My Favorite Laundry Detergent Recipe Ever!!!

on May 22, 2018

As you guys know…..I love to experiment, and to make my own cleaners, etc!  I’ve tried a few laundry detergent recipes, liquid and powder, and this, by far, is my favorite!  The recipe is out of the book, Synergy, It’s an Essential Oil Thing, by Dr. Scott A. Johnson and Dr. Joshua J. Plant.  Thanks for the recipe guys, I’m sticking with this one! :))

Here’s the recipe for you to try!

Laundry Detergent (Powder)

From the book… Enjoy clean clothes naturally with this combination of washing soda, baking soda, soap, borax, and essentail oils.  Your laundry will be cleaned, disinfected, and smell great with this group of antimicrobial oils.

 2 cups washing soda

2 cups baking soda

1 bar Zote soap (14.1 oz.)

1 cup borax (or substitute sodium sesquicarbonate)

20 drops essentail oil

**For a citrus scent….5 drops lemon, 5 drops orange, 5 drops tangerine, 3 drops grapefruit, 2 drops lemongrass.

**For a fresh scent….7 drops pine, 7 drops eucalyptus, 4 drops balsam fir, 2 drops Pür Vie (citronella).

Add  drops to suit your taste.  I love the fresh scent!!

Grate the soap bar with a cheese grater (I used my food processor) and place in blender or food processor.  Mix borax, washing soda, and baking soda in a large bowl.  Slowly add about 1 cup of the powdered mixture to the blender or food processor until all the mixture has been added and blended together.  Drop the essential oils into the mixture and blend for about 10 or 20 seconds.  Place finished product in a half-gallon container.  Use 1-2 tablespoons per load of laundry.

Make doing laundry FUN!

Happy washing!

Enjoy.
