Homemade laundry detergents are naturally low-sudsing. Make low-suds laundry detergent with water, a bar of soap, Borax, baking soda and the essential oil of your choice. You also need a grater, a stock pot, a funnel, a long spoon and two empty containers with lids.Continue Reading
Grate the bar of soap you chose into a large bowl. Use the finest grater that works so your soap melts quicker.
Add 1 liter of water to a stock pot. Heat the water on medium-high heat. Add grated soap a little bit at a time. Stir the soap gently until it dissolves.
Remove the pot from the stove when the soap dissolves. Stir in 1 cup of Borax and 1/2 cup of baking or washing soda. Continue stirring until the mixture dissolves completely. Allow to cool.
Add 20 drops of the essential oil of your choice.
Place a funnel in one container. Slowly pour the liquid into the container, filling the container three-fourths full. Fill the second container the same way. Seal the containers with lids.
Use 1/2 cup of laundry detergent for each load of clothes. The recipe creates enough detergent for over 30 loads of laundry.
