Easy recipe. I wash in hot or warm and use 1-3 scoops depending on the load size.
Sam's Homemade Laundry Powder
Tools & Ingredients:
Box- I use an old laundry detergent box.
Scoop- I use an old laundry detergent scoop.
Stirring utensil- I use a fork.
Measuring cup, optional.
Borax- its a natural deodorizer powder. I got mine at Canadian Tire.
Baking powder- I like to find an aluminum-free one if possible.
Glycerine, glycerine soap, or plain natural soap
Measure out equal amounts of borax and baking soda and put them in the box. I usually use 2 cups of each.
Shred your soap bar into box and stir well.
Add 2-4tbsp of sea salt.
It's done, you are ready for some laundry!
I pair my laundry powder with a homemade herbal liquid laundry, which I will post soon. Sam's Natural Laundry Liquid contains essential oils, soap berry, vinegar and a little sunflower oil. I believe the 2 of these together make a great team, leaving the laundry soft and smelling however we like!
In terms of regular washes, I love this laundry powder. When cleaning whites, I still like to add a scoop of a natural version of Oxyclean powder to ensure whites stay white.
