How To Make Homemade Powder Laundry Detergent

Homemade Powder Laundry Detergent is a great way to save money.  I love making my own Laundry Detergent. It is so simple and good for your washing machine and clothes. I prefer to use powder detergent but have made liquid detergent before too. I will also do a post for liquid too 🙂  This recipe makes 40 loads and works in my opinion better than store bought.  My clothes clean well and I have been using it for a long time with much success.  I use it on my husbands work clothes and kids clothes and it lifts stains like store bought detergent.  I do use stain remover like I do with store bought detergent as well.

You only need 3 ingredients to make this! Yes only 3 things ~ Borax, Arm & Hammer Washing Soda and a Fels Naptha Bar.

How To Make Homemade Powder Laundry Detergent:

Put the Fels Naptha Bar in a food processor (or blender) and blend into a powder. Mix with 1 cup Arm & Hammer Washing Soda and 1/2 cup Borax. All you need is 2 Tablespoons per load.

This recipe makes 40 loads.

  1. I think I’m doing something wrong because this is not going to last for 40 loads for me. Is it 2 tablespoons per load? Are there different sizes of the fels napa bar? Thank you!
