A detergent is a necessary thing in every household as we all do laundry. You don't have to buy one if you can manage to avoid adding harmful and allergic chemicals and make them all natural. Making your own detergent is also very cheap. Another good thing about handmade soaps is that if you add essential oils like lemon or lavender to your clothes, you can add whatever smell you love to them. I've prepared a few recipes for you to choose from.

In case you don't quite like it, you can choose your own soap and fragrance crystals and completely personalize this recipe. It's very forgiving and customizable to suit your needs and wants.
The next vehicle is very healthy and does not contain the potentially dangerous additives found in most regular laundry detergents. Prepare 1 piece of Fels Naptha soap or 2 pieces of Kirk's Castile soap, 2 cups of washing soda and 2 cups of borax.
This recipe is only $ 16, and this soap works for a long time. It's very easy and cheap. So if you're looking for a budget version of the laundry detergent, make this soap.
Washing soda will help deodorize, but fighting grease and stains is the main purpose. Borax is a natural stain remover and a great alternative to bleaching because it is an anti-fungal / mold and all-round disinfectant. In connection with normal soap it increases the cleaning power considerably. Both ingredients help make this laundry detergent cool.
This soap is safe for the washing machine and is great for sensitive skin, including children. This is a cheap laundry detergent without sacrificing quality. Read the project to make it.
To make this soap you will need 2 cups of washing soda, 2 cups of borax, and 1 piece of Zote laundry soap. The tutorial is pretty simple and quick, and you can find all the ingredients easily.
Do you want a laundry detergent with an amazing smell? Do this with lavender! The supplies are almost the same as anywhere, but you will also add 2 tbsp. Lavender leaves and 20 drops of lavender oil, so that your clothes smell naturally pleasant. By the way, essential oils not only give a cool scent, but also degrease clothing.
This non-allergic detergent works 100%. So don't hesitate to make this soap. Find all the ingredients and mix them together, then place them in airtight containers. It's a great and burget-friendly recipe.
Don't you wanna waste money Make this laundry soap for only $ 3! Borax, washing soda, and soap are all you need to make this laundry detergent. The only thing that takes time here is rubbing the bar of soap.
This laundry detergent has a slightly different recipe, it contains lemon essential oil as a stain remover, degreaser and vinegar. Vinegar is necessary because it helps dissolve excess laundry detergent and salt off clothes. Laundry detergents have a very alkaline pH value that can irritate the skin. By using a vinegar rinse, the pH value is reset to a skin-friendly level.
To give your laundry soap a scent, you can add not only essential oils, but Purex crystals as well. This recipe tells you what else to add, read, and realize.
