DIY Laundry Detergent

Made my own laundry detergent! I took an intolerance and toxin test recently and all my toxins were cleaning items. I got lazy and kept buying store bought and even myself got tricked by the "green washing" tricks. You might wonder what green washing is, Greenwashing is the process of conveying a false impression or providing misleading information about how a company's products are more environmentally sound. Greenwashing is considered an unsubstantiated claim to deceive consumers into believing that a company's products are environmentally friendly.





This recipe took maybe 2 minutes to make.

Instructions:


Simply mix all the ingredients together and you're good to go. Add 1-2 tablespoons per load. I like to add mine to the bottom of the washer, fill it a bit, and then add clothes to make sure it dissolves. If you want to turn this into a liquid detergent, add 2/3 cup boiling water to grated castile soap and dissolve. Then add other ingredients and add water until you reach a gel-like consistency.




Let me know if you try it!
