Eureka! After scouring the internet and testing recipe after recipe, I have finally created a laundry detergent recipe that I like. It’s powerful and I swear it performs better than any commercial laundry detergent I’ve ever used. The best part? I know how to pronounce everything that goes into it. Being a powder, there is no melting, pouring, sitting, or other obnoxious steps. Measure, mix, and you’re good to go.
Making My Laundry Detergent Recipe
- Fels-Naptha Soap (shredded)
- Washing Soda
Simply mix it into a container of your choice using 1 part fels-naptha, 2 parts borax, and 2 parts washing soda. To use, add 1 tbsp. per medium/light wash load, 2 tbsp. per large/heavily soiled load. This recipe is HE safe using only 1/3-1/2 the above recommended amount.

This awesome book, The Busy Mom’s Guide to Taming the Laundry Monster, is a great resource for getting laundry under control. I hate doing laundry and it often gets out of control. After reading this book, it’s a bit more manageable.
The “one size fits all” laundry systems of the past don’t really fit “all”. What is needed is a system that is as unique as the family. With grace and humor, the author encourages the busy mom to be intentional about her system. – Amazon
