  • 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 make a powder laundry detergent but want to add a fragrance oil to the wash. Is it okay to add it directly to in the washer when the water level is at maximum level? Or should I add it to the powder and mix it thoroughly? I just want that fresh smell to my clothes.

    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!!

  • Matt,
    I do have a question I made the powder Laundry detergent LOVE IT!!! I noticed as I was doing laundry that when I added the detergent the ivory soap that I used floats to the top, is that normal? I also follow up with vinigar as the fabric softener so we dont get residue on our clothes. Also what is your recipe for the liquid? I just want to try it.

Best Ever Homemade Powdered Laundry Detergent Tutorial

I use this recipe for powdered laundry detergent for all my laundry including cloth diapers. My baby is now 7 months old, and the diapers are really starting to smell as soon as they are wet. I have tried stripping them a few different ways–with vinegar, soaking in the tub, etc. (we have a front loader). Nothing seems to work! I use 1/8 cup detergent for each load. I think we have hard water, do you think that is the problem? I thought washing soda acted as a water softener. Do you have any advice? My poor baby stinks when he barely wets. I would love to hear any advice you might have.
