DIY Laundry Detergent


I have been telling a lot of people about my DIY laundry detergent! I’ve read a lot of posts and asked a couple people and found this list of ingredients works best! Let me know how you like it!


1 bar of Fels-Naptha soap (you will need to grate this)

1 cup Arm & Hammer all natural washing soda

1/2 cup Borax


I found all ingredients at my local grocery store!


  • Boil 4 cups water and add grated soap, slowly, stirring until melted
  • Fill a 5 gallon bucket half full of hot water
  • Add melted soap, laundry soda and Borax to the hot water and stir
  • Fill the rest of the 5 gallon bucket with more hot water and stir again
  • Cover and allow to sit over night
  • Fill a large laundry detergent dispenser 1/3 to 1/2 full of water, and fill rest of way with detergent and shake to mix
  • Shake before each use

1/4 cup= small load      1/2 cup= medium load     3/4 cup= large load
