Here’s how to save money by making your own DRY laundry detergent. Most “make your own laundry detergent” recipes make a slimy concotion that you have to constantly stir. The ingredients are simple. 1 bar of soap (we used Fels Naptha); 1 cup washing soda; and one cup of Borax. You can make your own laundry detergent for as little as $.02 per load. People with allergies and sensitive skin often find relief when they make their own laundry detergent. When you make your own laundry detergent you can add essential oils or other soap for a scent if you like. Some people add oxi-clean or other ingredients as needed. We used the Champ HP3 blender by K-Tec (Vita-mix 5000 is another option) and our food processer to make the process easier. The original recipe source says that this homemade laundry detergent can be used in HE washers and is fine on septic systems but we cannot make any promises.
The difference between baking soda and washing soda is that the latter is acidic while the former is alkaline. Baking soda is NaHCO3. Washing soda is Na2CO3 When baking soda is heated, it breaks down to become washing soda, steam, and carbon dioxide.

Your description is wrong. Baking soda is not acidic. Want proof? Add vinegar. Watch it fizz, as an acid base reaction occurs, releasing carbon dioxide gas. This is grade school chemistry. You should be ashamed…

Fels-Naptha and zote bars are laundry soaps that are stain removals. Ivory soap is recommended for people who are really sensitive and need a natural mild soap. I've never heard of any other soaps being used.

bobsuruncle says:

Have you had a problem with the detergent not dissolve completely and leave, what resembles, small grease stains on clothes.

We are not sure if it the detergent is the problem, or if our washing machine is too ecofriendly, not enough water…
But some of the clothes end up with those spots now.

Casey Fischer says:

is this stuff safe for a mix of color and white in one load

Stephan Vaudiau says:

Here's the thing. You will not want to use that food processor bowl, blender body, or grater for food ever again.

Justeen says:

So I did end up making my own detergent. Turns out, it is not much cheaper this way than my $12 bottle of liquid eco detergent. Aww shucks! I guess here in Canada the three key ingredients are not so cheap.

Chrystal Lee says:

a large bottle of Tides costs about $13.00

The kid reminds me the young actor of Anakin Skywalker …

Pamela Walker says:

I'm try this way but I have a family of five, so I'm use everything here but I'm use the whole boxes and oxi-clean with some fragrance.

Very well done video.

adilene rojas says:

Nunya Dambidnis says:

will zote work n color clothes?

ratrod diesels says:

those are the best laundry products available they work better than any others . i had also heard a half of cup of vinegar added to the rinse cycle will eliminate any residue of soap left on clothing , no vinegary odor and it helps in softening .
