Easy Homemade Laundry Soap – One Year Supply For Less than $20!

Of course the “one year supply”  will depend on how many loads you do a year.   We used to do the liquid laundry soap recipe, but since we found this one at Being Creative, we think is a better idea.  This makes much more to last and there is no hot water handling or stirring and it is done instantly.

You will need:


  • Container or bucket to hold about 2 gallons which is how much this mixture adds up to.
  • A box and a large plastic bag for mixing
  • 1 4 lb 12 oz box Borax
  • 1 4 lb box Arm & Hammer Baking Soda
  • 1  box Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda (3 lb 7 oz)
  • 3 bars of Fels-Naptha soap or 2 bars of Zote from the Mexican store
  • 2 small containers of Oxy Clean or one that’s about 3 lbs. (optional but highly recommended if you have children like mine)
  • 1 TBS of essential oil, lavender or lemon (optional).  You can also add it as you are doing your load.


1. Line the box with the bag and mix all ingredients in it.  Grate the soap or you can process it into powder in a food processor or dry blade vita mix.
2. Add the oxy clean.
3.  Add the Borax.
4.  Add Washing Soda and Baking Soda.
5. Using the plastic bag, mix them all together in the box.
6.  Make a nice label for it, “Laundry Soap” and on the other side of the container, you can tape the recipe for next year’s supply :)


**Use 1-2 Tablespoons per load.

Try it and let me know how it works out for you!
