Handmade Christmas Series: Laundry Detergent

Greetings! I have another handmade Christmas idea for you. This one’s for all the really practical people in your life.

Who doesn’t use laundry detergent though, right?

Now, I’ve done a couple of laundry detergent recipes on here before. As you can see, this is a powdered version.

I tweaked this one a little from my previous powdered recipe, this time using a bar of Zote Soap instead of Fels Naptha.

The Zote soap comes in a mega-sized pink bar. Besides being a pretty pink color, it smells nice and fresh too.

Here’s the recipe–it can be easily doubled, tripled, etc. if you are making a bunch of this.

1 Bar grated Zote Soap

1/2 C Arm & Hammer Washing Soda

1/2 C Borax

Mix well and store in an airtight container. Use 1 TB for a light load and 2 TB for a heavy one.

Place in a mason jar or other gift-able container, add a nice tag, and you have a great little gift!
