I need a cheap, hypoallergenic, recipe for powdered laundry soap.
By T. J. from Door Co., WI
I like Palmolive Bleach Alternative Dish Soap, it really gets clothes clean and leaves them smelling fresh. I know it doesn't hurt my skin because I have my hands in it all the time and I wash laundry with it.
Just use grated, non-scented castile soap.
Look on the internet for homemade detergent, budget101.com has awesome homemade ideas.

I have a 6 month old. Are homemade laundry detergents hypoallergenic? If so what are good and cheap recipes for it?
Remember to use white vinegar as a softener. It helps get all the soap residue off of clothing and it will not smell once it is dry. My daughter has soap/skin issues and we use 1 cup borax, 1 cup washing soda, 1/2 dram Bronner castile soap and 1 scoop of oxygen cleaner. For use: 1 Tbsp for frontload machine, 2Tbsp for top load machine.
Also, use olive oil soap for food stains on clothes, really works and no harsh chemicals. (03/04/2009)
