I tried out making some laundry soap this weekend using this tutorial. This laundry soap will clump up on you so make sure to add desiccant. Ive been saving the little packs that come with my vitamins and other random things, opened them up and made a little cloth bag to put them in. I used dr. brommers peppermint castille soap and i love how minty and clean this smells. If you use a plain bar of soap you can always add a few drops of essential oils in there too if you want it to have a little smell.
- 1/2 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1 cup washing soda
- 1/4 cup coarse sea salt
- 1 bar of Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile soapGrate the bar of soap finely. I used an old cheese grater, then thew it in my vitamix to mix a little finer. You want it to be pretty fine.
Put the grated soap in a large bowl, add all of the other ingredients, and stir to combine. If it gets a little clumpy as you stir, you can use a pastry blender to break up the clumps.Pour the laundry soap into an airtight container for storage. I used an old bucket we had from diswashing pods. You could use a big wide mouth jar of some sort too.
