Homemade Laundry Detergent

Made my second batch of homemade laundry detergent this weekend. My first batch lasted almost 14 months for us two! That's roughly $25 worth of detergent for over a year's supply. It's a no brainer.


  • 1 (4 lb 12 oz) Box of Borax- Found in the detergent aisle
  • 1 (3 lb 7 oz) Box of Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda- Found in the detergent aisle
  • 1 (3 lb) Container of OxyClean- Found in the detergent aisle
  • 2 (14.1 oz) Bars of Zote Soap- Found in the detergent aisle (You can also use Fels Naptha)
  • 1 (4 lb) Box of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda- Found in the cooking aisle (You could also get two 2 lb box)
  • 4 Bottles of Scentsy Washer Whiffs- found online or through a Scentsy Representative (you can also use 2 Bottles of Downy Unstoppables Fabric Enhancer- Found in the detergent aisle)
  1. Grate zote soap with cheese grater or food processor.
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a large bucket.
  3. Use 2 -4 Tablespoons per laundry load.

Thankfully, this time around I had Jaime to help me grate the bars of soap because that is a workout! Although, I had a friend tell me to microwave it until it's softened, then throw it into a blender. Might want to give it a try, I only have a nutribullet and a tiny food processor so I didn't try. 

This is what it looks like all mixed together. I had it a pretty jar before we moved into the camper but for now, this bucket serves it's purpose. Let me know if you have any questions! Enjoy! 
Happy Monday!
