Homemade Laundry Soap Recipes

A great Homemade Laundry Soap is a money saving plan that is not only an environmentally friendly cleaning product, but also a great addition to your homemade household cleaners. When you learn to make your own homemade laundry detergent- you are adding natural ingredients, removing harmful additives and saving money! Store bought laundry detergent and fabric softeners are filled with dangerous chemicals and additives that are easy to replace with homemade household cleaners. Now you'll know the exact ingredients in your homemade household cleaners because you've made them yourself!

I've used several great homemade laundry soap recipes and have a few favorites. Here are some of the homemade cleaning solutions that I love!

My Favorite Homemade Laundry Soap Recipe

This is the Homemade Laundry Soap Recipe that works the best for my family. My husband works in construction and he comes home greasy, grimy and sweaty! But he likes his clothes clean & fresh! This cleaning recipe is one of my favorites!

Citric Acid is effective in making your own cleaning products as helps your soap to foam as well as acting as a highly effective water softener. It breaks down grease on your clothing as well as a natural bleaching agent. Citric Acid can be found easily on Amazon or at a local wine making shop.

Lemon & Black Pepper Essential Oils makes an invigorating blend

I use 1/8 C per load but experiment-many people use less

Three Ingredient Laundry Detergent

  • 1 Cup Arm & Hammer Baking Soda
  • ½ Cup Arm & Hammer Washing Soda
  • 1 Cup Shredded Soap

Since I make homemade soap, there are always stray bars around my house-any soap will work for this!

Simply grate the soap and add to the dry ingredients.

Add 2 T per load

Basic Homemade Laundry Soap

 It's pretty easy to make and quite effective. All of the ingredients can be found in the detergent aisle at a Wal-mart except the Baking Soda (4 pound box) is found in the baking section. This recipe contains all of the major players that we use in our environmentally friendly cleaning products.

This does make a very large amount so you may want to cut the recipe in half. There are plenty of other homemade cleaning products you can make with the left overs!

  • 1 4 lb 12 oz box Borax
  • 1 4 lb box Baking Soda
  • 1 55 oz box Washing Soda
  • 3 bars of Fels-Naptha soap (you can use an alternative type of bar soap)
  • 2 small containers of Oxy Clean

Step #1-Grate the bars of soap or cut into pieces and place into the food processor.

Step #2 – Pour all of the dry ingredients into a large container. I used a 5 gallon bucket and alternated the dry ingredients and the soap pieces. Now all you have to do is stir!

Step #3 –It's optional to add Essential Oil but I love the various essential oils recipes. Try 25 drops of the following or mix them up to make your favorite essential oils recipes!

  • Lavender
  • Lemon
  • Melaleuca
  • Grapefruit

I use a 1/8 C for each load. Some people recommend less but my husband is a hard-working, messy guy and 1/8 C works great for us!
