Laundry Detergent

Okay, so this technically isn’t crafting but it is a product that we use ALL THE TIME that you can make at home and save a ton of money.


One of the advantages of a self-made detergent for washing is that it can be ideal for family members who have sensitive skin. Of course, there are washing detergents on the market that are specifically designed for people with special needs for skin care, but, apart from the costs of more, there is no certainty that they will work in preventing allergies and breakthroughs. This is because there are many types of sensitive skin, and each type is irritated by different types of allergens.

For example, some brands intended for people with sensitive skin contain citrus and lavender, which can cause allergy to certain types of skin. In such cases, resorting to creating your mixture, you can ensure that the individual substances that cause allergies can be excluded from the prescription.


Firstly, it should be said that all the washing detergents approved by the government for washing in the market were checked for safety to the general public and were sufficiently safe for the environment. However, studies that find that financial detergents harm health and the environment continue to be published. In particular, these studies have shown that flavors, dyes, and optical brighteners are to blame for allergies, diseases and even toxic accumulation in the water supply. As a result, some cautious housewives found that their laundry for laundry would be a much safer alternative to buying commercially available washing detergents.


Home detergents for washing make up only a small part of the price for commercially available.

Here is one recipe for home washing detergent liquid, which we found to be cheaper than commercial detergents, and seems to work even better:


1/2 cup borax

one glass of washing soda

1 bar of soap Fels-Naptha

3 gallons of water

To make your laundry liquid, rub the bar of Fels-Naptha soap until you get a bunch of soap flakes. Then add the chips, one handful at a time, to four cups of water brought to a boil, and then calmed down. After adding each serving, mix the mixture with a wooden spoon until all the flakes dissolve. Then, in a separate clean bucket, combine the resulting Fels-Naptha soap, three gallons of water, borax, and soda to wash dishes, and let it sit for twenty-four hours. At the end of this period, the substance will be lumpy, so first, mix it before use.

Use an old grater to grate the soap with a bar, and then put the grated soap in a saucepan. Place the pan on the stove and add 6 cups of water to the pan and dissolve the grated soap. Add borax and washing soda and allow it to dissolve while stirring the mixture. When it dissolves, remove the pan from the heat and pour it into a bucket and add 4 cups of hot water to the mixture and mix well. Add essential essential oil or leave it if washing does not need fragrance. Then add the remaining 22 cups of water to the bucket and mix. Leave the homemade dish soap for 24 hours, and it will become a gel and will be ready for use. Use 1/2 cup of washing soap for each load of clothes. If the clothes are not as clean as usual, add more soap to each load of laundry.

Add one cup of your home liquid laundry detergent to each normal load. You will notice that your laundry will be clean and will smell good without the artificial scent of commercially available detergents. And you, too, will get some savings!
