Homemade Powder Laundry Detergent

After using the Homemade liquid laundry detergent and liking it, I wanted to give the powdered a try just for a comparison.  I will let you know which I like better after more washes.

     Powder Laundry Detergent

  • 1 bar natural soap (I used Tom’s Sensitive)
  • 1 c Borax
  • 1 c Washing soda
  • essential oils of your choice (6-8 drops)

Grate soap, add powders, mix.  hmmmm simple enough but well, who likes that?  So, I made this x5, and the last cup of washing soda I had to replace with 1 cup baking soda, because I ran out…… oops!  Also I added about 30-40 drops of Peppermint before I stirred it all up just to give it a nice ahhhhhhh smell, my kids really like the peppermint.
