  • Hi. So can you use the homemade laundry detergent in an HE washer?? I have made some and love the recipe but wondering if it will even work in my washer. And if so do you put in the machine or in the compartment? Thanks much!

    i personally don’t like the ivory, i made a batch of liquid laundry detergent with it and for some reason it smelled really bad, i threw it out and made a different batch with lever 2000 aloe fresh,

  • Now, I no longer get scum build up in the washer, my allergies have decreased, and it seems like it costs next to nothing to get laundry detergent now, unlike it used to cost. It also works well, and unlike the pre-made stuff you buy at the store, it removes odors. It also doesn’t create all these stupid suds like the commercially available stuff does. Why do big companies put foaming agents in their laundry detergents? It does nothing but cause problems.

    I just made my first batch of powdered laundry detergent. My recipe calls for 1 1/2 cup borax, 1 1/2 cup washing soda, and 1/3 bar Fels-Naptha soap. I thought I got the recipe from this website but I can’t find it on here. Should I add more bar soap since I have more borax and washing soda than your recipe? If so…how much? Thank you so much for your help!

  • I have an HE washer and just made my third batch of powdered laundry detergent. I make powdered laundry detergent for my whites using Ivory, and I make a liquid form for my warm and cold water washing using Fels Naphta. I microwaved the Ivory and had a BALL watching it foam up and then gently breaking up the dried foam (it made tiny flakes). This would be a fun home school science project!!

Homemade Laundry Detergent - The Best Natural Recipe

This harmful chemical has no real practical use in laundry detergents; essentially! YES, you got that right – it has absolutely no effect on a laundry detergent’s cleaning capabilities! Its role is purely for aesthetic purposes, and often in conventional brands, dyes are created utilizing non-natural compounds. If it’s not from a non-toxic laundry detergent brand, try avoiding products with dyes!
