My previous post of Liquid Laundry Detergent Recipe was such a huge hit, I had people actually requesting the powder version. How much do you love me? … Cause I’ve got a powder recipe for you. Mind you, the liquid version comes out to be .028 cents a load which is the best value, this powder version still beats store bought value at .04 cents a load!
Things you’ll need:
Fels-Naptha bar (found in the laundry aisle)
Washing Soda (NOT BAKING SODA)
An air-tight container
This recipe makes 48 loads worth, and at 1 tablespoon a load you won’t need a huge storage container for this one.
Start by grating your Fels-Naptha bar– the whole thing.
Originally, I didn’t think to use a blender so I was grating using the finest side possible. I didn’t think about the blender until I added the other two ingredients. It just didn’t look right have shreds, so I threw the whole thing in the blender to make powder. Save yourself the hassle, just throw it in the blender now (grate it first, you don’t want to hurt your blender blades!)
Next, add 1 and 1/2 cup Borax
Add 1 and 1/2 cup Washing Soda
If you are me, at this point you throw it in the blender.
And stir some more.
