Laundry Detergent

laundry detergent

Here is a recipe for my laundry detergent. It is super easy and super inexpensive.

1 bar Ivory soap grated
1 cup Borax
1 cup Washing Soda
(I get mine at Walmart or Winco for only a few dollars each)

Put all ingredients into blender or food processor. Blend for a couple minutes until the Ivory is no longer grated but it is all just powdery granules. Store in desired container.

Use 2 Tablespoons in each load.

My half gallon jar will hold a double recipe and cleans 64+ loads. I buy one box of each product about every 6 months. It only cost me $1.50 for this recipe, $3.00 if I fill up my half gallon jar. How’s that for savings?!?!? And I haven’t had any issues with my clothes getting clean.


You can also use Fels Naptha in place of the Ivory. I have found that warm water washing is necessary when using Fels Naptha, I tend to find it stuck to the clothes when using cold water.
