Homemade Laundry Detergent

We go through so much laundry. Laundry soap can really cut into a budget so here is a recipe to help you save dollars and keep you family smelling good. I find all of these at Harps.


  • 2 cups Borax (in the laundry section)
  • 2 cups washing soda (in the laundry section)
  • 2 bars Castile soap (next to the Ivory)
  • 1/2 cup Oxi Clean

Grate the soap then put it in the food processor and pulsate it into a fine powder. Mix all of the ingredients and store in a covered tub. I use an empty gallon ice cream bucket to keep this all in and you only need 2 tablespoons in the wash for this. It will not form a lot of suds and will get your laundry clean.


1/2 cup of vinegar in the rinse cycle will freshen your load.
