DIY Natural Laundry Detergent – Castile Soap
- Prep Time: 5 mins.
- Total Time: 5 mins.
- Yield: 2 gallons 1x
- Category: Laundry Detergent
- Take your two gallon bucket and pour lukewarm to cold water in the bottom of it, about an inch high of water
- Add the dry powders (baking soda, super washing soda)
- Add more water if necessary to cover the powders then take your hand mixer or immersion blender and blend the powders for a few minutes, or until it is fully blended and there are no clumps.
- Fill your two-gallon bucket up almost all the way with tap water (the temperature doesn’t matter).
- Add the castile soap (this helps it not to bubble up), and stir with a long-handled spoon.
- Using the funnel, pour into your containers.
- Use 1/3 cup per load for HE washers, or 1/2 cup for non HE washers.
Other Supplies Needed:
- 2 one-gallon containers in which to store the detergent (I recycled an old laundry detergent container and a vinegar jug)
- A measuring cup or two
- A two-gallon bucket or larger (I used my old mop bucket)
- Funnel to pour the detergent from the bucket into the containers (not necessary but certainly helpful!)
- 1 hand blender or immersion blender
