30 Days of Creativity: Day 8 – Liquid Laundry Detergent

2011 June 8

Why haven’t I made this before? This was so easy, and much cheaper than the local earth-friendly stuff I was buying. Here I’ve taken an empty detergent container, mixed several simple ingredients on the stove, and voila!

Thanks to Heather at A Handmade Life for providing a very straightforward recipe. Here are the ingredients I used:

  • 1/2 bar Kirk’s Castile soap, grated
  • 1/2 cup borax
  • 1/2 cup washing soda
  • water


After melting the grated soap into 8 cups of water.

Then I dissolved the borax and washing soda into the soap mix and added 8 more cups of water. Finally, I divided it into containers and added more water. After making a label, it’s now on the shelf and ready to use. Easy!
