Make Your Own Natural Laundry Washing Powder Using Mother Nature Product’s Natural Laundry Soap Bar:
§ 6 cups of Bicarbonate of Soda (which you’ll turn into Baking Soda) (or use pure washing powder also known as soda ash or sodium carbonate) and add a bit of borax - 2 cups (also optional)
§ ½ x 200gms of Mother Nature Laundry soap
§ non-GMO white vinegar for the rinse (optional)
§ food processor
1. Firstly, you have to turn your bicarb of soda into baking soda, and here’s how:
Pour your bicarb onto (clean and dry) baking trays and bake in the oven on 200 degrees C for about 30 - 40minutes, giving it a little juggle/mix around midway so it all bakes evenly.
When you take it out, it should have changed from a powdery substance (which you can clump together) into tiny individual grains.
2. Cut your Mother Nature Laundry soap into small chunks and add it to the food processor along with the now washing soda.
3. Blend until you have a fine powder. You may want to lay a dish towel over the top of your food processor to prevent a fine mist of powder from floating into the air. Also, let it settle a bit before opening the container or the powder will float onto your kitchen counter.
4. Pour into a clean glass container (keep the essential oil next to the jar and add 5 drops with each load or you can add it to the powder prior to blending the ingredients).
1. Add 2-3 tablespoons laundry detergent per load (hot or cold wash but some peeps recommend dissolving the solution in hot water prior to a cold wash).
2. If desired, add about five drops of lemon essential oil as a degreaser.
3. Add 1/2 cup vinegar to the fabric softener compartment.
4. Note: all of the ingredients in this recipe are considered natural and septic system safe.
