Homemade Laundry Detergent. Get There.

posted by on 04/02/2012 | 502 comments (leave one of your own)

Because I like to save money and need hobbies, I have been making our laundry detergent. What this really means is I can spend the money I save on extra squirrel food and Zappos. Priorities, I haz them.

We use detergent up in this mofo like crazy. I do at least two loads of laundry a day. The fact that everyone in the house (except me) thinks a bath towel is dirty after one use (IT SO IS NOT, YOU JUST WIPED YOUR CLEAN BODY DRY) keeps our hamper fully loaded. We are a family of four and I was buying a $20 box of powdered Tide at least every five weeks.

To make your very own homemade laundry detergent, you will need five ingredients


and a very large pot or bucket to dump everything into. I have my grandmother’s pot that she used for canning and there is no canning going on up in here, so it is now my detergent mixing pot.


One 4 lb 12 oz box Borax
One 4 lb box Arm & Hammer Baking Soda
One 3 pound box Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda
One 3 pound box of OxiClean
One bar of Zote
(This recipe yields approximately 160 ounces of dry detergent.)

stock pot

Put all the ingredients into pot, it is also recommended to have two helpers if you want to take photos.


I have made this detergent with another type of bar laundry soap, but Zote soap (found at Home Depot) is my favorite.  Plus it reminds me of Fight Club.


Grate the entire bar of Zote and add it to the powder.  Mix it up yourself because at this point your helpers will become bored playing soap makers and leave you to your own devices.


With a gigantic mess. Probably.  Tonight? We make soap.


I portioned it out into two 80 ounce glass jars that were once home to green olives that I saved from the bar. You only need one tablespoon per load of laundry, I use two if the clothes are super dirty. We have a HE top loader washer and this detergent works just fine in cold or warm water, I just toss a scoop of powder directly onto the laundry.  I make and I sell soap (said Tyler Durden).


The grand total for my homemade soap that will last at least six months? $18.

In the end, you will thank me.

OK, I’m done.

    Fun fact: Oxiclean’s main ingredient is Sodium Precarbonate. Which is Sodium Carbonate with hydrogen peroxide. Washing Soda is Sodium Carbonate. So really if you used 2 boxes of Washing Soda you can forgo the Oxiclean’s.
