Easy Homemade Laundry Detergent

If you want to make your own easy homemade laundry detergent, then here are some recipes to try! 

There seem to be hundreds of versions of this on the net – but the consensus is this one!

I love making my own laundry powder and liquid as it is gentle on the skin. My boys have very sensitive skin and this version seems to stop the ‘itch’.

How Much Money Can You Save?

I compared the cost of making homemade laundry detergent to leading Supermarket brands such as Omo (which is fantastic but one of the most expensive laundry detergents on the market).

When you break it down to cost per wash – here were the findings:

  • Omo cost per wash: From 45c – 50c per wash
  • Homemade Laundry Detergent: 5c – 15c per wash

That is a huge saving – especially when you add up the cost over a year if you are a frequent washer (ie people with little kids that are washing constantly!).
