundry detergent and their function:
 
Bar Soap – The most crucial ingredient, soap gives the detergent its cleaning power. DIYers recommend several brands to use in homemade detergents, including Kirk’s Castile, Dr. Bronner's  Fels Naptha or Zote. These last two are marked laundry soap and work very well in homemade detergent.
 
Borax – Also known as sodium borate, borax is a naturally occurring mineral that acts as a whitener and deodorizer.
 
Washing Soda – not to be confused with baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), washing soda is sodium carbonate, also known as soda ash, and it helps to remove dirt and odors.
 
Fragrant or essential oils – you can add some of your favorite oil essence to give a nice fragrance to your detergent. Recommended amounts are one to two ounces per load. Tea tree oil has the added benefit of acting as a disinfectant, so it’s great for washing cloth diapers, hand towels or linens from a sick family member.




Enjoy and Save On!!
