Homemade Laundry Detergent

I love this homemade laundry detergent so much! Ever since the unexpectedly far-reaching effects of the liver cleansing diet kicked in, I’ve been on a make-my-own kick.

This laundry detergent works so well. Much better than other high-scoring (according to EWG) natural detergents, and just as well as some regular ones I’ve used in the past. The only issue I noticed was that our clothes weren’t quite as soft. This is easily remedied, either by adding some white vinegar, or by adding a scoop of a salt-based softener (also homemade!).

My full recipe and a step-by-step are published over on Apartment Therapy. Chalkboard labels and chalk marker are from Amazon (but spell lavender correctly on your label). If you’ve ever considered trying to make some, do it! It’s thrilling. =)
