Homemade washing powder.

I’ve had a few friends ask me about my washing powder. When I tell them about some of the simply changes I’ve been doing they laugh. But when I explain what’s in washing powder you buy and how much you can save making it yourself then they ask how?

So here goes.
Into a large sealable container add the following-
1 box of lux flakes*
1 packet of borax
1 packet of washing soda
* you can grate one box of home brand sunlight soap. Just watch your knuckles

You can stop there if you want this will wash well.

I also add the following
1 packet of Vanish/nappysan
1 packet of Purex Crystals (I used to add a drop or two of essential oils into the top but find doing this now easier)

Cost is approx $15


This how much I use for a full load 7kg machine




As you can see it make a lot. I won’t to make or buy any washing powder for months.

If you make some let me know what you think.

God Bless

  1. I’m going to start making some of my own products soon also… and have some recipes sorted out, just need a bit extra cash to make the initial purchases that will save us loads of money in the long run.
