There are various homemade laundry detergent recipes that you may be able to find through family and friends or other resources. Here, I will share with you one of the recipes that you may enjoy working with. The original source of this recipe is here.


1 bar Fels-Naptha bar soap
1 cup Borax
1 cup Washing Soda
1/4 cup Baking Soda


1. Grate the Fels-Naptha bar soap finely.  (Use a hand grater or alternatively, you can use a food processor).

2. Add 1 cup Borax.

3. Add 1 cup washing soda.

4. Add 1/4 cup baking soda.

5. Find a helper and stir well (that is banana on his nose, if you are wondering -- no need to be grossed out).

6. You should have a nice powdered mixture.

7. Place in an airtight container.  Use 2 tablespoons per regular load of laundry. 

The original writer of this recipe has even created a label for you that you can access to through the link above.
