Dr. Green Mom DIY Laundry Recipes

Non-Toxic Do It Yourself (DIY) Recipes

Powder Laundry Detergent

  • 3 cups washing soda
  • 4 cups baking soda
  • 2 cups castile soap (flakes)
  • 15 drops essential oil
  • Mix it all together, store in a glass jar
  • Add 2 tablespoons of the powder detergent to each load of laundry.
  • Enough for 70 loads
  • I use eucalyptus, citrus, or lavender essential oil.

Liquid Laundry Detergent

  • 2 cups castile soap flakes
  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 2 cups washing soda
  • 30 drops tea tree essential oil
  • Directions: Bring 4 cups of water to a boil, add in the castile soap flakes. Stir, and continue heating the mixture until the soap is completely melted. Allow the soap mixture to cool a little bit, then pour it into a large bucket. Add in the baking soda, washing soda, and essential oils. Stir well to incorporate all ingredients. Then, add in 2 gallons of water and continue to stir. Store the liquid laundry soap in an airtight container with the lid on.  1/ 4 cup of soap is needed for each load of laundry, makes enough for 150 loads.
