DIY Homemade Laundry Detergent
Would it surprise you to learn that quite a few people create their own homemade laundry detergent? Moms often choose to make homemade laundry soap to save money, while others simply want to reduce the number of chemicals they use around the house.
If you feel ready to make a batch of soap, try out these this simple homemade laundry detergent recipe:
Mix all ingredients together and keep in an air tight container until needed. Use 1-2 tablespoons per load.
Combine your baking soda, citric acid, salt, and cornstarch in a large bowl.In a separate bowl mix together your jojoba oil, witch hazel, and vanilla.
Then, very slowly pour your liquids into your dry mixture, while mixing together by hand. If you mixture seems a little dry add a few more drops of witch hazel or jojoba oil to help dampen. You don’t want it too wet. If it seems crumbly that’s okay.
Press (make sure to really press firmly) into oiled molds or muffin tins. Once this sets for 24 hours they will harden and stick together.
These make for a very relaxing bath soak, they are very nourishing to the skin because of the jojoba oil and they fizz because of the citric acid!
