Homemade Laundry Detergent

Commercial laundry detergents contain a variety of harmful chemicals. From dyes, to fragrances, to irritants, there are countless reasons to ditch your commercial laundry detergents and move to your own homemade laundry detergent. It’s easy, cheaper, and effective!

Use this recipe with my Laundry Boost for the ultimate stain and stank fighting combination. Adding essential oils will give this a great scent, without the chemicals. Castile soap is sold unscented or with scent. I like to add the same essential oil as the scent used in the castile soap – lemon and eucalyptus are my favorite.

Consider the Young Living Thieves brand. Using their ultra-concentrated laundry soap, you can make three half gallon bottles of laundry detergent from just one bottle of laundry soap. Simply fill each bottle with one-third of the laundry soap and top off with water. Add a capful of Thieves household cleaner or 15-20 drops of essential oils if you want an extra boost and great smell.
