How To Make Easy Homemade Laundry Soap Recipe

via One Good Thing

The first step will be to make soap pellets with your soap bar. These need to be tiny enough to dissolve while in your washing machine. You can do this by either using a blender, a food processor or even a cheese grater.

If using a blender or processor, begin by chopping the soap bar into chunks. Add in some of the OxiClean to stop the bar from sticking together. Blend until it resembles small pellets.

Next, you’ll need to mix everything up. The easiest way (and the way Jillee prefers) is by throwing everything into trash bags. Pour the laundry soap pellets you made, along with the borax, washing soda, baking soda, OxiClean and Purex Crystals (if using) in a large bag.

Tie it up and place it into a second trash bag so you don’t end up with a mess. Push, turn and roll the bag around well to mix everything up.

Using Your Homemade Laundry Soap

Now that your Soap is ready, you can store it in a container or jar with a good-fitting lid. Jillee also recommends adding in a few gel silica packets if you live in a particularly humid area. Depending on how often you do laundry, this soap could last you up to a year.

You’ll only need to use about 1-2 tbsp of this detergent per wash, depending on how dirty the load is. Here are the usage guidelines:

  • For a regular wash, use 2 tbsp of detergent
  • Small wash, use 1 1/2 tbsp
  • Extra-large or heavily soiled wash, use 2 1/2 tbsp
