DIY- I made my own homemade laundry detergent

C Girl stayed home from school yesterday after being so sick on Sunday. Thankfully, she got much better as the day went on.
They are loving our Christmas book every night!
We wrote letters to Santa last night and today we took them and mailed them!
 I've been meaning to tell y'all that I made my own laundry detergent recently.  
I am L-O-V-I-N-G it!  
I decided to go with a powdered version over the gel version.  I thought it would be easier on me.
My concoction is 2 c. Borax, 2 c. Washing soda, 1 Fels Naptha bar (grated), and 1/4 cup Purex scent crystals.
It smells DIVINE! I'm constantly sniffing my laundry now!
It cleans the clothes just as well, if not better, than the liquid store bought detergent I used before.


  1. Do you wash anything in cold water? Does the power dissolve? I have been curious about trying it, but I mostly wash cold.

    1. I wash everything except towels in cold water. I have not had any problems with it dissolving!


I always love hearing from you!
