Do your part in keeping our waters clean and healthy with eco-friendly laundry detergent!
Borax-Free Laundry Detergent
1 ½ cup baking soda
1 ½ cup washing soda
½ cup epsom salt
2 Tbsp salt
A few drops of essential oils for scent (my favorite combination is lavender and lemon)
Note: Many DIY laundry detergents contain borax. I prefer to remain borax-free for washing clothes for since Borax performs better in hot/warm water wash and I mostly wash with cold water (saves electricity and less harsh on my clothes)
Blend in food processor using mill blade to evenly distribute the mixture.
Note: My blender is not big enough so I half this recipe.
Approximately 1 heaping Tbsp per load.
If you need extra cleaning powder for especially dirty clothes, add vinegar to your laundry.
