• DIY Homemade Laundry Detergent

    Want cheap, effective laundry detergent without synthetic toxins? This Homemade Laundry Detergent is 100% natural, free from synthetics, has antifungal, antibacterial and antiseptic properties, and is cheap when the ingredients are bought in bulk. Your clothes will get a great wash with as little cost to you as to the environment.

    Here is what we’ve used and why.

    Coconut Soap Flakes are freshly grated from 100% pure coconut soap, so its antibacterial and antifungal properties mean your clothes will get a thorough clean.

    Bi Carb is a natural deodoriser, making it powerful on smelly washing. It also has antifungal, antibacterial and antiseptic properties.

    Oxygen Bleach is a natural alternative to Chlorine Bleach – it brightens clothes, removes stains, is great for colours, and all without the harsh synthetics. It also disinfects clothing from household bacteria.

    Washing Soda acts as a natural laundry detergent and softens water, making the soap and sudsing more effective (1).

    Ingredients

    Method

    1. Place all the dry ingredients in a blender or small electric coffee grinder. Blend on high for one minute to ensure all ingredients are combined into a powder.

    How To Use

    Put 2-3 tbsp of the homemade laundry detergent in your washing machine dispenser, or in a tub of water to hand wash.

      It doesn’t make any reference, so it would be great if you can edit the article or advise if this is safe for front loader machines (as well as top loading) ? Generally a little extra care is needed for front loaders so I’d appreciate any variations or confirmation before using this.
      Thanks in advance! 🙂
