Easiest Homemade Laundry Detergent

Lately I’ve been on a DIY kick and have been trying all kinds of home recipes for things, like Homemade Liquid Laundry Detergent. And, I finally got a good soy yogurt recipe! more on that later.

So a few weeks ago, I decided to try making my own laundry detergent. I found some really cool looking pictures on Pinterest, but many of the recipes were far too complicated for me. I tend to be fairly lazy about things. I’ll do something complicated once (or a few times), but if it’s going  to become part of my routine, it HAS to be EASY.

Homemade Laundry Detergent Ingredients

Inexpensive and easy-to-find ingredients to make your own liquid laundry detergent.

Ok, so here goes. The basic proportions are from a recipe I found here: http://mymerrymessylife.com/2012/03/diy-homemade-laundry-detergent-cheap-and-green-free-printable-2.html

Because I wasn’t sure how my sensitive-skinned family would react, I made a much smaller first batch:

1/3 cup peppermint castile soap (can be any scent you like.)
1/4 cup washing soda
1/3 cup borax
1 gallon water

Mix it up (disolve dry ingredients in warm water before adding castile soap).

This yields a very mild and effective laundry detergent.

And here’s what I found when I “ran the numbers.”

ScreenShot815$1.75 to make a gallon of detergent, which comes out to about 2 cents per load of laundry at 1/3 cup of detergent per wash. Compared to Liquid Tide, which comes out to about 65 cents per load. Is it a huge savings, 62 cents per load? Well, not much until you add up a whole year worth of laundry for a family of four or more…

And it’s easy to do, with inexpensive, easy to find ingredients. No muss, no fuss, easy to mix, easy to use. I’m keeping it.
