Lavender Lemon Homemade Laundry Detergent Without Borax

homemade lemon lavender laundry detergent



  1. Using a cheese grater, grate one bar of soap into a large bowl.
  2. Add washing soda, baking soda and citric acid to bowl.
  3. Mix everything together thoroughly.
  4. Add essential oils.
  5. Add 1 tablespoon of vinegar. It will fizz a bit, but that is just the vinegar reacting with the baking soda. 
  6. Mix into the soap mixture. The vinegar helps soften your clothes. If it doesn’t get too wet, you can add more than 1 tablespoon, but I don’t recommend adding more than 2.
  7. Add mixture to an airtight container.
  8. Use 1/4 cup per load.
