I have been doing some laundry cleaning research lately and I wanted to share a recipe for creating your own laundry detergent and dryer sheets.

Laundry Detergent:

Mix together 1/4 cup Washing Soda, 1/4 cup Borax, 1/4 cup Castile Soap, and 1 gallon water in a container of your choice.

Washing Soda (different from baking soda) neutralizes and eliminates odors, enhances your laundry soap, and a natural whitener that is safe for colors.

Borax enhances the power of your soap and is a color safe whitener.

Castile soap is a natural, non-toxic, multi-purpose vegetable based soap. It’s biodegradable, you can get it scented or unscented, and categorized as a disinfectant and will kill 99% of germs.

You would use equal amounts of this as you would any store bought laundry detergent.

Mix together 1 cup vinegar and 1/2 cup lemon juice. You could use essential oil in place of the lemon juice. In a container place wash clothes or cloths, pour the mixture over the washcloths and place the lid on top. When you are ready to use one, pull it out and stick it in the dryer.

Vinegar – this is a natural cleaner and fabric softener.

Lemon juice is also acidic so same qualities as vinegar, & added a nice lemon smell.
