How to Make Laundry Washing Powder


If it’s a part of your plan to become more of a do it yourself “natural” kind of person then we put together a post that will help you do just that.

Here we will talk about how to create your very own laundry washing powder without stepping one foot in a  supermarket. The good news in this is that not only can it be done very easily, with bouncy castle ingredients are normally very easy to find and mixing up a batch is a cinch.

Here are the ingredients:

1 Cup Grated Fels Naptha Soap or Zote (available online or in most grocery or hardware stores.

Zote is often available in Hispanic grocery stores)

1/2 Cup Washing Soda

1/2 Cup Borax

If you want to add essential oils, feel free to include them to your tastes.

Now it’s time to bring out the witch’s cauldron to make your first batch.

If you haven’t grated the Naptha Soap or Zote, you will need to do so with a food processor. Remember that the package of Zote is usually about twice the size of a bar of Naptha Soap, so if you want to use the entire package of Zote, you will need to double the measurement of the remaining ingredients to make the consistency right. A benefit of this, of course, is that you will have a double-sized batch which, if you are going to make a mess, why not go ahead and do it? The ingredients will easily fit into a standard sized food processor anyway, so why not?

Once you have grated the soap, next add the washing soda to the mixture. If you can’t find washing soda, opt for baking soda and oxi-clean instead. Oxi-clean is essentially the same thing, but with added peroxide, which does add hüpfburg kaufen some bleaching action, but should be color safe. Baking soda is also half as alkaline as washing soda, so by using baking soda, you will have a gentler soap as a result.

It is important to note that when you include the Oxi-clean, be careful to add it slowly since the peroxide will tend to bubble once it hits the mixture. So if you don’t want a frothy mess, be careful.

On the other hand, if all of this natural stuff, not to mention the chemistry lesson is a little too much for you, try instead using The Laundry Center for your next laundry pickup and delivery. Not only will you avoid the soapy mess, but they will pick up and deliver your laundry wherever you happen to be, even if you’re busy making your laundry detergent at the time.
