I like using bar soap in our Homemade Liquid Laundry Detergent. I used Johnson’s baby bar soap in this batch. You can also use Dr Bronner’s baby mild Castile liquid soap. If you use a powder detergent try our Homemade Laundry Powder Detergent
Homemade Liquid Laundry Detergent
You will need:
- 1 bar Johnson’s Baby Bar
- 1 ½ cups A&H Super Washing Soda
- 2 gallons of water
- 10 drops lavender essential oil
How to make liquid baby laundry detergent
Grate the entire soap bar finely, you can just use your kitchen grater to do this.
In a large pot over medium-high heat combine water, grated soap, and washing soda.
Stir frequently until soap is melted and you have a thick soupy mixture.
Remove from heat and allow to cool, stir in lavender essential oil.
Once completely cooled stir soap mixture again well until it has gelled and thickened more, transfer contents to smaller containers for easier dispensing, you can upcycle empty laundry detergent bottles that have been well rinsed, use mason jars, or other sturdy containers.
Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup to your washer, shaking container before each use.
